    Some aim for less than 10g per 100g. Especially for breakfast as worse time for your Insulin resistance (diabetes) to cope with carbs.
    Its not a must but can help.

    Grante, I am just curious as to why you are stopping your metformin?

    It is 5.4 from me this morning. Been a good girl and not over indulge although very tempting. It sucks to be a diabetic.

    That's right. Only true perspective is no meds thou. With meds it distortes the facts a little. All meds have a threshold so once deducted gives the full picture of IR severity. @JeremySE18 .
    I take metformin and insulin to keep my bgs good. Huge amounts of insulin. Even hospital drs are standing watch me inject as cannot believe how much I need and no coma. I am working on it behind the scenes with help of some very clever people.
    I don't know anyone more insulin resistant nor the north of england specialist.
    Now I'm taking enough insulin, I'm losing weight instead of adding. Of course the bgs too and fro, like everyones.
    Its hard work some days, others not so bad. I enjoy posting my fbg and seeing I'm not alone.
    Tomorrows fbg may be wayward as I've had a lot of pain today too from walking. It's a surprise for me every morning. Enjoy your rewards of good fbgs. They are worth celebrating, whatever the meds situation. Well done everyone!

    It's probably your changeable weather hot one day colder the next
    Easy to pickup colds and viruses hopefully just a 24-36 hour thing
    And you'll be fighting fit before long

    It's from the copd I have, if I lay on my back in bed I get short of breath and my heart rate goes up (AFib).
    Then I feel the effects till my spo2 comes back to normal which takes several days.

    My GP will sort me out later this morning when I see him.
