Default blood glucose up

My first bg this morning was 146. I had 2 eggs scrambled in butter and black coffee for breakfast. 1 hr pp it was 126. Not unusual as I'm still working on this. However 4 hrs pp it was 143! What on earth could make it go up so much? Usually as I get further from my last meal my bg goes down like into the 90s. Any clues?

I suspect four hours was a little longer than your liver wanted to wait this time. It decided you were about to starve, so it accessed its stores of glycogen, converted those to glucose, and surreptitiously drizzled some into your bloodstream. That's the usual explanation for such spikes when we haven't eaten anything recently. It's called a liver dump, and the longer you stay on LCHF, the smaller they will be, but so far none of us have been totally successful in outfoxing our livers!

Thank you Shanny. It had me totally befuddled as I wasn't feeling hungry. I rarely eat snacks during the day but get a really mean case of the munchies a couple of hours after dinner. So high fat snacks would be in order or do I have that wrong?

A couple of macadamia nuts would do the trick. It is said that the liver has a mind of its own and is the usual suspect in playing spoilsport in the BG predictability game. However, if you're willing to wait out these dumps for a few days & if you are strictly on LCHF, the dumps should also weaken & subside.
