    About four years ago during my annual MOT at the doctors, it was pointed out to me that my fasting blood glucose was 6.1 mmol/L and that I was classed as pre-diabetique. The doctor didn't seem unduly concerned and just recommended that I lose a few kilos. ****, I'd been trying to lose weight for the last thirty years , with absolutely no success. But this was a real wake-up for me and luckily I stumbled on this site. I signed up for the Low Carb thing and within six months had lost 25 kilos.
    But ! although my diet is low carb my fasting blood glucose is still hovering around 6.0 mmol/L.... according to my Codefree meter. I'm not too concerned because comparing results from the Laboratoire and my Codefree seem to indicate that my Codefree is consistently reading 0.7 mmol/L higher which means that my actual fasting blood glucose is around 5.3mmol/L...... my wife's is 4.8 on her Codefree ! Besom !
    For experimental purposes I'll take your advice and bring forward my main meal. This will be pretty easy to do because I lost my wife in February and live alone. She's not dead or run off or anything like that, I mean I've misplaced her. I left her in Glasgow to look after her ailing sister and came home to France expecting her to be home within a few weeks.
    Then the Plague struck. And she's been trapped in Glasgow ever since....
