    That's not bad at all. Some newly diagnosed/New to testing have been in the high teens even twenties. Also fasting is the hardest to gain any sort of control over. Look up DP Dawn Phenomenon on main site, sorry, on phone App so can't link you x

    Thats what I was getting up until a couple of weeks ago.

    Knocking the carbs back, though not totally, has worked really quickly to improve my levels.


    Oh and the Sketcher s...OMFG! It's like walking with your own fluffy clouds attached to your feet.

    Not really. Doctors and nurses have to cope with many unrelated conditions. They are trained in practises that are traditional and trusted. If you trust in your training there is little incentive to reject it and accept a completely different strategy. Here, however, we are all fixated on the one topic so we have had the luxury of time and self-interested motivation to find the very latest information. Health care professionals will catch up eventually!

    I have to ask, why the sleep pattern if you think it is a contributing factor.
    Cheers

    If anything like me it's not intentional....I can't usually get to sleep until between midnight and 2am..... I go to bed earlier and listen to music and read or watch a film or whatever until all my muscles are relaxed enough to sleep ... Was just settling down at midnight when dog wanted out so finally slept about half one :(

    Doesn't wine suppress blood glucose a little (especially red wine?).

    I see blood readings of 5 and 6 but I have never managed that, mine is 10 today so does anyone know why, I walked a few miles yesterday but didn't eat too badly?
