Insulin has been lowered a lot due to low blood sugars

My sugars are now low enough that a decrease was needed. My slow acting Tresiba was cut from 50 to 25 and they lowered the sliding scale on my fast acting Novalog for meals. This morning I was117 and at lunch I was 115.

I am following a low carb diet called Ketogenic or Keto for short. It means 20 carbs or less per day. Most drs don’t like it, but it works for me and my drs, nurses and one of my dietician are ok with it.

Why should I eat the high carb American Diabetes Diet and take more meds. I just decreased them.

Less than 20 carbs can be hard to adjust to. It means going without a lot of my favorite foods, but my life is worth it.

      So true. I am in a support group that people get nasty when someone tells them something they can’t eat because of the carbs. It is a low carb support group. What did they expect?
