And now - 5.6mmol/l

Published by Resurgam in the blog Resurgam's blog. Views: 317

I just took my BG and it is the lowest I have recorded - something seems to be happening to my metabolism after two months of low carbing.
I have seen my average levels of before and after my evening meal gradually drifting downwards, and not altering very much between the readings, but I am down by a whole number after being rather higher than anything I have seen unless testing a food for spiking.
The only thing I have changed is using double cream in my coffee and on the berries I eat - perhaps I have reached some level of fat consumption which has changed things, as I have been eating a few more carbs due to the falling BG levels.
I did hope to drop to this level once I had lost a bit more weight, with some hope of reversing diabetes eventually - I am just surprised at it happening so soon if that is what it is.
