    I was diagnosed yesterday.

    HbA1c - 126 (from a sample from around 1 week ago)

    Yesterday, whilst discussing it with my wife, we took my blood glucose reading, it was 26

    Today after a healthy day + taking my first metformin tablet my morning reading was 22.6 and my afternoon was 16.9.

    I'm determined to keep going and the support from people on this forum yesterday was so VERY much appreciated.

    Lots to learn, lots to do, but I'm so very happy with this little victory!

    That's a great start. Good Luk with continuing. One of the great advantages of a meter is being able to see the results of your efforts- I find it really helps with motivation.

    Good luck!
