    This is 3rd time on Dapagliflozin - GP put me back on it last December and was told to decrease my daily Insulin = so I am down to 35 units a day from 44 units.
    A month ago my HBA1C shot up from 56 to 68 and an extra Dapagliflozin was introduced to take every 3rd day as well as the daily dose.

    I don't like the smell or taste Vodka. Gin and Tonic is my tipple if I have a alcoholic drink.:happy:

    One why to think of it, Jardiance (and/or intermitant fasting) speeds up the removal of suger from your body, low carbs reduces how much suger is added to your body (as all carbs become suger when we eat them).
