    8.7 fasting... aarrrrgh! Didn't appear to go above 9 though yesterday.

    Had one slice of irish wholemeal bread with lashings of butter in the morning, an apple, and then made a keto cabbage and mince stir fry at about 3pm, and then had seconds at 8pm. Had a piece of cheese before bed, but didn't actually sleep til about 5.30am as I'm in the West of Ireland living in a caravan (while I renovate a cottage) and Doris was banging on the window!

    Bought a Freestyle Libre yesterday, and going to eat totally keto today. Thinking about stopping taking the Lyxumia til my next appointment in 2 weeks where I'm being prescribed Bydureon... Just to see what happens. :-/

    Not good again this morning - up to 7 :( Up sick during the night as I'm having bad side effects to Metformin. Spoke to DN and they are going to switch me to the slow release so hoping that makes a difference.

    Well done for fasting, I'm on the same journey. On fourth fast day, and for me it works. Gone from a month of 10+ readings to 5.5 this morning. I've just got to keep it there! All the very best with the fasting and building work!! :)

    3.8 this morning - did an experiment last night and took a Gliclizade with my evening meal. The result was this morning's 3.8 (as opposed to the 5's I have been having), so I definitely don't need it under normal circumstances (I say normal - i.e. low carb days!)

    7.9 this morning, had a very restless night with RLS, lots of weeing and pins and needles, tempted to go out and get P****d tonight if only to get my sleep back.
