    It's not so much the mess Jan, it's the state of the walls and boxing in. Walls are still black, boxing in is not fitted back properly and the bit of wall he chiselled out or whatever hasn't been filled or plastered. He's back tomorrow to do shower so will be mentioning it

    In terms of the bigger picture; are you eating enough? I think we all have particularities surrounding our diabetes, and mine seems to be that if I don't eat enough, my bloods don't behave very well. I'm assuming (as I've never used a CGM) that my liver kicks in more often to help buoy up my blood levels, which then returns a score higher than I might usually have expected.

    It's a real challenge working some of these things out, and clearly there's more trial and error involved than any of us would ideally like to accept. But, that seems to be the game we're involved in.

    Again, I'd suggest a new thread addressing this specific issue. There are some incredibly clever and knowledgeable people out who are probably better equipped than me to shed some light on this. I'll look forward to following it.

    That is a very interesting theory about not eating enough....and is very possible. I will have a think about posting a thread speciifcally about this issue and see what I can find out. As you say there are some very knowledgeable people on here who may have the answers I am looking for....thank you :)

    Made some coconut bars this afternoon which sounded lovely
    but rather soggy ...warm from oven. Not set properly despite 45mins cooking instead if 30... Recipe wrong or its my measuring.....HATE those CUP measure recipes but you don't know, when you buy online, until you get it.... and pathetic recipes...bad spellings, grammar and missing ingredients from list, HUGE writing to bulk no.of pages and not even spaced with heading with ingredients/instructions....

    Waste of £7.99 ... Other book looks better....

    Just had literally dozens of texts about meeting with girlfriends on Thursday Ahhhhhhhhrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Where to go, suggest something, has it got a car park? No, no good unless there's a car park, despite the fact there's parking on street right outside. Time. I say I can't get there until about half six (dentist 4.30) Oh, right we'll meet at 5. Nooooo I can't make it! Oh alright how about 5.30 ********^$$£%^&*())*^^. What have I just said about time. Honestly, lovely as it is to get together and have a gossip, my blood pressure is going through the roof and I will be bald when I've finished pulling my hair out. :mad::mad::mad::facepalm::banghead::banghead::bigtears:

    Just a thought on this one. Type 2s are also more open to glucagon reactions than non-daibetics, dependent on how much damage there is to Beta cells. Eating protein causes a two phase reaction. There is an initial spike where insulin is released to help amino acids into the muscles, which is also countered with glucagon to manage the lack of glucose that comes with protein, and there is a follow up gluconeogenesis effect that results in a slower release of glucose from any excess protein.

    It's likely that you are seeing the initial spike from the glucagon causing your bloods to rise and don't have the insulin or alpha-beta cell signalling to manage it.

    Thanks for that Tim....I had the same reaction last night after dinner when I ate just a thin slice of turkey breast with veg. Oddly enough though I don't have this reaction from something like salmon or tuna or a cheese omelette which are all protein heavy? My numbers stay low with them and sometimes even drop to lower than my pre meal one. How could I stop this reaction happening...could I add something to the meal to even it out that I am not already having? (no clue what :( )....I usually have cauliflower and broccoli with any meat ..(pork, chicken, turkey) Last night's turkey went up to silly numbers and my FBG is the highest I have ever had this morning :(

    Seems very much as though "meat" and "birds" have something in them which fish and cheese proteins don't... have no idea what but maybe if you start a new thread with this in mind you will find other people are the same as you and maybe more knowledgeable on the subject?
