    how long have you been eating lower carb?

    I know I used to experience hypoglycemia but after about a month of eating low carb my low blood sugars went away. If I start eating higher carb again for a few days I'll start getting low blood sugars again and I feel like crap when my bs dips too low. But, for some people low bs is just what their normal is. How do you feel when you bs is that low? Do you feel weak and shaky at all or do you feel normal?

    All those numbers seem pretty fine for someone who is low carb.

    I had to do some converting But as a nurse ... if you were my patient ... I'd feed you.

    It took me a long time (months) to feel like I could go very long without eating. I still span the hours with cream in my coffee.

    I don't have any scientific evidence to support this but I "think" that perhaps hypoglycemics need to work harder to get to that nice level blood sugar thing. It's all hormonal right? So maybe our systems are just touchy that way? Touchy glycemic response to stressors?

    I don't mind feeding myself more often and I don't see any long fasts in my future. So far, I'm OK and who knows how I'll develope. It is kinda tempting to get a glucose meter.
