Some stabiity

Published by Resurgam in the blog Resurgam's blog. Views: 310

I seem to be able to eat an evening meal and have berries with yoghurt or cream and remain under 8 mmol/l - 7.9 today.
I cut down the veges if I have the berries, but I can have - for instance sweet pepper, mushrooms and some peas with my meat of the day on the days when I don't have berries.
I keep thinking about the blood test I had done yesterday, and I do hope that the results are good - thinking that I could have experimented less - but I did need to establish just what I could or could not eat - I will not be able to buy strips for the meter and test several times a day - though my results are very much more variable now than when I was losing weight. Perhaps I need to cut down until I am losing weight again. My BG levels are dropping, so IF I am becoming more responsive to insulin I am converting glucose to stored energy in the form of glycogen and fat.
I am going out every day and doing more walking, but I can't say that I am doing buch exercise. I will go and use the trampoline in the garden once the weather improves - it will probably need a scrub so it is not slippery before I can use it safely.
