    6.0 last night
    5.8 this morning

    Last night I actually had a slightly heavier dinner than usual (as i had a very light lunch than usual) but glad it didn’t push up the numbers - Dhalia (as we call it in India, which is broken whole wheat) with some Sambhar (South Indian dish - a sour & spicy lentil & vegetable stew i guess is the way to describe in English )....

    Thursday May 30
    FBG at 0710 was 5.1, food yesterday was;

    Breakfast: blueberries honey nut cheerios w/2% milk, black tea, 500 mg metformin
    Lunch: black tea
    Dinner: restaurant Chinese takeout, veggie and bean sprout stir fry plus snap pea/shrimp stir fry, chunk of baker's semi-sweet chocolate, glass of saki, black tea, 500 mg metformin
    Snack: 3 hefty glasses of Smirnoff Caesers, puffed pork rinds (cracklings)

    Temp here is 20C at 0730, skies still hazy from forest fires up north. Too many carbs in those Caesers, will have to stick to homemade versions, still researching Chrysler woes, having a very hard time finding any wiring diagrams for this thing, may have to spend and purchase factory software...

    Venkat Kommi,what type of papad do you eat? Do you make your own? And paneer is a simple soft white cheese,correct?Ive made that at home here in USA,maybe similar to Mexican Queso Blanco? Good stuff,yum!

    I just dont understand the differences between your afternoon BG and the rise in the morning,is that the Dawn Phenomenon folks talk about?

    I buy plain Papad not cooked one and leave it in Microwave for one minute without any oil then I eat with soft cheese.

    Paneer is more like cottage cheese or Halloumi cheese but not same as soft cheese.

    You can see papad and Paneer curry attached image.
    Or below link

    Yes Dawn effect is causing my high blood sugars in morning as soon as i eat it goes down. I checked that before.

    As every one says Morning sugars will come down at last. So hoping one day i will see low morning sugars.

    Since one year i stopped all my medication i lost 17Kgs weight. Now my current weight is 60kg.

    Statins are my worst medication i used over 10 years and diabetic since 12 years.

    Trying to heal fatty liver and dawn effect slowly.
