    Things aren't too good at the moment. This morning was 18.9. It's been high all week. I have auto immune problems which probably not helping. May have LADA rather than type2. Let's wait n see.

    Fasting glucose was 10.4 on the test taken 2.5 weeks ago.

    Diagnosed as Type 2 last Friday based on the above results. Since the fasting test 2.5 weeks ago, I hit the gym etc etc. Waking levels seem to be lowering from 10.4 at the time of the fasting test to 6.1 this morning. Am diet and exercise only at the moment and losing weight (7lb so far) and have put myself on a low carb diet since diagnosis.

    I think this could be a useful thread to ressurect?

    For me, 4.4 this morning.

    The next few days will potentially be quite chaotic as I'll be travelling, and end up with a -4 time shift, followed immediately by a full day out with some real social animals.

    Hopefully properly back in the saddle by the end of the week.
