    Well first 3 months full result.
    Hba1c - 44
    Serum Cholesterol - 4.3
    Trigl - 0.6
    HDL - 1.29
    Chol ratio 3.3

    Still not testing, still having 'the evil four' - but in moderation (of course). Well pleased with that. PN and 'memsahib' also really happy! (PN was amazed 'if only they were all like you' she said - and got a big hug) just got to try to stop feeling damaged and broken now! and got to stay there now - but what I'm doing IS working! Re-show in December.

    Off for a boiled rice baguette for lunch now!!! :woot:

    Weathers looking good out there so bike ride here I come this PM with the. 'Mem :)

    Good stuff @Heretic1

    There are many different roads, but we all want to reach the same destination.

    @Heretic1 If you are still eating "the evil four" I can't imagine what you must have been eating to get diagnosed. Do we get an insight into that?

    @Squire Fulwood
    Let's just say I was nutritionally ignorant .... Well perhaps oblivious! Here goes......, Chips a couple of times a week, takeaway Chinese probably once a week, toast most days for breakfast, sandwiches and pasties most days for lunch - oh and a few pints of Stella most evenings! - I know, I know disgusting .... Which is why I fully deserve to be where I am now and can blame no one else!
    Let's just say 'all change' now!

    Much of what you admit to is not really very naughty in the great scheme of things so to further your embarrassment and for the sake of complete openness may I press you to reveal how many pints of Stella per evening?

    @Squire Fulwood
    4-5 tinnies almost every night!!!!! - and a good few nuts, oh and crisps as well!!!!
    I think I've had the equivalent of about 6-7 tinnies max in the last 3 months! 1 bag of crisps and no peanuts (well ok I now do a handful of Almonds and Cashews a couple of times a week - usually before a good 'Phys' session!!!

    Thank you for your honesty. I was beginning to think that a miracle had happened but now I see it's the tinnies and nuts.

    Think if I had that many Stellas a night I would be able to stay still for me bloods to be taken, would be wriggling in the gutter :D

    :):)@walnut_face
    The funny thing is - or probably not so funny, is the fact that in my 'former life' I could drink an awful lot - with minimal effect - i.e. I could drink most people I know under the table! (not really something to be proud of I now know!)
    NOW having not drunk anything at all for 2 months, and then minimised and been very careful from theron in - a couple of pints now floors me .... as the 'memsahib' now says - I'm definitely a cheap date!
