    Excellent liver block @CherryAA . I'm the same.
    I've relaxed my block so my hba1c will show higher but at least I know how to block it and if I'm in dire straights I can rely on it to lower my averages, oh and fbg. Having relaxation til after xmas then I'm up for the fight again.

    My FBG has been persistently stubborn. Always 7.8 - 10.00
    Rest of the day I am in the 6's down to 5's after swimming.
    Yesterday I read about Apple Cider vinegar reducing FBG, but didn't have any, so used Balsamic Vinegar of which I took 4 tablespoons
    with usual snacking (one of the addictions I just can't budge)
    This morning FBG 6.2

    Thoughts? Others' experience?

    Diagnosed T2 8/14
    Current BMI 31
    Current Hb1ac 6.0
    Weight loss since diagnosis 10kg - 15kg - fluctuates
    Diet: no carbohydrate (most days)
    Alcohol moderate
    Exercise swimming
    Average daily range BG 5.9 - 8.8
    No medication

    Hi Cherry AA.
    Take my FBG after getting up, shower etc.
    Tried the few nuts during the evening trick and normally have eggs for breakfast.
    This mornings FBG was 8.4. Hope it goes down after breakfast and some exercise.
    Goodness knows why FBGs getting higher. I've been seeing monthly averages rise, too.
    If trend continues might have to try Metformin but I've avoided any drugs up to now.
    Must dash...taking wife shopping .
