    Morning all 5.3 today which makes 5 of the last 14 over 5 so I conclude my body is out to raise my HbA1c just for a laugh. Oddly, I am sleeping longer and weight is lowest ever since age 16 but they are not problems or the primary target. Not complaining just very confused!

    5.3 this morning may be getting things back under control though still getting hyperglycemic readings in the day time.

    As @Goonergal said, this is a "normal" reaction to being in Ketosis, not the dangerous Ketoacidosis. I am actually sad that I had breakfast networking which would knock me back today (I OMAD 4 to 5 times a week). I detailed this as an aid memoir, as I normally have much lower ketones due my love of nuts, so it was interesting to see a walk at two thirds of my normal distance, followed by short but focused heavy weights session gave optimum results for me (on this occasion, so will have to repeat a few times to be sure). I need to research if a number above 0.5 (recognised as nutritional Ketosis (some say from 0.3)) has extra benefit, it does correlate with low basal insulin.
