"Anecdotally, many are reporting feeling fine with blood sugar readings in the 30's and 40's. No sweats. No shakes. No dizziness.

When in ketosis, with limited carbohydrates, the primary source of glucose in the blood will be from the liver, via gluconeogenesis, produced as needed by the body. Simply because some functions of the body do require glucose as the fuel.

But the blood apparently no longer needs higher concentrations of it?"


Your in an area that I know nothing about. In my experience when my loved ones blood
sugars were in the 45 to 65 range, they were approaching diabetic coma levels. They
responded to questions - but were obviously not themselves - and not right.

As far as other diet approach folks, I would suggest talking to their own physicians
- but responding to a very low blood sugar is a critical area of diabetes. Waiting until
the event occurs to figure out an "action plan" is not a good approach in any event.

My 2 cents.
