    Thank you so much. I do feel a bit better this week. I think it has taken me a while for the 'penny to drop' that my body doesn't cope with carbs, I thought there was something else wrong as I was eating 'healthily' as per the diabetic nurse. I've changed how I take the metformin. I had originally been on 500mgs morn and night, then it increased to 1000mgs twice a day, but the nausea was horrid. So I initially dropped it to 500mgs 3 times a day, which got rid of the nausea. I'm now about to try 1000mg in the morn and take 500mg lunch and eve and see if that works. I'm also wondering if I should have my main meal at lunch time? I have tried a low carb apricot cake, I put 2 dried apricots chopped and dunked in brandy into it. It gave enough flavour, I actually quite enjoyed it, I have to cut the outside off though, too eggy. It's like re learning what to eat. I can have strawberries and clotted cream but not a banana. Haha
