Since I starting staying at under 20g of carbs a day my blood sugar is so much lower and under much better control.
I'm in the same boat as you, and agree completely. I also try to stay under 20g carbs per day. My A1c used to be 12.5. Since going ketogenic three years ago, it now averages 5.0-5.2, which puts me back in a normal range.

As for low carb products, I don't really have any good suggestions. I tend to not eat pre-packaged foods, and stick pretty much with fresh meat, eggs, and vegetables.

That is really great, I still have to get my A1c done. It was in the same range as yours last year(pre keto). I know it will be better, but I don't know where it will be. This is the first time I am looking forward to having it done.

I understand. You understand. Not everyone does. That was my point.
