    Impossible. Improbable. Confusing.

    I've not posted for 7 months, mainly because my fasting levels were quite high, but my GP was happy with my HbA1C which was 52 until recently.

    This morning's reading was 11.9, but I've come off metformin (under GP guidance) and tried empagliflozin for a week, but had to come off them as I was urininating every hour and drinking over 3 litres of fluid a day. I've been on 40 mg of gliclazide too for a couple of years, and am now trying 80mg on it's own.

    My reading before dinner today was 15.4, so I'm hoping things settle down. I've a GP appointment on 7 March, but if my blood suger stays high I'll have to go back on metformin till I get to see her.

    Hope everyone's OK. Good wishes to you all.
