    Morning all. A surprising 4.9 at 5:20am from 5.8 at 11:30 last night before bed. Was expecting much higher as we went to Carluccio's for dinner and I stuffed a large piece of focaccia down my throat with the starter.

    Try the 90% (7g of sugar per 100g) or 85% (tastes better but has about 14g per 100g) chocolate it has less sugar!

    Fbg 8.2 because I didnt block my liver dump. Oh I've reduced my insulin too. Only took 22units so metformin can take the pressure more. Awaiting liver blood test results.
    It's all about the liver not the pancreas for me!

    I do the same. Also my full limit has come right down on lchf. I cannot tolerate more than 2 mouthfuls of carbs.
    Reducing insulin very very slowly but I want to be off insulin for xmas. Wish me luck?
