    Hello everyone. BG 4.3 fasting today. Prefer it a tad higher to be honest, as I get a pounding headache the nearer to 4.0 my BG goes. :meh: Have a nice Monday Folks. :happy:

    BG 8.3 but reducing insulin to help with weight loss. Canagliflozin 100mg replacing some insulin. Approx. 70 units in total at mo.
    Seeing DN on 16th. I'll see what hospital wants to do. Run me on 7 and 8s or increase tablet to reduce insulin and BGs more. Tablet working for me. :) :) :)

    Hi All

    I had a 6.3 this morning.

    I'm always around 5.5 by tea time though, but morning readings are all over the place.

    5.1mm/L when I woke up this a.m. Eye check up this Wednesday for those floaters I get from time to time. Losing weight. I can't believe how much thinner my legs are getting.
