    Do you need to see your GP? How are you? I’m worried about you.

    OK, today you’re 11.3, that’s high, sure, but only in January you were 17.9! That’s quite a success, and kinda mirrors my control. If you wish, give us some more background: Meds and HBA1C etc.

    Hiya
    My metaformin was increased last week from 1 to 2 tablets (500mg each). Although they are the slow release they are upsetting my tummy. 4 toilet dashes in 1 hour so not going to work today. Just feel a bit overwhelmed at the moment with it all

    6.6 for me this. Was expecting it to be high as I had chicken meat and salad with garlic mayo from the chippy for tea and although it doesn't spike me it leaves my blood higher the next day.

    8.3 - Why? Because yesterday I had had an evening meal of a Bowl SpagBol AND 12 noon lunch of scrambled eggs on a delicious Bagel. However, during the day, and after 18 hour fast I registered 5.3. My Levels ARE erratic, but I know that during today they will come down. And yet again, I’m starting to get the real measure of these ZombieCarbosteins.

    I now know HOW I can get spikes and that I’m no longer in sheer terror or a panic. I hope this helps others.
