I am usually under 7 mmol/l these days even after meals, but I have put on another pound - 3 altogether, so I thought I'd try fasting, as it seems to work for some people. I checked after eating lunchtime yesterday, and then fasted 24 hours. First reading 6.8, after 24 hours, 9.4. What?!! Then I ate a salad, standard green salad with ham and coleslaw, and two hours later 6.8. I am down a pound in weight, but I don't want to go so high. Perhaps I need to eat the same amount but as three meals not two - which I might try - but I am really puzzled by the increased number.
