    4.7 this morning - was expecting it to be higher than that - considering dinner last night was at mums (pork, potatoes, Yorkshire pud, followed by apple pudding - which she doesn't make very often - and I am not prepared to give it up - even for diabetes!).

    I had that too when my blood glucose was still very high, then I was overwhelmed by fatigue in my brain like 30 minutes to 1 hour after eating , as soon as I got my numbers back down under 6mmol area in general and stopped eating very high carb foods it went away.
    my best advice is count the number of grams of carbs you eat in a day , and try not to be over 150 grams in total
    most will get their numbers very much down in that way rather fast, if that is not enough then go under 100 grams in total.

    if you eat a breakfast totally without any carbs or almost without carbs then it will become much easier to gain control.

    like cheese and ham (no bread ) or omelet with mushrooms and tomato, half an avocado with taco-sauce, bacon and eggs .. and so on..

    Thanks for the info sorry the site keeps logging me out then doesn't recognise me when I log back in unless I come in on the confirm your account email.
    I have taken my bloods three times today to see if it shows anything and I am trying to be wary of my carbs but I eat on the run as I travel with work so not regular meal times and I have allergies so just having to make the diet fit, its not an easy start but sure it will come in time

    Fasting overnight bloods 7.8
    2hrs after eating bfast 8.6
    2hrs after lunch very drowsy 8.0
