For the last several months I had been very fortunate with my control. A1c was 6.0, following a ketogenic diet, losing weight, lots of energy, feeling like I finally had my T1 dialed in. My ISF and ICF were stable.

On 9/1 I had a 38 mg/dl hypo at 10:27 PM.I over-corrected and was high all the following day until I pulled a 31 mg/dl at 1:11 am.For the next 10 days I could not regain my control. Initially, I though my Apidra was defective so I threw away the pen and started a new one. My titration calculations were not working. Two weeks later I have regained my former control.

Can a severe hypo (or series of them) change your ISF and ICF?

Hi beechbeard, I don't know for sure, but I notice I often have near flat line for 1-2 days and then swing around a lot. Going really low or higher does put me out of control for a period it seems till I stabilize again. That's great your new diet is working so well :)
