I hope that you have understood the real meaning of LCHF diet, that been said you also have to restrict the quantity of the food intake, for example besan is good for diabetics but that does not mean you can have 10 chillas made from besan. I hope you get the point.

If you are really following LCHF diet and also medicines then there is no reason your BS numbers should be high.



It's a normal phenomenon that both readings are different. Glucomter checks capillary blood sugar - before utilization by the tissues and lab reports, venous blood - after glucose is utilized by the tissues. Usually glucometer readings are higher than lab upto 20 or more. Also the sugar readings taken at two different times also differ very much. Glucose readings are not static.



1. Reduce carbs in your diet.. eat small portions, frequently.

2. Remain active through the day. Take 10min brisk walk after every major meal.

3. Go for 30min walk once in the day. Morning brisk walk for 30min does lot of good.

An intelligent combination of diet and exercise will go a long way... all the best!
