Avoiding more tablets
A high HbA1c blood test result brought a lady with type 2 diabetes to me.
When we discussed her diet, it became apparent to me that the foods she was eating combined with the times she was eating at were causing blood glucose spikes, which would be elevating her HbA1c.
We discussed her options and she wanted to avoid having to increase her tablets. By making some timing changes to key aspects of her diet, we were able to bring her HbA1c down to where she wanted it.
Getting rid of hypos
A man in his 30s with an active job had type 1 diabetes and during the course of our discussion he mentioned hypos, I asked more about it and found that he had hypos every single morning at work and he accepted this as part of having diabetes.
We looked at his breakfast and his medication and I was able to give him a suggestion that would avoid having the debilitating and inconvenient hypos.
When I saw him next, he told me he had taken my advice and what a huge impact it had made; how much better and easier life was as a result.
