Naw, that wasn't long-winded at all. The more we know, the more we can help you.
Welcome! I am 71. Primal 4 years. Type II for 7. I'm on Metformin. My glucose has been OK since I was diagnosed. Then, earlier this year, it shot up. I kept reducing my carbs. To make up for that, I increased the fat in my diet, especially with whole-milk dairy products. Don't get me wrong. I think saturated fat is great and dairy fine for people who can tolerate it. But I over did it. Cutting back brought my glucose back in control. I still think Mark's carb curve is right. But going even lower carb didn't work for my glucose.
Good luck on Primal.
