    Diet could make a difference. (Edited by mod to remove reference to medication advice).
    Stop porriage and banana. Other high carb foods too. Then see what your bgs are like? I think you could have good bgs levels with diet and exercise.
    There are loads of posts Iin this forum about low carb diet where there are fantastic results. I low carb too but unfortunately I've had diabetes 40+yrs and didn't get your help to do diet and exercise properly.

    II'm off now to test my fbg. Bit late this morning due to not settling for sleep til 3.30am due to asthma attack.
