    High'ish, but nothing to be alarmed about. Mine was always about that when I was first diagnosed, then started to drop as the diet took effect. I'm now about 6 to 6.5 normally, sometimes a tad lower.

    Hello All,

    Hope we are well.

    I started this thread, as the other one has results of both types 1 and 2's, so as a type 2 myself, i just wanted to see results for type 2, as my thinking was other type 2 may be also interested.

    Cheers

    6.1 at 08:00 today. I'm almost hoping I've got an underlying infection! :shock: :oops: After all those lovely 4s in July - the only difference is I have no pain; I'm still taking the meds!

    7.0 the lowest fasting I have had yet. I think I am going to try and concentrate my testing around my later meals though as I mentioned in my other post.
