Hi all, (I’m a Type 2 - last two bloods which gave my diagnosis, middle May 52 and confirming diagnosis just a few weeks ago middle Aug of 72. Was 141kg at diagnosis, 1 month in I’m now 133kg. Metformin and MR metformin didn’t agree with me so now on 50 mg of xelevia once a day. Use freestyle Libra to help monitor bloods and as of today it’s estimating my HbA1c at 42 currently.) Right been a lurka since I joined a few weeks ago and been taking in plenty of info as I get my head round things! I broke my back parachuting in the Army so due to mobility issues/pain etc I am limited to what exercise I can do without causing me pain so for exercise I can only really do swimming which I have started to do twice a week. Now I don’t go mad and just do half hour doing 32 lenghs which equates to 1/2 a mile a session. Now I always take readings and start with levels at around 7-8mmols/L then test when I get out and test expecting levels to rise after reading all the comments on here but mine are not! Today for example, had a few carbs about an hour before swimming and took reading at 9.6mmol/L then after the swim I’m heading downwards to 3.8mmol/L and even lower last weeks session. So what’s going wrong, why are mine not going up like it seems everyone else’s do?
