    Hello, I've not felt like posting tbh as my levels are still quite high. I know being stressed with work isn't helping matters. I see you seem to be doing really well, well done, I appear to be going backwards

    Don't be despondent - you can do it! Don't ever give up on your mission. You got your HbA1c down from 95 to 50 in three months - that's worth celebrating. Maybe you should think about going to the doctors to have a chat - but you've probably done this already and I'm just an interfering old lady who knwos nothing!

    I had a wobbly patch a month or so back when my levels were raised but my blood test still came back good - apart from the cholesterol. My doctor said it was 'dangerously high' which is not what I wanted to hear! It's all do-able though - blood glucose and cholesterol can both be lowered. Just keep at it and never give up!

    You're not interfering. I've not been to see a doc yet I am due to get my feet checked etc on Monday so I was going to mention it then but I don't think I'm going to get much support due to getting my hba1c down to 50 in 3 months. They don't seem at all interested in me having another hba1c done yet, last one was in april. I won't ever give up. Im still lchf I just don't fully understand the high levels

    Theres something going on, I just don't know what!
    Good luck with your cholesterol. There's always something for us to worry about, isn't there?!

    Indeed there is. My last test was in arch and they said the next will be January - yours might be due in February. It's worth asking.

    That should read 'March' not arch!
