    Oh god, I couldn't risk having one of those. All of my colleagues would be constantly plugging in and trying to 'diagnose' me.

    And this has been made even more appropriate today given that I have spent 9 hours at work trying to figure out why the software on the computer won't 'see' the dongle plugged into the diagnostic port. And apparently stress raises your BG?

    Well done for your difficult efforts. It’s like asking an alcoholic to have three drinks a day “ but they must be tiny! “ but we have to eat! Some things I think you may have misjudged... we are not all born identical, so that makes a difference beyond your control. If that guy counts calories, that form of dieting will fail because your metabolism follows the calories down and you stop loosing. We have been told reduce calories for a hundred years and obesity is still rising and so is diabetes. So what more proof does the medical profession need?
    Chin up you will get there one day “or die in the attempt! “ he he.
    Good luck from a new type2 food addict.
