Have a question about comment made early about high protein intake leading to high blood sugar in morning. Why does a higher protein intake lead to high morning blood sugar?
Robb Wolf says
It can just bump folks out of ketosis.
C Kelsey says
@Scott…My husband has Type I Diabetes and we follow Dr. Richard K. Bernsteins Low Carb protocol…for him a matter of life or serious diabetic complications. It is a low to moderate amount of protein. The reason being that a certain percentage of the protein you eat is converted to glucose in your liver…a process called gluconeogenesis (glucose of a new origin). So as in my husband’s case – if he eats his prescribed 15 carbs for dinner (which he covers with insulin)but eats too much protein – his blood sugar will rise and as protein takes longer to digest and longer still to be converted…he will see that rise in the morning. Hope this helps.
