    Pork scratching are good - try different varieties, also some bags of popcorn are around 8/9g carbs - also 9 Bar nutty bars have around 8g carbs. http://www.9bar.com/

    @Cumberland I commented on a similar post just yesterday. Maybe another patient at your practice?
    We compared their results.

    Morning. Still feeling like **** and still have a swollen face. Sprayed the thingy up my nose and was greeted with a bloody/greenish discharge but got relief for all of 10 minutes. I get the feeling I might need surgery to fix this. I had an operation 25 years ago to fix a broken nose and deviated septum. I was told the septum might deviate back in years to come and it is. My left nostril is a lot narrower than the right and reckon this is the root of the problem. Dry but not that sunny here, been fab all week. Going to do insulin and brekkie soon. :)

    That's just rubbishy for you.

    I hope relief comes sooner than later.

    On the bright side you've had all of our good weather this week. Other than a couple of hours repairing storm damage in my garden, I haven't been able to get out its been so cold and stormy....had the heating on all week.

    Today is meant to be a lot better...I hope do so, as I'm at a 30th birthday party in a big marquee for my niece :)

    Morning Cumberland I'm afraid the nexus glucose rx doesn't do the carb thing is only a basic set but does allow your doc or DN to upload the data so they can see how your readings have been and holds up-to 90 days worth of BG readings .

    Tragic news about the death of Mohammed Ali. He truly was the greatest and I will miss him very much. :)

    As William says above, the GlucoRx Nexus only tests. It's a pretty basic meter and it drives me crazy if I want to check a previous reading, because - as far as I can make out - even if you only wanted to check your last reading, you have to click back through every single reading you've ever taken before you can switch the **** thing off!!!!!
    Have you come across this problem too, @liam1955 ?
    Oh, and the strips are expensive, too.
    :grumpy:

    Is it only 90 days? My readings seem to go back to number 300 or more...........
    And do you know of any way of switching it off before you have to go back through them all, Ron? Thanks!

    Good Morning, my lovely friends,

    I am posting to say that I had a good night's sleep. I was a bit naughty with my diabetes last night between nine and ten o'clock. My mate Lee gave me two chocolate/cream eclairs which I enjoyed very much. Apart from them and 3 hard-boiled eggs and 1 sausage ciabatta that's all I had, or felt like eating, yesterday.

    I took all my prescribed morning medications at 7:10 ante meridian this morning and at 7:20 ante meridian my fasting blood glucose was 5.7.

    The weather in my locality is relatively mild. Sunrise hasn't come yet as it's still only 8:10 ante meridian and the sky is ghostly white with occasional patches of dark grey clouds.

    Rest in peace, Mohammed Ali. I remember this man he was a true icon and the champion of many a boxing sport mete. I shall miss you.

    Have a lovely day, my friends, and rest assured I feel very happy and self-assured today.

    Good morning, Johnny - that's a good reading!
    I love chocolate eclairs, too, although I haven't had one for many months now and don't think I could risk one again.
    I remember Muhammad Ali as well - in fact, I'm so old I can remember him when he was known as Cassius Clay! He was a great boxer.
    I love your description of the weather conditions and the sky this morning - that's beautiful, and very evocative!
    I hope you have a lovely day.
    Hugs

    Morning all. 6.1 reading today, I've accepted it might be higher for a little while (I was a 5s FBG boy) while I adjust to no Metformin. Up around 6.7 a little later, either liver dump or just different reading - not much in it. Main thing is I'm learning to stop beating myself up (well trying to!).

    Off for a swim at the Olympic pool in Stratford shortly, half an hour in a 50m pool will get me going again :)

    Have a great day - looks like we might see the sun?

    was told it holds 90 days of BG data by my DN suppose it depends on how many times you test .
    have just connected my meter to pc and it seems there isn't any way of switching of the reading storage .
