    Fasting level this morning was 7.6. Not too good but still recovering from Easter. Read Reverse your Diabetes
    and it gave me encouragement. Diagnosed in 2004. Never any medication. Average level over the years 7.4.
    Told by my medic daughter that I won't die of diabetes at my age (80) and not to worry. Have found recently
    that my morning levels exactly follow my indiscretions of the day before. A chocolate eclair yesterday!
    3 days ago 5.6. No indiscretions ! Coming into Winter. Colder this morning 12 deg C. Totally blue sky.
    Normal. Saw your weather yesterday on Sky. Freezing with Summer approaching. Hope you have a better
    Summer this year. Bye.

    Fbg 5.5 wow, well impressed with my new fasting levels. I broke ketosis and I'm back on lchf with pork scratchings and losing weight too. If I'd known it's effect I would have done this diet years ago. I'm hoping to keep this winning formula forever but we all know nothing lasts.
    @Tim55 I've ordered R-ala but hasn't arrived yet. Hoping will reduce my insulin need by half. :) :) :)

    A sort of symmetry today: 6.0 at 6.00am :p

    Still mostly high during the day yesterday in spite of my nice low start.

    Morning All

    Early start for me again, and snowing to boot.

    Perhaps the slightly high 6.3 is understandable?

    Morning all. 4.7 at 6:30 this am.
    Looking back over the last month, highest reading is 5.4. All thanks to the Low Carb program, best thing I have done in ages.
