Why Your “normal” Blood Sugar Isn’t Normal (part 2)

Hi, I just found this site and would like to participate. I will give my numbers, etc. First, my last A1c was 6.1, the doc said it was Pre-diabetes in January of 2014, OK, I get it that part, but what confuses me is that at home, on my glucometer, all my fastings were “Normal” however, back then, I had not checked after meals, so maybe they were the culprits. Now, I am checking all the time and driving myself crazy. In the morning sometimes fasting is 95 and other times 85, it varies day to day. Usually, after a low carb meal, it drops to the 80’s the first hour and lower the second. On some days, when I am naughty and eat wrong, my b/s sugar is still low, and on other days, I can eat the same thing, and it goes sky high, again, not consistent. Normally, however, since February, my fbs is 90, 1 hour after, 120, 2nd hour, back to 90, but, that changes as well. In February, of 2014, on the 5th, it was horrible. I think I had eaten Lasagne, well, before, my sugars did not change much, but that night, WHAM-O I started at 80 before the meal, I forgot to take it at the one and two hour mark, but did at the 3 hour mark, it was 175, then at four hours, down to 160, then at 5 hours, b Continue reading >>

    Hello everyone. I am on ketogenic diet for 2 months. I am not diabetic. My body mass index is 24.7 and my health is very good. I chose the ketogenic diet because I am convinced that this is the healthiest one. But for the last week or so I start by curiosity check my blood sugar and I am really surprised. Just let me tell you I am in full keto adaptation and my blood ketones is around 2.7 as average. My glucose when fasting in the morning is 6 to 6.1 mmnol/l (108 to 110 mg/dl). I read many articles about the insulin physiological resistance but I am little suspecious. I mean high blood sugar increase the risk of cardiovascular disease whether it comes from insulin resistance or physiological insuline resistance. I am little hesitating whether to continue with this diet or return back to regular one. Anyone can help me?

    If you are concerned about blood glucose, I suggest you see a doctor for an A1C test (levels over 3 months) which is far more accurate than the fasting number.
    At the same time, my experience may help you deal with this. I am not diabetic, but my fasting numbers are typically high (low 90s--lab limit is 120), but my A1c is typically about 5.2, well within normal.
    I've read that a ketogentic diet will produce higher fasting numbers, and my endo says that this is true--which is why he goes by my A1c. I'm hypothyroid, which is why I get regular blood tests, and since all my siblings are Type 2 diabetics, my endo keeps his eye on my BG.

    Thx Leo for reply. But high glucose increase the risk of cardiovascular disease whether your A1c is normal or not.

How The Ketogenic Diet Weakens Cancer Cells

Chronic disease continues to ravage our world today despite tremendous advances in health care. Therapeutic approaches to treating this wide-range suffering cannot be met by technological growth in pharmacology, genetic therapy, or surgery. It should be obvious that the real solution for treating cancer and disease is not found in a man-made pill but rather is found in regulating the metabolic functions within our bodies. Western cultures today enjoy a diet rich in the delicacies that our ancestors did not consume on a regular basis such as grain, sugar, and starch. Research continues to show that sugar is the main source of fuel which feeds cancer and contributes to an inflammatory environment. Sugar essentially increases the risk for cancer and disease. How the Ketogenic Diet Works What is the Ketogenic Diet? The Eskimos and Maasai group are cultures we often look at to learn how their scant consumption of carbohydrates sustained their bodies through harsh weather conditions. It turns out that their low carb diet switched their metabolism to burn fat instead of sugar or glucose. This created a metabolic state known as ketosis, a process in which the body burns ketones to make ene Continue reading >>

    I went to a diabetes support group meeting yesterday and I was told by the dietician that 100 carbs. a day was as low as you should go, but she said you should not even go that low. I think you have to try different amounts and find out what works for you. You also have to take into consideration your stress level, amount of sleep, time between your meals, exercise, etc. that can effect your bs numbers. Some days I'll eat the same thing for a meal, but my numbers are completely different. My morning readings are always more than my night readings, by 30 sometimes!

  2. TEACHER1220

    Thanks for this thread, I have read most of it and I have conformation if what I have found. My dietician said to eat 130-150 gr. carbs everyday. I can't eat that much or my bs is way too high. I've been shooting for 60-80 per day and my bs has been much lower. I eat limited carb foods, mostly vegetables. Ive been a diabetic 20 years and I feel like I'm finally getting the advice I need to live (but it's not coming from my endocrinologist or dietician). My question is what is the lowest carbs you should eat each day?

    I looked around here and in the web, but could not find a clear answer. So the situation is: I am in ketosis around 6 month and started to get higher blood sugar 2 month ago. Before I was around 70 - 90. Now I am around 100 to 120, no matter when I meassure. Blood-Ketone level is always around 0.4 to 1.2. My macros are ok and I felt good most of the time. The last 2 weeks though I started to feel a bit down so I started to worry a bit and read into the high BG thing I found 2 articles which leaves a lot of questions unanswered.
    article1!
    article2!
    They are a bit old, so there might be more information by now? I am really worried that I have to stop keto just because of this.... can anyone help by making a holding argument? Can I just ignore this? Thanks in advance.

    Given your BHB of .4 to 1.2, I think it's more likely you still need to limit carbs and/or protein as there's likely too much glucose still in play. Check your postprandial glucose 1, 2, and 3 hours after meals and see if you spike above 120. If so, your meal is still too high in carbs and/or protein when coupled with your existing insulin response.
    When you get your next blood test, be sure to ask for "Fasting Insulin" too. (This should actually be standard in ALL metabolic panels, but isn't.)
    I'm about 17 months into the diet and I've observed my fasting blood glucose bottom out at 70s to start, then slowly increase to 90s (or even low 100s about 15% of the time), yet my blood BHB is typically between 1.8-3.8. I'm confident this is glucose sparing as my fasting insulin tests are now at the bottom of their range (3.3 with reference range 2.6-24.9) AND I check my postprandial glucose which rarely climbs above 120.
    To add to /u/Solol123's point -- protein is tricky because I find if I have too much within a single meal (such as large steak), it will bring up my glucose postprandial and even have a lasting margin into the next morning with higher glucose and lower BHB.

  3. sk8wh33ler

    thanks for the advice. I will try to control protein even more and will stay with mostly 77g a day.
