Lower BG with higher carbs and sugar?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

 

I have had to be on the road and have been struggling to keep the HFLC diet.  I have been noticing a pattern.  It would appear that when I eat the carbs and sugar my BG is actually lower than when I eat almost no carbs and sugar.  What could possibly causing this?  I had a half slice of pizza, a slice of pumpkin pie and a salad and two hours later my BG was 106.  It is a,most never that low PP.  

 

Thoughts and ideas?

Some diabetics actually do better with more carbs than a lc/hf diet allows.

I will spike after a high fat meal more than a higher carb meal.

In early diabetics it is usually caused by reactive hypoglycemia. You eat a ton of carbs and your pancreas must overwork to make insulin. So you actually go lower. If you did this all the time you would see loss of pancreatic function quickly.
