    5.8 again today - very unusual for me to have a series of the same numbers at any time and above trend. @JanetMcDowell I recognise that explanation - surely the reason is all the love lavished on you for Mother's Day or an April Fool's prank.

    6.2 this morning, don’t mind that at all, had a lovely weekend away in Wales dancing the tango and definitely didn’t stay below 20g carbs a day!

    Great outcome there - I seem to recall you were quite apprehensive about stopping Metformin.

    Another case of 'I was, but needn't have been.' It's all down to the diet - I wish I'd known before T2 reared it's ugly head!
