So in order to get some idea of what is going on overnight, last night I took a reading right before bed and also each time I woke up during the night until I got up .

Here were the results.

7:24 pm 1 hour after eating dinner 108
9 pm right be for going to bed 121
12:20 am 112
2:14 am 111
3:58 am 124
5:20 am 112

Why would it go up after dinner when I did not eat or drink anything? At least it was down to where I have usually seen it in the morning.

When you eat low carb or a slow digesting food, or if you have a slow digestion in general, you may see a small rise in blood glucose after the usual 2 hour window that most people talk about. This is from your body converting excess protein to glucose.

What did you eat for dinner? Seems the 9pm is like your 2hr pp. the [email protected] seems like it could be a reading anomaly. Do this a few more times. Also if you get a odd reading, test again to validate it.

I believe for dinner that night I had a piece of a Costco ham steak and 3 eggs fried in butter with water to drink.

What Daytona said - too much protein and some of the excess is getting converted to glucose?

I personally have difficulty keeping my protein consumption moderated. I just love meat!

So . . . Friday morning at 5:23 am 116
This morning at 5:45 am 119
7:26 am 131
9:16 am 1 hour after breakfast 103

I did not have anything to eat or drink since going to bed last night until 8 am this morning and my BG went up between 5:45 am and 7:26 am.

I think I know what the problem is.

Down towards the bottom of the article where he is talking about the liver. Makes sense. I was diagnosed with fatty liver and my ALT number is now back to normal after some time on LCHF. I imagine after all of that excess crap comes out of my liver, the numbers will settle down.

Maybe some intermittent fasting is in order . . .

Many people find IF to be helpful. I tried it for a while and it did certainly lower my BG overall and my fasting, and got me well into ketosis.

Since I have been eating LCHF I notice that more often than not I'm not hungry when it's "time" to eat -- especially lunch. I really notice that at work.
