Hello and welcome
Your concern is appreciated
Its really difficult to maitain blood sugar level in that range because its dynamic play between different variables. If you have abandoned sugar and carb altogether but you are stil eating and the energy driven by the body from the other food you are having body can produce glucose from that by the process called gluconeogenesis so you can limit your food intake that can be done by you.
