Durnit. Had to break my diet last night. Had a relatively good day yesterday. Mowed half my lawn, did well with the Keto Chow. But I woke up about 3:15AM this morning feeling really weird. Went downstairs and checked my blood sugar. It was 60! That’s not good. Made some Campbell’s Chicken Noodle soup and added some crushed saltine crackers. That got my blood sugar back up where it belonged. This morning it was 125, which is just fine with me.
Looks like I need to adjust the amount of Lantus insulin I’m taking. I’ve already adjusted my Novolog dosing (eliminated actually, because I’m getting virtually no carbs in my diet). The Lantus is my base dose and I’m going to cut it back to prevent going low at night like this again.
I did this kind of adjustment of my insulin doses when I was on the South Beach diet so I’m familiar with how it works.
