Low blood sugar levels due to low carb diet for diabetes

Advocate for Mental and Invisible Illnesses

I have had lows for the last couple of days. Obviously a medicine change is needed.

My very low carb/ketogenic diet is working. Already I am seeing a need to lower some of the insulin needs. Will talk to the dr if it keeps up. Luckily I have been home when it happens – night time and fasting.

Most days I eat less than 20 carbs, some meals are no carb therefore no insulin. So I am down to the low numbers on my fast acting insulin for meals and my Tresiba slow acting all day insulin also needs adjustment. Just not sure where I should make the adjustment.

Just thought you should know… All About The Purple Almond Resource Page

The Purple Almond

Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a great day. During my studies at Hawthorn University, I often come across links to very useful nutrition resources, either through my own research or through assignments from the University. When I started this blog, I designed a page specifically dedicated to nutrition websites and resources. I add to this page on occasion.  Today, in the course of studying, I came across several more sites, which I just added to the page. I’m not sure how many of you are aware of the page, so I decided to bring it to your attention.

I only allow high quality sites on this page. I have set very high standards as to what sites are added to this page. To give you an example as to my standards, Beachbody.com approached me a few months ago with a request for their blog to be added…

What People Don’t Tell You About Motherhood

Essential Living with Dakota

I was chosen as a contributing writer for Thirty on Tap! I’m so excited for this incredible opportunity! First up: What People Don’t Tell You About Motherhood:

My whole life all I wanted to do was grow up, find a good paying job, marry my soulmate and become a mama. The catch? There’s a lot of things they don’t teach you about in high school, and at the forefront is what motherhood is really like.
