    Does the low fat yoghurt have more sugar in it? Because they'll cut the fat but try and add in sugar to compensate for taste but I'm sure you know this. The mince with peppers and veggies sounds delicious and I think I'll try that for dinner tonight.

    For tea that's up to you and what you put in your tea, these days I use full fat creamer and like One pack of sweetener.

    Those are quite high readings.

    I think the OP means the meal at night not a drink of tea...

    Breakfast, lunch and dinner?
    Breakfast, dinner and tea?
    Possibly afternoon tea if you are very posh/hungry? :)

    How long since you saw your medical team?
    "Better than 20" is going from very bad to pretty bad, and is at the level where it can be doing damage to your body.
    I would respectfully suggest that you need an urgent review of both your diet and current medication.
