2 hr pp after fish and veggie dinner tonight was 65. Didn't feel hypo. Scary. Ate two cookies and apple will retest shortly.

Is it possible I need to add a few carbs back in to not have these lows?

If you're readings are stable there's nothing wrong with that 65. It's a normal reading.

60s, even upper 50s aren't bad bg's at all. There is no need to correct, especially if you don't feel hypo.

You don't think that's too low?

No, not at all. I regularly have fasting numbers in the low to mid 60's without any problems. Check out my bg chart from my signature, click on the "here". 65 is a dandy number.

Adam, quite frequently my BH checks her figures in the morning and gets a mid 60 without issues. Like a lot of lines drawn in diabetes, someone way back made a decision that they'd call 70 the floor of normal. We're all different and until you hit the low 50s, there's no real medical issue to worry over.

That said, coming down significantly below your normal can be very uncomfortable. For instance, back in 2010 when I was just getting my head round this game, I hit a 72 and I thought I was dying. Now? with an average running at 85 a number in the 70s just gets, "that's good".

In your own case, as you're still using medication you do need to review your dose as you move more and more into a low carbohydrate diet.

I might consider eating cheese or a bit of cold-cut for a 65, or a real meal if I haven't eaten for several hours -- but I would never "correct" it with carbs.
