Something strange just happened:
The only time I’ve tested positive on ketones was when I was diagnosed.
It is possible that there were cases I actually had some but couldn’t test simply because I didn’t had any stripes with me.
If my bg was high, it showed positive on sugar, not a big surprise.
No sugar but ketones!
My highest bg today was 163 (after lunch). I definitely drank enough. I did not exercise.
It was more a coincidence that I found out, I had no real reason for testing. One could say: the stripes looked lonely… or something like that.
Anyway, I looked up what could possibly have caused them. Nothing on any list fit my day - except for one thing I can’t be sure about: food. Or rather “wrong food”.
So, what is “wrong food”?
Is there a certain kind of food that can cause ketones?
Mainly ate vegetables, some cheese, 2 apples… actually nothing very different from what I ate the past 2 days a well (I’m testing my basal)… and didn’t have that before.
In case you wonder about the post lunch spike: For some reason, they put sugar in the salad - at least that’s what I think, so that wasn’t planned and corrected later. My bg never rises 60 points from a salad at home, this kind of ruined my testing.
Yes, I’m trying to figure the reason for my result.
But the question is a general one since it is an interesting/important topic and if it really is certain foods, I don’t want to let it happen too often.
