How are you doing now?
Why doesn't the liver shut off?
My numbers are kinda crazy. Up and down.

I am betting on an intolerance/allergic reaction to something in the Atkins bars (which will take awhile to work out of your system).

But, keep an eye on yourself. If numbers do not stabilize and return to your normal, there is a chance you and the doctor need to have a talk.

Sympathies.

On vaycay I had an allergic reaction to something I ate, that lead to full body hives and some serious colon problems...and BG that leaps to the sky in response to eating/drinking anything.

Because it isn't getting the chemical signal that glucose isn't needed anymore. That's one of the things that are "broken" in diabetics. So we all have to find a way around it.

My way is to stay in ketosis so that, even if the liver doesn't shut off, it has less glycogen stores so can't dump very much glucose at any given time.

Others have other methods. But I think all the suggestions you've gotten could be valid. Hopefully, this will be a thing of the past if you are avoiding Atkins bars now.

Thank you all for your help and timely advice. My numbers are back to normal now.....between 88-135. Not bad, but I can and will do better. I'm learning. I'm reading from this whole site...there's a lot to know. Yesterday when I went to town, I was prepared. Cut up veggies, fried cheese (my fave), slim Jim's, cut up meat, a small container of whipped cream cheese and no sugar peanut butter. Yum, oh and beef/pork meatballs. Did I say yum? I love this WOE..I'm never hungry...love it. Thanks again everyone! I love all of your posts! ❤️❤️

Yes, thank God! No more Atkins bars for me. Live and learn, sometimes the hard way. ☺️

That's the way it works for us. Always trial and error. Never beat yourself up over a mistake. A mistake is just a lesson.

I'm always making mistakes, even after two and half years of LC eating. But the more mistakes I make the more I know and the more options I have. So it all works out.

I find that if I overeat carbs my liver will store the glucose and I might have a higher fasting BG for two or more days. It thinks it's being so helpful.

Yes, same here. And not only that, but I find that I have to reduce my carbs a little lower than normal for things to stabilize. I have to reduce portions of small tomatoes ("grape" tomatoes) and even nuts sometimes (especially cashews) just for a couple of days.

But eventually it does go down. And not only that, but the longer I've been eating LCHF, the quicker things get back to normal.
