I try to stay around 50g. Its difficult because in the past, if I adhere to a diet too low in carbs, it can backfire and make me feel worse after awhile.

There is such a thing as "carb flu" that happens when people reduce carbs. Its mainly an electrolyte imbalance. Usually when carbs are reduced, many times it is a reduction in processed foods and those processed foods contain quite a bit of sodium. Most of can get out of that by simply increasing our salt intake, and I would recommend a pink salt.

Think I've had this since 2003. Told I was Type 2 lean on 2/13/12.
