I have heard it suggested that you should reduce your carb intake by a third initially and see how your BG levels go for a couple of weeks at least and then reduce by a third of that reduced amount for another few weeks and so on. It is not by any means written in stone that you will cause damage to your eyes by going the whole hog keto straight away but it does increase the risk so worth taking it steady and bringing things down slowly.Thanks for your post Barbara - eek - I didn't know you shouldn't reduce the carbs too quickly - I will read up on some stuff. Do you have any idea what a 'safe' amount of carbs would be to reduce to? I appreciate it will just be a 'guestimate' but anything is a big help.
