    Oh William, you poor thing - I'm so sorry you've had such a sh***y day. I'm keeping everything crossed for some good results from all those horrible tests for you. I can sympathise with your odema, too, which is certainly the cause of your weight gain. Keep your chin up, hun, and take some time to be good to yourself. I hope R is looking after you.....
    Big, BIG hugs xxx

    I am doing something wrong ... I am paying £35 a month for this membership!

    The equipment they have is top notch and you can log your activities with the smart card - all very high tech - I hope my new earphones arrive so I can hook in to TV whilst I train ...

    Don't be despondent:)

    I am sure with your level of determination and a really strict approach to LCHF just to give you that extra umph, you'll soon see your numbers lower and stabilise.:)

    Thanks. I'm just been focused now on keeping going, doing what I have been - and hoping the numbers stabilise again. @ickihun gave me a talking to earlier, I won't feel sorry for myself and just be positive ... no more Metformin! Yay!

    hi all now the eye drops are wearing off my vision is getting back to normal I can now see what I'm typing
    yet another hurdle has been placed in my path on this life of type 2 my retinopathy screening didn't go as I hoped as have multiple small bleeds in both eyes and a large bleed in my left eye as well as multiple white spots in both eyes .
    was told that now have to play the waiting game again while they check over my results to decide on what treatment if any they will offer me but they seemed more concerned about the large bleed in my left eye as was clearly visible on the photo's without any magnification and like the other bleeds it was a long sausage like shaped bleed.
    thanks all for your continued support
    ron

    Thinking about you, Ron, at what must be a horrible, anxious and stressful time for you, and for Tina too.
    Big hugs to you both xx

    6 sounds like a pretty good average to me! But you might want to canvas someone with more experience..... @ickihun ? @liam1955 ? @13lizanne ?
    Keep the boots polished........... KTBP - the new partner to LCHF! :joyful:

    Hi @maureen5752 , yes it's a great number Maureen. There's a conversion chart somewhere on the main site which tells you how that converts to a HbA1c if you hang on I'll go and find it but I do know offhand that it translates to a 5 point something. Back in a mo. Anna x
