Re: Lab results insight please

Thanks again Julie G! I'm sorry to hear about your issues with your gallbladder. How is your MCAS now? I have it too. I keep meaning to go for an abdominal ultrasound - seems like a long list of things I need to get done. I will look into the test you mentioned. My hbA1C used to be at 5.6 when I ate...

I am a bit new to this but checked on Cronometer, 102g TOTAL carbs for today. My die...

I eat about 100g of carb per day (when I drop lower I find my mood is massively effected). Carb sources for me are seasonal veg and sweet potato. I have very little fruit - occasio...

Snps associated with elevated glucose if you are inclined to check: rs560887 (G,G) Avg. fasting Plasma Glucose 5.18...
