    9.1 which is probably the after effects of the frazzles I ate on the train home from The Big Smoke. Need to get back on my game

    Doctors in Switzerland (where I now live) and U.K. seem to have vastly different views on Diabetes. I had my quarterly check this morning - Hb1Ac was 6.8 which, I’m told, was fine and BP is also ‘normal’. However, under no circumstances should my readings go under 5, nor should I even consider fasting for a couple of days. However I’m borderline anaemic. Just can’t win! Still heavy mist here.

    6.2 at 0645hrs - and I gladly admit that I am completely confused regarding which of my results I should be pleased with and which not. Yesterday’s check-up discussions have left me wondering.

    Good luck with that. I sympathise with your predicament as I am in a similar situation but based on UK recommendations which from what you posted are quite different. Where is the third way when you need it? The real kicker is that fretting about it will likely make the situation worse. In my case I will settle for the good bit (lipids) holding steady and aim to tweak the less good bit (A1c of 38) in a manner unlikely to damage the lipids. Let us know how you play this as I am interested. Best of luck.
