    Mine was 8 this morning. Decided that I am going to test myself for a week (starting at weekend) and take that to the GP and see what they say! Not accepting their no you don't have diabetes when I had an hba1c of 49 down to 43 8 weeks later

    Morning All

    Up to 6.3 today. Work this morning, then off on a naughty boys course this afternoon.

    Will be glad to get that out of the way....

    6.8 this morning. This week my FBGs have shot up and I can't see why! Some detective work needed.

    7.2 this morning but been up and around for an hour before taking it so might have some reason for it because I was really good yesterday and hoped it would be lower. Not doing very well though at the moment and creeping up on average to 7.8 so should really get more control or else Dr has threatened me with drugs which I do not want.

    Hi guys sorry, I have not been around for a few days the internet has been down fasting blood levels have been below 4 both yesterday morning and this morning. So have woken up with a headache. Evening blood sugars have been high. Not sure what is causing the lows, so am going to talk to DN.
    Sorry to hear about your infection Lizanne, hope you feel better soon. I am off to Immunology clinic at Kings this afternoon so will find out if I have got any bugs.

    Morning all,

    9.1 this morning, still too high but better than the last few days. Yesterday I managed a fully LCHF day, the first one in months so that is a positive.

    Hope all those who are feeling sick feel better very soon.
