      I'm shocked at how initial diagnosis is dealt with by GP

        She wanted to put me straight on metformin but I've asked her to bear with me for 3 months whilst I change my diet and exercise. My morning bloods usually aroubd 4.4. If I stick to LC my bloods stay around 5.5 2 hours after my meal. And if I add a slice if wholemeal it goes up to about 7.6. I know I'm still diabetic but I'm working on it like there is no tomorrow

        I'm testing everything now to see exactly how my body deals with different foods and it's really helping my understand. Thank you to everyone on here for all your help and guidance.

        I am facing something I can't understand, which is my BG from 6AM to 12PM never spikes, even if my diet is messy, and becomes under 120mg/dl 2 hours after breakfast (My initial thought is because I am active in work during that period). But things start to get messy in the afternoon and my BG spikes easily.
