I’ve been keto (again) for about 17 months. My blood sugar is still too high (waking up it’s likely to be 130s mg/dL) and I eat very little carbs. I do watch for carb creep, but I count NET carbs not total. NET carbs are 10 to 15. My blood sugar slowly rises throughout the morning until I eat and then it will actually lower. I have gotten a few CGM, but they are expensive since my insurance only pays a portion. My BS will dip below 100 two to three times at night, but by morning, it’s 120s and up. Just taking a shower raises my BS by 20 or more. My ketones are there but low (usually .3), and weight loss is incredibly slow (most months I don’t lose anything, some months I go back up a pound or two).
How long can the liver produce glucose? Indefinitely? (sure is feeling that way)
I’ve researched constantly trying to find ways to lower my blood sugar. I’ve even considered the ketone drinks for the last few days. Is there anything that would tell my liver there is no need for gluose?
