Diagnosis 6 days ago (type 2). Felt grim for a few days. Taking Metformin. Feeling much better today. Morning BS of 6.5, ate apple cinnamon porridge for breakfast, 2 hours later BS 15.1. I had a 5 mile gentle cycle. Before lunch BS 9.5, then lunch in parents garden (ham, egg, tomato, lettuce) then cycled home. BS now 6.5. It feels amazing to get the BS this low. I will avoid the porridge as it seems there were too many carbs in it for me atm. My Hb1c was 78. I want to go drug free ASAP, any thoughts on how many consistent normal BS readings before I reduce the Metformin? I really want to manage this with diet alone.
