    13.3 this morning.

    On 1g Metformin and 2mg glemipiride. Cut out bread. Still averaging about 15 throughout the day. Have sent a message to my DSN as we can't get face to face contact at the moment of course.

    11.1 this morning.

    Had a message from my DSN. She doesn't want to increase or change my medication. She wants me to stop testing even though NHS are providing me with testing supplies. Also wants me to cut out all crisps, chocolate and all other snacks, so I'll do that for at least a week to see if it helps. Definitely need to reduce the choccy radically.
