89 BG All of a Sudden
So Iíve been on my LCHF diet now for a week plus 1000 mg of Metformin. Fasting BG seems to hover around 130. After eating lunch, I suddenly began feeling warm and tingly all over. Just didnít feel ďnormalĒ to me. Took a reading and it was 89! So now Iím laying down and will retest in an hour or so. I guess the best thing is over the years Iíve learned to listen to my body and I kinda know when something is slightly off kilter.

Just retested 1 1/2 hours after itís 81. Weíll see acouple hours after supper.

Have you had BG in the 80s before? Sometimes when BG drops below what the body is used to, you get these feelings. Eating supper should bring BG up and you'll probably feel better. As your body gets used to lower BG levels it won't react like that anymore.

89 and 81 are perfect BG levels

When I get a reading that I am reacting to I eat some hard cheese or some other low carb high fat food...then it kicks my BS up a bit within a half hour or so...but not to high...

If you have just started eating keto and stopped eating a lot of packaged/prepared foods, you may need to increase your sodium intake, a lot of salt was removed from your diet that was in most of those foods. I'd recommend a sea salt, if you need the iodine, supplement it separately.

I agree with mbuster above! I had forgotten, but when I started on LCHF within a short period of time I got 'faint', dizzy, and a bit weak. I recall someone on this website suggested more water and salt intake. I tried that and I quickly got better...

Later on I about 6 months later, I noticed my blood pressure was running pretty low, as did my blood sugars. We figured out I had to reduce my medications for blood pressure and diabetes as I had lost lots of weight and I did not need all those meds....

Good Luck
