Day 3

Woke up at 6am with a blood sugar level of 14.3, even though I bolused for the food I  had to eat last night to stave off the ketones…..still feeling pretty rubbish but hey ho on to my next shake!

Anyone have any thoughts on why my sugars are running so high, after my shake this morning I’ve been running dangerously high as in 24-26!!!

Obviously not enjoying this experience at all and just hoping it gets better when I start introducing food again tomorrow.

Will post again at the end of the day to say how rest of the day goes………..

Day 2

Posthumous post to finish off what happened yesterday………

Not a good day at all – my sugars ran high for most of the day – is anyone else having similar experience? By 9pm lastnight my sugars had settled – well it was 10.5 but blood ketones were sitting at 0.9!!! I felt awful, head was pounding, little energy and I felt really sick, was scared to go to sleep with that level of ketones present so had to eat an apple and packet of crisps (being the only carb I had available at home!) to counteract the ketones plus another half litre of water to flush them out…..so, as you can imagine was up half the night peeing!!

 

 

Ketones!!!

Anyone had ketones whilst doing this?? Was sitting at 0.3 lastnight, back down to 0.2 this morning….feel ok, well sore head but think that’s lack of food!

Day 1 update….

So I’ve had 2 shakes (which don’t taste anywhere near as bad as I’d expected, must confess to using almond milk to make it though & added half a dozen small strawberries and some ice) and 1.5 litres of water – have to say I’m feeling pretty awful right now, my head is absolutely bustin and I’m really hungry 🙁

However, I’m determined to keep going with it so will just keep hoping this is a phase and I’ll start to feel the benefits soon…..

DAY 1

The time has finally come…..I’m going with Almond Milk to make my first shake, will update in a wee while to give my opinion……….have to say I’m not looking forward to it after reading what other peeps have to say about it! Ah well, here goes nothing………

Countdown is on…..

….slightly worried about starting this!

So, I’ve had the Almased bundle for around 3 weeks now and haven’t even opened it – what this has done for me is made me recognise how busy I am and therefore how little time I actually take out to focus on my health and diabetes (type 1). Having cleared the ‘decks’ for this weekend I plan to start the 14-day trial on Saturday…..having read some of your blogs it’s pretty obvious the downside is the taste, so just wondering what you all found to help with this and does anyone have any other advice before I begin at the weekend?? Have bought all my vitamins to supplement my diet as well 🙂
