    BG 7.4 this morning. Dinner - curried brinjals with beans. Dessert was coffee with mixed nuts. No medication.
    BG is a bit on the high side. Maybe I should take a Glucophage?

    Surprising that! The BGs are supposed to PEAK at 1 hour after a meal, and then come DOWN about two hours after the start of the meal. In your case, it appears to have happened the other way round! Would like to have some more readings from you, if you don't mind. It would be very illuminating and warranting closer look into it if readings repeated regularly. Thank you in anticipation.

    Absolutely, its also not just what we put in day before, but everyday for example...

    I have to say reading the links of various comments below I am astounded blown away, surprised, how people, are eating bread!! bread is a No No! boiled carrots, did you know Boiled Carrots are double Carbs than raw, I notice Milk in coffee, baby potatoes, lasagne Oh my goodness if one is trying to reverse Diabetes and numbers, these are not foods to include in daily eating, or, it may be those are on medication, and feel they can indulge in these foods perhaps? those who are NOT ON MEDICATION, and naturally keeping their levels down consistently with only intermittent fasting, low carb exercise, is not possible. and many other foods that really are not low carb menu planning, so I am not surprised if ones levels vary.

    Today my blood fasting test using the amazing wonderful Genteel lancing Device I bought here in Spain today, no pain, and you can test anywhere on the body, palms, knees, inner or outer arm, wherever, plus fingers if you wish, its a suction pen, no need to push for blood, its easy to use, painless and amazing, my levels were 5.3

    no medications whatsoever, in spain the cut off level is 100mg/dl the old level of UK, your UK levels i.e. 108mg/dl.

    Ate yesterday as it was fasting day only dinner evening 24 hours. i.e. night before last meal 8pm and next meal following day 8pm.

    No Breakfast only coffee black no milk or sugar
    Water, mint tea lunch
    Dinner
    Steamed salmon on bed of lemons, green beans. Handful walnuts and piece of cheddar cheese size matchbox.

    During the day lots of exercise.
    10 mins tread after breakfast
    20 min walk along the beach
    20 mins swimming
    10 min tread
    15 mins walk exercises
    10 min tread
    8,400 steps.

    If its not a fasting day, I normally would say for example have

    breakfast
    scrambled eggs in butter cream fraise and fresh asparagus
    coffee black no milk or sugar
    seed cracker home made with sunflower chia, pumpkin and sesame seeds

    lunch
    Mixed crunchy Salad mung beans, raw carrots cucumber, red, green peppers, olive oil and cider vinegar

    dinner
    Meat balls no breadcrumbs bound with egg only. Boiled Cauliflower, Broc
    handful walnuts and small piece cheddar cheese size matchbox

    Meals size of airline meals! NO SNACKING INBETWEEN

    THIS DAY FOR EXAMPLE WITHOUT THE INTERMITTANT FASTING OF SAY 18 HOURS I.E. NO BREAKFAST, OR THE 24 NO BREAKIE OR LUNCH, THE fasting levels are HIGHER!! SLIGHTLY.

    Just goes to show, INTERMITTANT FASTING really does benefit the numbers when fasting test taken without any
    element of doubt.

    All of you out there eating potatoes, bread, lasagne made with Pasta, don't complain if your numbers fasting 2 hr after eat or random any time after breakfast are high and you are in wonderment of that, its self affliction at the end of the day...

    Good luck

    Mallorca
