    I just recently had a full blood profile done, and it states that my glucose is 90, with the normal range being 75-110mg/dl. My question is this: for 8 weeks prior to this I had been adhering to a very strict keto diet, with my only carbs coming from 1 serving of macadamia nuts and 1 cup of cottage cheese (15 or so carbs daily) with a carb-up every Saturday until 4pm or so. Now, the blood test was given on a Friday, and in addition I had been fasting since 6pm the preceding evening, in which I only had 1 cup of cottage cheese with 1tbsp. of flax oil. So, what exactly is this telling me? Is my blood glucose unusually high for someone that has followed a moderate-high protein intake and high fat intake? Or does this mean something entirely different? The reason that I ask is when I had it tested roughly a year ago I was eating close to 40/30/30-like, and my glucose was 79. Can someone please explain?

I Need Help. Glucose Levels On Ketosis

I am a 33 year old woman diagnosed with Policystic Ovarie Syndrome, which among other things makes me insensitive to my own insulin (pre-diabetic) I have been doing Keto for 3 weeks and my kestostix haven't turned to the lightest shade of pink. I haven't lost any fat. I read an article by Jon Deprospo in which he says that if you are in Ketosis, your blood glucose level should be between 50-60 mg/dl. I checked with my glucometer and found out that my glucose was 86mg/dl. My doctor advised me to stay on Keto, not on CKD (no refeeds) since I am hiperinsulinic. My question is if you are in ketosis, what should your glucose level be?. PD: I wanted to mention that I train with weights everyday (for amost 1 1/2 month) and do 20 minutes cardio everyday. Can you post your diet? Sometimes there are small things that can keep you out of ketosis, and it's a lot easier to learn from other people's experience. My bodyweight is 136 pounds 20%body fat. I started taking 1496 calories intake. 30% protein 10% Carbs 60% Fat. Divided in 5 mini meals / day. I had no progress, so I lowered my calories to 1300/day with the same ratios. Didn't work either. Lowered calories to 1000 and nothing. Last night Continue reading >>

    Just received a blood glucose meter! What are the proper protocols for testing fasted blood sugar and what range is considered to be healthy? Additonally, what is the best method for using this meter to test my reaction to artificial sweeteners, which may be the culprits of my current 7 week stall?

    In general a fasting value of 3.9 - 5.5 mmol/l (70-100 mg/dl) is a normal result.
    Officially the ADA recommends for someone with diabetes: 4.5–7.2 mmol/L (80–130 mg/dl )
    2 hours after a meal a normal result is less than 7.8 mmol/L (140 mg/dl).
    For a diabetic managed with drugs by the ADA the expected values are less than 10.0 mmol/L (180 mg/dl).
    I vehemently disagree with the ADA on both the fasting and the pp numbers. We have a right to normal glucose and on a keto diet we can have just that.
    So glucose jumps around like a cat on a hot tin roof and is affected by a lot of things. But there are specific times to test that are less subject to external influence.
    You can test first thing in the morning. That will not be affected by food, and that value day to day will tell you how your overall glucose control is going. If you do that and then try an intervention and your numbers start going a little lower, then the intervention is improving your glucose control. However it's worth noting that that morning fasted test is still subject to influence - for example @tdseest found that whenever he had a nightmare that his glucose was significantly elevated ... so you really need to smooth other the day to day changes and look at the long term trend.
    Another common place to test is 2 hours AFTER eating. That post-prandial (after digesting) measurement should return to normal ranges 90-100 mg/dl in normal people within 2 hours of eating a meal, in a type 2 diabetic it could stay high for 4-5 hours.

In this video I discuss what is blood sugar level, and what causes high and low blood sugar levels. We also look at insulin's role in blood sugar levels, and some of the risk factors for developing type 2 diabetes. Transcript (partial) In this video we are going to discuss what blood sugar or blood glucose is, and why it is important. Blood sugar level is the amount of glucose(sugar) present in the blood. Our body gets glucose from some of the foods we eat. After the digestive process, the liver releases glucose into the bloodstream, sending it to cells to be used as energy. As glucose is released into the bloodstream, blood sugar levels rise. This triggers the pancreas to release the hormone insulin, which tells the cells to open up and let the glucose in, which lowers blood sugar levels. Excess glucose is stored as glycogen in the muscles and liver. This process happens many times throughout the day after we eat. A normal fasting (no food for 8 hours) blood sugar level is between 70 and 99mg/dl, and a normal level two hours after eating is less than 140mg/dl. So, why is this important? Well, there are 3 main reasons we need to be aware of our blood sugar level. The 1st reason is

Blood Glucose Level While In Ketosis

Diabetes Forum The Global Diabetes Community Find support, ask questions and share your experiences. Join the community New to this so apologies if there is a more dedicated thread. I do not have diabetes, but I am on a ketogenic diet as I am quite obese and this seems to be a good way of life for me. I had my cholesterol and blood glucose levels checked today after being on a LCHF diet for 3 months. Cholesterol was 4.99mmol and glucose level was 1.3mmol. From my reading, 1.3mmol is very low on a "normal diet", and indicates hypoglycemia, but is this to be expected on a keto diet? A bit in the woods and just want to ensure I am not doing something harmful. 1.3mmol is very low, I would suggest you get that checked out - even on LC your liver should ensure you don't go that low, assuming of course you are getting appropriate nutrition to ensure that your liver can produce glucose - get it checked. 1.3mmol is an extremely low glucose level. That surprises me as you'd be feeling very rough at that level. I would confirm that those figures are correct. Glucose at 1.3 mmol/l is usually a severe hypo needing urgent treatment. I think most people would be in a coma, or dead. If they let y Continue reading >>

    So I was told that you need to be in the range of 70-80 for glucose and 1.5-3.0 to be in Ketosis and be fat adapted. So what is the difference between fat adapted or being in ketosis the whole time.
    My numbers would rarely get in the 70-80's range but mainly would like to hang out around 85-94 Rane with a Keytone reading of 1.5 and greater. Although I was told on this Facebook group that I'm not fat adapted and perhaps not in Ketosis?
    Also my glucose readings were always higher in the mornings with a few exceptions of being in the high 70's.
    Can anyone shed light on this, I feel that the keto community has different optimal ranges for what they think is correct?

    Thanks in advance.

    OK - "in ketosis" simply means your liver is producing ketones from partially metabolised fat. If you are more than 0.5 on your ketone meter, you are in ketosis. That will happen with about 48 hours of fasting or a few days of very low carb intake. It's an ephemeral state - eat more carbs, you'll make less ketones - eat less carbs, you'll make more ketones.
    Fat -adapted means that all the enzymes to do with fat metabolism have ramped up, so you are really good at burning fat. Also, your muscles become less keen to take up glucose because they want to leave it for the brain. Some people who low carb find their fasting glucose actually rises after a few months because of this effect.
    As to glucose levels - do you have diabetes? A normal fasting glucose is between 70 and 110, with 70-90 being preferred. I've seen keto people saying that blood glucose above 110 will prevent you being in ketosis. Well, according to my meters, that's a pile of poo, because I've seen 2+ on my ketone meter and 7 (126) on my glucose meter at the same time. But I have diabetes. Maybe in people without diabetes, a blood glucose above 110 only happens if they've eaten a load of carbs, and it's that which prevents ketosis rather than their glucose level per se.
    What enables ketosis is low carb intake. What prevents it is eating more carbs.... and maybe too much protein. More on the difference here:

    Being Fat Adapted Versus "In Ketosis" (Pt.1/3)
    “I got kicked out of ketosis.” If I never hear or read those six words, in that order, ever again, I’ll be one happy individual. ...

    Also be aware that, once you are fully fat adapted, your ketone levels may well fall. Richard and Carl have covered this on the podcast - you become more efficient at making enough ketones for your needs, but not too many. I'd been keto about 3 months when I got my ketone meter - my readings were always over 1.5, usually over 2. Another 4 months on, I rarely get above 1 unless I fast for 24 hours - my usual 20-30g carbs per day and 16/8 or 18/6 IF usually has me between 0.3 and 1. Just tested now - after 12+ hour fast, a keto day yesterday and 1 hour run this morning - BG 6.7 (120), ketones 0.5. BG was 6.1 (110) when I got up - exercise can raise it in the short term, but reduces it long term.

    Nope no diabetes on my end, I'm pretty active my events are bodybuilding and powerlifting, I have about 8% bf weighing around 155-160lbs, 39 years of age.
    This is what I read in today fasted.
    85 glucose and 3.3 Keytones this morning.

    Wondering what is the norm for being in ketosis and also fat adapted. I think what I've heard is that you have to be in a sweet spot of 70-80 glucose and 1.5-3.0 Keytones in order to be fat adapted.
