    Could you let us know what meds you are taking and what is your normal fasting blood glucose level?

    Not sure what my fasting levels are it is so long since I have taken them as I feel I have my diabetes under control. The med I take are Metformin 500mg (2 a day one breakfast time & one dinner time) Glimepride 2mg morning & Candersartan Cilexetil 8mg morning (the Candersartan is for blood pressure.

    Would probably help to start testing again. I just find it all sneaks away out of control if I stop. But i am controlling with diet only.

    Very easy thing to do ... do you use a daily chart to remind you? It's the only thing works for me :)

    You could set an alarm on your phone? I do that for my evening dose as it’s one solitary pill so easy to forget. I remember the morning dose as I have other pills to take then

    I always used to forget my meds. Am on several per day at different times. I now have a dose box which helps alot.
    I would suggest you start testing again

    I think that is ok. Mine would be high teens to mid 20 ‘s if I forgot my meds

    Thanks for all the replys, yes I think I should resume testing.

    Cheers Danny.
