    My cold symptoms seem to be subsiding a little got another good nights sleep last night and that certainly helps your body fight bugs,so hopefully I should be on the mend from here on. Thanks for all your well wishes your all so kind, take care and wrap up warm. K

    Hi all

    13.6 fasting today. Not sure what's going on at the moment. It's been over 10 daily for a while. Even pre-dinner which was in the 5s and 6s has been in the 7s and 8s recently. Not sure whether it's related to the flu jab I had about 10 days ago. That said, I'm very stressed with work at the moment.

    Trying to keep the carbs under control, last A1c was 52, expecting 60 or more this time - got my annual review on 5th Dec and my eye screening on 29th Nov.

    porridge and banana... hah that is almost pure carbs.... yes we don´t get much help from the professionals

    my sister has suggested to mix chia-seeds with oat; 1 spoonfuls of chia and 2-3 spoonfuls of oat..
    I´ll shift the ratio to 2 of each kinds and then only eat it once or twice a week.. and also mix 1 or 2 spoonfuls of coconut oil and then half a spoonful of cinnamon (to help lower blood glucose) all the fibres in the chia seeds and oat will be great.I do sometimes sprinkle some raisins on top too . depending on how high my morning number already is.-how many carbs are your maximum for breakfast ?
