    Thanks @Hiitsme ☺ must admit at being amazed at how well the lchf works, and at myself for managing to achieve this in such a short time! Fingers crossed that I can sustain the same progress by my next blood tests! I do find it hard to keep my carbs so low sometimes, and I can always see in my bg, when I have made a mistake or been over my limit. I had wondered if an extra dose of metformin in the morning, instead of just at night, might help? Any ideas?

    Thanks @paula.nolan42 I have shocked myself! ☺ a fair way to go with my weight yet, but I am determined to get to within my "normal" range.

    6.3 at 6.45 am, and 5.8 at9am after breakfast.

    Was a bit higher than normal all day yesterday, and today I've been completely out of it - some evil diabetes fairy must have sneaked knockout drops into my veins... :D:D:eek: I assume I've got some sort of a bug.

    Can I ask users of this thread to stay on topic. This thread is for fasting bg results and is not a general chat thread. We had this problem before and people were given a general chat thread to use for that purpose. Lots of people are assisted by posting their FBG and it would be a shame to close the thread.
