    Morning all, from a coldish Shire, with just a wee bit of Sun... :)
    6.3 fasting today, BUT this seems to be something of a problem from yesterday, as after a lunch of ratatouile and white beans, my bs went up to 6.6 which caused some mild tiredness, which went rather unnoticed because of a very stressful day of having my car at garage failing the MOT big time, facing a pretty high bill today to have it hopefully fixed and running, plus the stress of waiting for a late GP for my diabetes bloodtest review, etc, etc.
    Yesterday late evening I had a mini feast with a bit more peanuts and blueberries than usual, but that didn't justify the 6.7 reading before bed...
    Nevertheless, I am rather happy, as today is the first day without Forxiga, and I have to learn controlling my levels without that powerful sugar-uptake-reversing medicine, relying on testing/diet/Metformin only ;-)
    Take care you good people :-D

    Congrats to @MosheBenYehuda and @loulou99782 for some great work with yesterday's results from docs

    Had a weird day yesterday after my high fasting figure - my blood was up and down like a yoyo between 4.1 and 7.5 but it settled down eventually late last night and I had a nice 4.8 on waking this morning :)

    Hi would like to join in with this as was only diagnosed 2 months ago, my morning blood test vary between 7.1 and 10.6. This morning it was 8.9, quite pleased with that although looking through I see a lot of people are well below that.

    It's not a competition @Jo G, you may need some more help so why not post on
    http://www.diabetes.co.uk/forum/category/newly-diagnosed.39/

    and tell us a bit about yourself, medication, lifestyle, types of meals. This thread is only for fasting numbers and your post will be seen by a wider audience on Newly Diagnosed.

    5.8 today. However the air temp my body is experiencing has more than doubled after just a 2 hour flight, so that's my excuse.

    I always thought Pringles were disgusting! A typical "food product" rather than nutritious, real food. Now Kettle Chips is a completely different kettle of fish/potatoes... ;) :p

    My FBG of 7.1 is slowly going down, though still not back to my usual even after 2 days of very strict carb intake (<30).
