As I posted elsewhere, I am a Type 2 of long standing (16 years) who went on a LC diet in June and has so far shed 13kg. I was on 36 unites of Lantus and about ten units of Novorapid when I started and two metformin a day. Consultations with the diabetic nurse (who has not objected to my diet) brought this down to just 10 units of Lantus daily. BS stabilized at about 96/5.3 -- earlier it had been lower than that but I followed her advice. This morning BS was 98/5.4 when I woke up which was fine even a slither higher than I would have liked. I then had to go out for two hours and could not have breakfast, though I did nothing strenuous. On returning I felt a little dizzy, so just in case, I checked my bs and found to my complete surprise that it was at my lowest ever level 59/3.3 (I am using Accu Chek and the machine seems good to me.) My fairly frequent hypos in the past have all been higher than that and easier to sense I am used to hypos usually from Novorapid and have not had any since I am just on Lantus and I did not have the usual symptoms (stomach pangs, sweating). Two or three glucose tables and a little fruit dealt with it. This wasn't the sort of hit and run hypo I am used to and guard against. Obviously I shan't skip breakfast from now on. And it looks as if intermittent fasting might not be a good idea. Anyone got any other suggestions?
