Shoud I lower my creatinine and still stay on my low carb diet?

Creatinine and carbs. A person's creatinine is a reflection of their muscle mass. It is also dependent on the person's sex, age and race. Staying on a low carb, or a high carb diet will have no effect on a person's serum creatinine. If your creatinine is elevated, see a nephrologist to obtain optimal care. Good luck.

Why does a very low carb diet not lower my a1c?

Consider this. Gross as it sounds, if you drank 10, 000 calories of wesson oil, your carbs would be zero and your blood sugar would very high. Low glycemic load foods will not appreciably raise your hba1c if you have adequate Insulin or hypoglycmic agents on board, so carbs themselves are not the enemy. How much you eat, how well balanced it is, and what meds you take matter. Read more...

On low carb diet last few bloodwork globulin normal but each time lower 3.0 2.8 now 2.5 what would cause this?

Not significant. The globulin is something we usually don't have to pay any attention to. It's blood proteins other than albumin, which is the primary blood protein.

I am an endomorph, I follow a low carb diet & do a lot of cardio, would I still get to 10% bodyfat if I take a day off & eat junk food 1 day per week?

Mind change. "body type" / "endomorph" talk is mostly subscience. You'll get yourself lean when, and only when, you lose your taste for high-calorie, unnutritious food. Your athletic peers will reinforce this. It's great that you're doing a lot of cardio, but save the big empty-calorie tickets for when you're out with friends and even then, impress them by eating a salad. Ask your physician for guidance.

A1c 4.9 while on low carb diet passed glucose tolerance test go to bed sugars at 100 or lower wake up 8 hrs later sugar 110 or so why & am I prediabet?

We're all Prediabeti. As we grow older, we all tend to become Insulin resistant to some degree or other. Consequently, our sugars tend to rise, along with our insulin. Insulin is the hormone that causes sugar to enter our cells, where the excess is stored as fat. I recommend a low carb diet to everyone, and also recommend that just about everyone over 30 will benefit from metformin (an Insulin receptor sensitizer). Read more...
