      Can you tell me about what you mean by 'Are you aware that fasting readings are the last to fall and yet yours show non D?'
      1. Guzzler
        What I mean is that Fasting readings (those you take each morning on awakening) are not as quick to fall as pre/post prandial readings.
        An A1c of 105 signals a high level of insulin resistance and it is this IR that slows the improvement in fasting readings. This is why Metformin is prescribed, it is an aid to improving IR by way of the liver. It is also the first line medication for those with T2.

      Dear Guzzler, I do not know because of my Cognitive impairment with Type 1 and the many problems I have with that how to fill out this questionnaire that you have. Do I have to type it out? I will do anything to understand and fix this issue. I am looking for this questionnaire as I see one filled out.
      1. Guzzler
        Hello Australia. The questionaire is not mine, it is just for fun and you do not have to fill it in. Please look around the main forum for any advice, help and support you may need. There are many members who have Type 1 who can help you. Good Luck.
