Default Sister Fasting BG 5.0. Would she benefit from eating LCHF?

My sister's fasting BG was 5.0. She said she suffers from 'low blood sugar' (shakiness when hungry) and craves carbs. I have read anything above 5.1 shows a pre-disposition for diabetes.

How would you interpret a number of 5.0? Would you say insulin resistance problem?

Thank you.

PS Her doctor said her blood sugar level was 'fine'.

Her blood sugar is fine. But everyone benefits from LCHF. It is not a way of eating for the sick, but a way of eating for better health.

I second skb's statement - everybody benefits from LCHF. I'd almost venture to say that if everybody ate LCHF, docs and drug companies would be out of business - it's that good for us.

Yes, although her fasting BG is fine, LCHF will keep anything bad from happening to your BG in the future.

Oops. I told my sister it's a 'little high' and she should keep an eye on her BG.

I should phone her and tell her not to panic

I did mention LCHF is good for everyone but I doubt she'll change to the LCHF diet without a good enough reason (for her).
