Remember me? I posted last weekend about being newly diagnosed. I am really eating low carb adn exercising (lots of walking at the beach with little ones). My morning and night numbers have been in the 80's but this leaves me feeling off for lack of a better of word. After breakfast numbers are still high and lunch is a little lower. I can't figure out why I feel so weak and sweaty. I was gaggy after supper last night and had to have my husband bring me back to the condo to before we could ride go karts. Please tell me I will get this all straightened out! Diabetes and anxiety driving me crazy!!!!!!

Many times when we are first dx'd our bgs have been very high for a very long time, our bodies get used to the high numbers. As we change our food choices and get better numbers our body kind of revolts. People on the Atkins diet actually have a word for it . They call it the Atkins Flu. In those early weeks I would always carry some low carb snack with me and take a few bites when I felt that way. Also being on a diabetic diet doesn't mean going hungry. Make sure you eat every 3-4 hours to keep your metabolism buzzing along. I make up my own Trail mix and carry it with me everywhere. Also bars like Atkins, Quest or even the Kind Nut bars work well for me.
