    • 7.2 fasting - not very happy with that
    Violent storms here - not happy with that either.
    Bad start to the day :(

    I wish it was. A bit late now. I did start the day with a lie-in this morning since it's Sunday but it didn't improve the weather though :wink:

    Me? The same as always. Porridge with skimmed milk and a tiny bit of fruit sugar - yummy!

    Brilliant, Didie! You must be pleased with that.

    5.0 at 08:00 today. Then 5.3 at 09:30 (still fasting) in the surgery just before the nurse took blood for my tests. Results back Thursday, I hope.

    5.6 fasting.

    HbA1c this morning. I'll not get the result until 4 October. I really hope I've done enough to avoid medication. I've lost almost 1.75 stone since my stroke in June and am walking at least 3 miles every day so I'm feeling quite hopeful.

    4.8 Fasting and 7.0 after 2 hours.

    Breakfast was one slice of Multigrain bread. I seem very sensitive in the mornings, so 20g of carbs is about the most I can take

    Used my Contour meter (whole blood) this morning instead of my Freestyle Lite (plasma) and got 5.8 at 07:00. Not too bad considering what I ate and drank yesterday - post-HbA1c treat! :oops:

    Found my Freestyle Lite meter again, and was 5.2 at 08:00 today. I'm upping my carbs a bit with a view to doing a home GTT next Monday.

    Didie, you are doing really well! Congratulations! :D
