    Hi @Keesha I dropped all my meds (except one blood pressure one) without my Dr advice, so its up to you. You could just try it and see how you feel. As for the carbs again whatever suits you. Carbs are not the best friend for diabetics, I have less than 10g a day. :)

    I dropped them after talking to the doctor but if you can’t control it you can go back on them again just give it time and see what happens
    I would expect your figures to rise a wee bit but not to much that you
    Can’t control by diet or exercise

    Thanks for your advice. Will consider it one of these days when my fbs are more consistent and low.

    5.5 which is great considering I went to a party last night. I just ate the low carb finger food options and a piece of fruit off the fruit kebab with a glass of prosecco.
