    I never worry about sell-by dates on yoghurt. As long as it doesn't taste "fizzy", it's fine!

    Well I finally woke up to a decent reading 5.3 BUT all I had for dinner was two small glasses of red wine (seeing a friend), five olives wrapped with anchovies and some walnuts. I can't help but think this isn't the way forward.

    Mine did something similar too last night - same foods that I'd eaten before with no dire effects - the only thing different was that I'd been feeling cold all evening ... I don't get it either!

    It certainly keeps us on our toes. I was all ready to start the Newcastle diet again but my sister said that I should give lchf a bit longer. I've had an appointment for eye screening through and I think I will bite the bullet and ask if I can have blood taken for hba1c on the same day. I haven't had any tests since December 2015 when it was 58 and they told me that I didn't need medication and should just carry on with my normal routine.

    @Swiggy if you are T2 you should get a HbA1c test at least every 12 months (NHS guidelines).
