    Last few days my fasting BG has been elevated somewhat but that's because I've just switched from gliclazide to linagliptin and I understand it will be a week or more before it settles in. RATS!

    Most of us have stopped porriage/cereals, potato, beans, pasta, rice and bread. A huge improvement once these carbs reduced to low grams. Nothing more than 10gs per 100g spikes me.
    Any help too @Jen74 ?
