Go ketones!

We're checking Kalle's 'ketones' every evening now. The body starts producing ketones as soon as there are only very few carbohydrates to burn and fat becomes the only source of energy. The ketones are a sign that you're 'in ketosis'. The ketone level has to be between 3 and 4. Tonight it has been 2,8! That's pretty cool 'cause it means that Kalle is moving into the good direction! Yesterday it was only 0,8...so he took a big jump.
We need to control Kalle's blood sugar twice a day. Very important. It's lower when you're on the diet. But if it's too low it can be dangerous. The body needs some sugar to function. Next check: in the morning.

Good night, Sonja
