    That's encouraging to hear! Although I'm expecting my next one to be a little higher, as when I first started LCHF I was regularly getting readings in the 4s and 5s, whereas now they are in the 5s and 6s although I'm still eating the same foods. Is that normal, do you think, or does it mean that my BGs are likely to creep up over time?

    Morning. Slight improvement this morning and think I will be OK by the end of the week. Got the runs with all these antibiotics, up to the toilet 5 times last night. Taking Imodium Syrup (POM) for this and it is making it a bit more manageable. FBG 7.9 mmol/l. Going to have brekkie and inject insulin. Sunny here and to get up to 27C again, lovely. If my guts give me peace I might go out and chill. :)

    What's the 200? I'm either being thick, missed a post, or both

    Hi all had my Hb1Ac test this morning for diabetic review like a fool as they had not said it was fasting I didn't but it was,so will not get proper read out on cholesterol levels and ratio. idiot

    I have also found that the best way to get an appointment with doctor is to go in and ask at reception and not by phone have to wait a few weeks but that's OK.
