    Have you had it confirmed that you are t2 Glenn? You don't have to ever feel hungry with low carb. Just eat the right food for you, and we are all different. Was the 7.8 long after eating? Are you using a blood glucose monitor a few times a day? Before you eat and 2 hours later. If the difference is more than 2 points have a look at what it is you've eaten.

    if you test your bloods 2 hours after you eat too you will get a much better idea of which foods work for you. Hope you get a diagnosis soon. Deb
