What a surprise when they told me how many Carbs they wanted me to have! 225 Carbs a day... Hmmm I do not think I will be anywhere near that! I think I will subscribe to the theory of Eating to my meter. Then to top it off she said "When you can exercise I will increase your Allowed Carbs"

They did say it looks like I have it under control so hopefully I can get this surgery soon! Well off for a walk

Ketones

I will be getting some ketone strips to make sure i am not going too low witht he Carbs. After Surgery I plan on increasing carbs slowly to the point I am not passing ketones but not spiking on BG. I am still in shock they said 225 cards a day... Even before I was Diagnosed (If you took away the Sports drinks) I did not eat that many Carbs.
