No no discernible ketosis. From past experience I would need to go much lower than 85gr carb. to be in ketosis.

I have a cgm and it backs up what my meter is saying. Night time has been a lovely flat line for quite a while and day time backs up the figures on day 1. I have been under my desired 7.9 except for an 8.3 and a 8.1 which is quite a bit better than I have been doing. Today is day 3 and it's the same story. I don't understand it but I love it. Went out and bought a large bag of chia seeds and some more coconut cream. Eventually I will need to have a day without it and see what happens.

Diabetes is a funny condition and YMMV is so true. If you keep the doctors opinions out, anything could be happening. A second honeymoon perhaps. Wish it lasts very long.

Could you be having excellent numbers because of where you have placed your infusion set? Sometimes, for me anyway, some areas of my body absorb the insulin better than other parts. Whatever the reason, enjoy the good numbers

Default Oh you are all going to laugh

and say "we told you so". It dawned on me like a light globe above my head that there are only 4 grams of carb in my chia/coconut cream breakfast... Naturally since I was previously consuming 11 or 21 on alternate days that lowered my intake for the day and gave my liver less to spew out...

It has been so successful that I have trimmed down my lunch from 21grams to around 11 or less... Same at dinner so now I am really seeing the full benefit of low carb and rapid insulin.

When my diag changed from 2 to LADA I had been having trouble tolerating the high fat so cut it back to a tolerable level and increased the carbs to around <80 per day.

Stomach still doesn't like too much animal fat ( but I have found that I can tolerate a lot (a real lot) of coconut oil. There is 42 grams of fat in my breakfast coconut cream alone. That chia/coconut porridge is so so good. I like vanilla or chocolate. I seem to be able to tolerate half a cup of berries, blueberries or raspberries if I bolus for them with no discernible spike, so colour me happy.

My 7 day blood sugar average from my meter is 6.1 and dropping daily. I also have lovely straight lines for the most part on my CGM. You know what? I am keenly looking forward to my next A1c and endo appointment in June!
