Glucose of 92 mg/dL on 7th day of water fast
I think I have asked this before but have yet to get an explanation that made sense to me.
On a previous day of this fast my glucose was 79 mg/dL which is not too bad, now it is 92 mg/dL.
I am grasping for explanations here.
Could I have sudden increase in the need for glucose? ( have sat in this chair ALL day - me bad)
Could not being outside and exercising be the reason? Perhaps my body is making all this glucose for some reason and exercise is the only way to use it up as perhaps glycogen storage may be shut down when I have a BHB of 5 or so?
Could my body be creating extra glucose and storing it because gluconeogenesis doesn't work efficiently for me and is not supplying my energy needs.?
Perhaps this is a normal thing for me during a fast. I don't recall this during earlier fasts.
Perhaps I need to record glucose more closely when fasting to look for patterns.
There a tons of plausible explanations. And I don't think the science in this area is real hard yet. I hear lots of conflicting thoughts.
If you have an idea please feel free to chime in.
Thanks in advance
