    So the hubby has tested positive and I'm waiting for my results back. my fasting blood glucose was 9.1 , they are usually 6.5-6.7.
    Is this typical ? I'm still sticking to keto. I do have symptoms, they aren't to severe. Luckily we had gone shopping the day before so plenty of food .

    Being ill can and doesraise BG levels. Sticking to keto and drinking plenty should help.
    Get well soon both of you.

    Luckily we have both been double jabbed, keto has made a huge difference to my health and to be honest even with covid I feel healthier than I have for a long time, plenty of fluids, paracetamol and keto food, shame we can't taste it unless it has tobasco on it:playful:
