    No - it is not normal, but you have just started. With some plan and willingness I bet you can control your T2D with much better numbers. Contact @daisy1 for first instructions.

    @Tony 1711 here's a link to some ideas that may help. Worked for me but we are all individual http://donnareish.com/low-carb-flour-mix/

    Edit:
    We made a batch and used it for a Toad in the hole - good bg levels not to my taste; coating for squid and whitebait - bg good and liked lots;
    Next experiment will be with low carb beer making a batter
