    I don't know what my readings are any more as my doctor has removed testing strips from my prescription.

    Book an appointment and tell them you need to be able to test your blood sugar to be able to control your diabetes

    I've been warned my test strip script won't be continuing much longer.

    I do sense a tone of disapproval :) - even if this wasn't meant.

    I didn't eat any fruit for 4 months but I am not throwing away the gorgeous mangoes given to me to bring home. Once they are gone, they are gone. I am not trying to reintroduce fruit; this is an exception and one that makes me curious.

    I had a very late breakfast today and at 12.30 my BG was 7.2. I then had some mango and then went for a walk and was back after an hour and a half. 2 hours after my mango my BG was 5.8.

    Any disapproval you detected was that you know you hadn't tested adequately, and I felt you wanted somebody to say it was a great score. Of course, I could be wrong, but I'd rather not be disingenuous, as you asked.

    Vis a vis this morning; did you recheck your post breakfast? What brought that on? Of course, at 7.2, you could have been falling rapidly, with the exercise then accelerating your digestion to help you cope with the carb. Many people find the can have x, y or z, provided they exercise within an hour or so. @cold ethyl is one such poster. I think she has peddle-pay-back down to a fine art!

    Thank you... I went to the pharmacy today and they recommended taking a medication for breaking down the mucous first... I also have a large syringe for special salt-water for my nose :eek::eek: I am not looking forward to doing it one bit, I have to tell you...it looks vile, but I am assured that it will give long-lasting effects... I wonder how good I will be at it... I shall do it in the shower every day I think... My friend says she was in such terrible pain with infected sinuses that she stupidly took antibiotics, which helped for about a week... when it came back with a vengeance she did the salt thing and she has been clear ever since, without even a headache... I understand that diabetics are prone to sinus infections? I haven't researched it yet - the internet here has been a little erratic... I will look it up at some point ... or is it just low-carbing - we eat a lot of dairy I guess, and it's bad for creating mucous.... I don't when I'm in the UK because I can get all the lovely goat's things and the lactose-free things... :) Maybe that's why I'm suffering now....
