I’ve been doing keto for a little over a month. My ketones were steadily rising and glucose was dropping. My best reading was 1.3 ketones and 79 glucose. Last weekend I kicked myself out of keto and have been trying to get back into keto for the last 5 days. My ketones were rising very slowly until this morning when I tested 3.7 ketones and 107 glucose.
Here are the readings from this week. I always test in the morning before breakfast.
3/1 - Ketones .2 / glucose 97 - (the morning after the cheat)
3/2 - Ketones .4 / glucose 87
3/5 - Ketones .3 / glucose 77
3/6 - Ketones 3.7 / glucose 107
Although the pee strips aren’t registering any ketones at all. Should I be worried about this dramatic overnight increase in ketones? I don’t think my tester is broken, but maybe it is. I also want to add that I started menstruating on 3/5. Could that have something to do with it?
