    Why would your HbA1c be tested in A&E ??

    Makes little sense, and if it really was 105 you have a serious condition of T2D

    Yes I’m very confused. But I’m working hard to reverse this condition. And change my life

    Well, last night I carried on not eating, but had 5 chipped butternut squash off hubby's plate to see what happens, as I have never eaten that before, it was a bit of a test. Tested 90 mins later and my bloods were 4.9 that was around 8pm.. Have got chicken with cabbage tonight. I am craving white cabbage of late lol

    I usually find that if I eat some cheese my levels go lower

    I agree with BulkBiker because somewhere on Dr Fung’s site he mentioned that if your glucose goes up when fasting, it had to have come from somewhere. Your body had it stored away and is now releasing it. Basically, it is not a bad thing.

    I also had to laugh about eating cheese to decrease your glucose. For me, a nice glass of red wine really decreases my glucose response to dinner. Yes, I know it goofs up the metabolism, but I am always surprised how steady my glucose is with that glass (or two) of red wine when I go out for dinner. Wine vs cheese vs wine vs cheese...... Such difficult choices. LOL

    Meant to say...If I eat an apple with cheese, I do not get a spike, but without cheese, a spike but not bad
