    . I always ask for print out so I can check with last test and see if and where I've improved or gone wrong, loosing confidence/health/bad news is main reason I've gained over 5kilos!!!! But still only 61kilos, But get next eye done and get back in control again, always someone worse off, good day to everyone

    Hi William out of interest. Did you stop dapagliflozin because of side affects?
    Ive had to stop my canagliflozin due to dangerous side affects.

    7.2 at 7am. That's the lowest reading I've had for a week. Hopefully it means that the cold is finally out of my system.
