Health Update Week 2
UPDATE: Week 2 and 14 days on The Keto Diet
I feel very good, motivated, emotionally happy and successful. My digestion is good (no bloating) elimination OK but not great as I don’t think I’ve transitioned yet. Today was a great day with little insulin use and in total was 17units (Lantus+Humalog). Just so you know before keto my daily total insulin units was about 38-48 depending on carb intake. I’ve dropped my Lantus gradually and felt that 12u was a good place to retain for longer to keep balance. I will attempt to lower more when I feel ready.
I had several days this week where my glucose would just NOT lower. One day was my fault as I ordered a chicken and broccoli dish from a Thai restaurant and should’ve done SOS (sauce on side). I didn’t think the sugar in the meal was that high but it was > 11 units later. I might as well have had modern apizza. There is secret sugar in many Chinese food sauces as well as Thai.
Another evening I was taking some apple juice to get out of 50/60 range at bedtime and my glucose wouldn’t go up-when it finally did it skyrocketed and I wolk up in the 200’s. This stuff is just a-day-in-the life of a diabetic. Some days you can’t win. Some days, like today, are perfect.

My daily morning wakeup lows have reduced which I attribute to less Lantus.
I’m looking forward to this next week ahead! Have a great evening everyone!
