As crankin told you. You might want to do a few more carbs pre-hike. Divers are encouraged to have BG around 150 when starting a dive and believe me you will lower it quickly underwater just like hiking.. When you are active (not sedentary diabetics) you can burn more energy quickly. I even dive with a glucose gel just in case I have a hypo, but D-2s are not as subject to them as D-1s.

Then again my goal is to stay <140 and anything lower then that makes me happy.

At 6' and a little over 180# and at most pre-diabetic you don't really need to go to the lengths that some of us have to to get where you want to be. Especially when we're talking about ketogenic diets.

I would rarely advise someone to eat carbs, but maybe you need to eat enough before a workout to keep feeling at your best. Your body obviously can handle them.
