oddly high readings

Published by Resurgam in the blog Resurgam's blog. Views: 266

Yesterday I got a sudden increase in BG up to 10.7 mmol/l which only decreased to 8.9 at bedtime and today my fasting level is 8.7.
That is rather worrying, as I had been seeing numbers in the 7s and low 8s even after eating.
I am going to reduce carbs down to the lower levels I was on when I was first diagnosed, as I have been adding in more of what I used to be able to eat, little by little as I did way back when I was doing Atkins for ongoing weightloss.
I was losing weight on target for 2lb a week, but I should have dropped another pound by now, and I haven't.
Ah well - I will have to go out and exercise as soon as the weather gets a bit warmer and dryer.
