    Today, just before lunch, after black coffee (and cigarettes, I know I have to quit), no meds, 6.4. Evening meal was less carbs, maybe 60g, but more fat, ribs. Same 2 squares of Lindt 85% and nuts.

    3 weeks ago, I would have 8-9 (about same carbs in the evening) just before lunch, so I am really encouraged. I have a normal BMI weight index. Am I getting more insulin now from my pancreas beta cells as well as less insulin resistance ? Only a blood test at the hospital will show this. Will still continue my 30mg Diamicron MR and 1000mg Metformin, until my next visit to the doctor for a blood test.

    7.7 at 7am.
    It's much higher this week than last, I suspect because I have a cold and have not been sleeping properly.
