I am newly diagnosed and on a low carb diet. It is now apparent that two hours after eating dhal my BG spikes to over 10 mmol/l (this has happened twice now) and I should avoid in future. There is so much evidence that suggests it should be the opposite, it seems bad luck that my body is behaving badly. My GP says I don't need to be testing my BG. I beg to differ, I am establishing what I can and can't eat. I am also trying to work out how much walking and cycling I can do without going hypo or having a migraine. I have had 5 hypo (under 4mmol/l) readings in the past 9 days. My GP says taking insulin (which I don't) is what causes hypos. My lowest reading was 3.2mmol/l so not desperately low. I'm still new to this condition so any thoughts on management etc are very welcome.
