Just timely Normal Diet and exercise. Once in a while sweets.Yes i am partial follower of LCHF but i need carb as i have to build muscle. what i learned from D life is that it is just a way to live a normal and healthy lifestyle. Just as Anup Sir says it is blessing in disguise :) and now i can feel it .

Even if sugar level is between 60 and 70 it will definitely cause shaky body and also as if we are drowning and have a strong feeling as if we are going to faint. So definitely below 60 is dangerous.


77 is not hypo.

Check error percentage of your readings from the manual.

Since how long you are med free.

If few days, this may be due to some of the medications you took days ago still stopping liver from adjusting (production of glycogen) the level.

Check again after some days and I am sure it will be OK.

I had a similar hypo problem (FBS 70) without medication for two days.

Also some years ago, I had another problem as well. That was when I was taking tablets and insulin combination. Tablets were over and took insulin injections only for few days. One morning I checked FBS was 80. Did not eat except a glass of water. Checked again after an hour and found 110 (another FBS, but 110). I checked with some and they informed that it might be the liver trying to adjust to make up for the physical activity.

Tablets disturb the balance, hence give sometime.
