    5.5 at 0550hrs. Yesterday’s highest reading was 7. Tomorrow is quarterly GP check-up (HbA1 etc) with an hour-long ‚discussion‘ with his practice assistant, who now specialises in diabetes, thrown in for good measure. Am not over enthusiastic about that. Might have been more receptive a year ago when I was diagnosed. Mal schauen!

    Be very careful Metformin blocks liver dumps and you need this pathway with extended fasting.
