Thanks to all replies, I've been away recovering from surgery.

My first A1c after being on LCHF for 6mo. was 5.8! I had two or three episodes and when I checked my BS was in the low 60's, during those times. I took some orange juice to fix these (wrong solution) but it worked fairly fast. I found that I had to reduce my daily injection of slow acting insulin (I was taking over 120u)as my weight and blood sugars started dropping, I had to adjust. By doing that, I stopped the problem. As you lose weight, you have to adjust your meds accordingly, and that can be tricky, I had to work with my doctor to do that safely. I now take 26u of insulin every night. I now weigh 250, and trying to get down to 200, the last 50 have been the hardest....I hope to be off of insulin when I hit that goal...

Good Luck, we are all different and it takes time and sometimes a doctor to help you work this all out. I am glad you have your doctor involved...
Congrats on BG control. Thanks for sharing, appears exactly what happened to me. I've lost a lot of weight as well, diet, high end activities. My insulin dose has always been 40 units. I struggle most with my Glip doses, during day time hours.

When you exercise heavily, that in itself is using up blood glucose, so if the Glip is causing more insulin into your bloodstream, it makes sense that BG will go lower than it would when you don't exercise.

You might want to test every 30 mins or so while exercising so if you notice BG dropping into the lower ranges you can eat something to keep it from going too low.

Or maybe you could talk to your doctor about making some changes in your meds. and perhaps using injected insulin for which you can control the dosing, rather than the Glip. which you cannot control but can only react to BG changes.
Thanks, will have discussion with primary. Yeah, appears my dosing is out of wack. I try to keep track using a journal, but other factors can affect BG levels as well. I notice certain prescription meds, causes fluctuations.

Yes, makes complete sense to me. I spoke with another physician, stating my primary should try 24 hour insulin opposed to 12,. Will discuss my next primary appt. Endo focuses on hormone levels, not concerned with diabetes at all.

INfinite….if my Endo, focused on my hormones and did not keep my Diabetes as a primary focus, I would find me another Endo! Diabetes will kill you and sometimes in not so pleasant ways! Granted hormones play a critical role also, but both must be a primary focus.....assuming I understand your comments...


Good Luck

On the BG front, it our bodies adapt to high levels where it feels comfortable. As we bring our levels low and keep them in a tight range for sometime, our bodied adapt to the "new normal". i am speaking based on my experience
Very true, but my blood labs in are check. What confuses me is body adopting to new normal. How long does it take ? I've been in normal range 3 going on 4 years. I'm convinced when my BG was high, nerve damage developed and not reversible, I have to live with the consequences of previous high BG.

Good Luck
Thanks. Think Endo is not to concerned with diabetes, cause my A1c always in normal range. Endo states something is overstimulating my nervous system, what ? No clue. Physicians working hard to figure out, what causes my body tremors. Endo believed Trazdone was causing the tremors, so I stopped taking a year ago, tremors still marches on. He tell's me no decongestants. I haven't taken any over a year. Now, allergy meds possibility. I sure hope they find out soon, so tired of feeling like a human vibrating massager, Rofl !
