    Notice that a lot of your fastings are under 4
    I would be hypo
    Do you feel OK in the mornings? Sometimes I can go hypo at 4.5

    Best wishes

    After my nice run of fasting 5s, I'm back up in the 6s again.

    So far this week 6.2, 6.0, and today at 6.12 am up to 6.6. It seem that my body will only put up with lower levels for a limited time as this usually happens... :eek:

    Hi Cumberland,i believe you are T1, and i am T2, and thats the important bit, my bs's have never risen above 4.0 am fasting now since i hit my target weight of 12st 12 lbs and 2hrs after dinner 6.8mmols or under. I have never experienced any kind of hypo or hyper...since diagnoses nearly three years ago,only thing i did get was neuropathy of the feet. And the usual thirst and peeing in the night...but all that ceased upon getting bs's under 5.5 mmols about 18 months ago...you would be surprised if you knew how strict i am with my food portions and exercise regime..which helps a great deal...this forum and the great posters are my lifeline..and the Great Dr Richard Bernstein
    If there is anything i can help you with please pm me very best wishes clive

    After a long period of no control, I have taken stock, and I am eating 20-30g of carbs a day. Have been doing this for nearly a week. Cannot get my bg under 10. Will it take a long time for it to slowly climb down? Surely if I am having neg carbs, the level should be going down significantly? It has been as high as 16 at some points today. I take 500mg metforminn every 8 hours.
