This morning I woke feeling strange. It is Day 12 AD - after diagnosis.
I drank some water, in case it was dehydration - that didn't help, so I ate five grapes - maybe it was low sugar. I think it might be, as I am feeling slightly less dizzy but still not right.
Oh - the symptoms just stepped down then - maybe I am being too severe in my low carbing after over a year of eating the cholesterol lowering stuff.
I am being tempted to go outside and pick the smallest apple on the tree to eat with my lunch. The tree is a golden delicious, which I would never buy, but grown organically and the apples left to ripen on the tree so they lose that bright green colour, they do live up to their name. I used to use them for baking as well as eating them as they hover right on my self imposed limit of 10 percent net carbs.
As I could eat up to 80 gm of carbs a day and still lose weight if I exercised, it was not a big deal, but it might be now, being AD and not just a matter of weight control. I think I should resist the apple and go ahead with my planned meal of eggs and a tomato, then see how I feel.
I wish I could test my blood to see what effect my low carbing is having - when my blood test was done at the clinic glucose levels were in the teens, but I did not even know that was bad, it was just a number.
