    Hi 75Bedford. I'm interested in your idea of taking apple cider vinegar before bed. How much do you take?

    I seem to be permanently stuck at 6.5 now, with a rogue 5.6 thrown in last week. FBG has risen quite a bit over the last 12 months, it used to be in the 5's every day.

    I was just looking at my old contour xt meter at my FBG from 2014-2016 no 6's till Oct 16. It's frustrating as I'm so much stricter now.

    Sometimes I wonder if it would be better to just have gone keto straight off as every week I am adding more to the 'do not eat' list to stay where I started almost 6 years ago.
    Can you get diabetes burn out with prediabetes?

    As soon as I relax a teeny tiny bit my FBG goes to 6. whatever. But then I can keep it at that for most of the day so maybe it's not worth worrying about as long as the average is okay???
