Ketosis and Insulin Levels – Status 2016-08-14

Noticed this morning that my body was out of ketosis. My detection method is the metallic taste in my mouth when I am in ketosis. Now, 2 hours later I am back in Ketosis. My pump delivers .5 U/hr between 4 AM and 12 PM. The rest of the time I am pumping .25 U/hr.

I am not adding any bolus today so that I can try to understand the effects. I took a Metformin 850 mg when I got up so part of the following effect may be from the Metformin. Numbers were up early on but I am watching the numbers over the day.

  • 7:20 – 130
  • 8:20 – 154
  • 9:20 – 130
  • 10:20 – 116
  • 11:20 – 118
  • 12:30 – 127 (physically active – working in the kitchen)
  • 1:20 – 118
  • 2:20 – 108
  • 3:20 – 111
  • 5:40 – 113

I have gotten pretty much the same response when I used Insulin so why use Insulin?
