I have been going hypo all day, horrible feeling. I needed to go out to the shops and so ate slices of melon until I felt safe enough to drive.
I thought that type 2s on Metformin did not get hypos - but I definitely am.
On a low carb diet the metabolism is supposed to change over to burning fat, called ketosis - but I think that eating so many carbs as I have been doing in the last approx. 18 months has made it far more difficult to get into that state. I am, therefore, 'running on empty' now that I have low carbed for over a week. I have depleted my store of glycogen, but the ketones are not being produced.
I will just have to keep trying to flick the switch and hope that it will happen eventually.
