    I live in Switzerland and my Doc just seems to have a different view of the subject than UK doctor’s. He thinks ‘5’ is a more realistic reading and he’s also totally against fasting. I just follow his rules (a local acquaintance gets the same advice from his GP).

    I believe he said/thinks there’s less chance of me dropping to ‘hypo’ levels if I stick to the above.

    That probably caused one short spike.

    6.7 under stressful conditions......nurse struggled for 45 minutes to get a cannula in for my flucox IV.......veins are in rubbish order after 4 weeks of abuse.......can't wait till they switch me to oral. Still....rewarded with 20mg oramorph, 40 mg MST(slow release morphine) and 600mg gabapentin which should keep me pain and hunger free till lunch( coffee only).

    Painkillers......the breakfast of champions......although that's enough for a champion racehorse:nurse:

    Well, I'm certainly not a winner @ 6.9. Not quite 3 months into my journey yet though so I have to remind myself I'm doing OK!... and on diet only :)
