Low blood sugar levels due to low carb diet for diabetes


I have had lows for the last couple of days. Obviously a medicine change is needed.

My very low carb/ketogenic diet is working. Already I am seeing a need to lower some of the insulin needs. Will talk to the dr if it keeps up. Luckily I have been home when it happens – night time and fasting.

Most days I eat less than 20 carbs, some meals are no carb therefore no insulin. So I am down to the low numbers on my fast acting insulin for meals and my Tresiba slow acting all day insulin also needs adjustment. Just not sure where I should make the adjustment.
