    Makes me wonder how the thousands of people who follow the doc's advice not to test and therefore are living in ignorance. Testing FBG keeps me focussed although it's not always encouraging when I've slogged hard to keep carbs low but it's not reflected in the reading. I know from experience it all improves in the end and at our own body's pace. It's a marathon not a sprint and one that needs to last for life.

    I wonder how many lives have been 'saved' by this forum. We should all be proud of ourselves for the improvements we've made to our health and ultimately our destiny. I wish we could change all the incorrect advice out there that is literally killing people who aren't strong enough to take control.

    Blood sugars are stable! Galja suggested prayer (chant) reduces bgl... mine went up by 0.2... was in the 5s for most of the day yesterday (except for when i had to take my steriod inhaler and went up to the 6s)

    Back to fasting today so hopefully my bgl levels will be good and back on track for the hba1c in a couple of weeks.:confused:

    A shocking 10.5 this morning at 6am. I was so good with my diet yesterday, including dinner and after dinner (cup of chamomile tea with NO honey) ; so I'm putting this down to the stressful news I received just as I was getting ready for bed. What a bummer, aye. Anyhow bgl is now 8.3 two hours later, am having breakfast now then I'm off to my weekly session at the gym. Should be therapeutic for both glucose and stress levels. Bring on the treadmill! lol! (I'm in NZ and my day's just beginning.)
