    I was diagnosed this past July and at first my FBGs were waaaaay higher than my post-meal readings, by like three or four points. They seem to have stabilized now.

    Reporting back in - I've made progress! I'm trying a fresh food equivalent to the the Newcastle diet at the moment. But I'm eating it as one big meal around 1pm. This has really lowered my average blood sugars - especially as I take a brisk walk for 45 minutes after eating! So my bgs are now mostly in the 5s and 6s.

    Last night 5.2 and this morning 5.8.

    But this is a no way a normal eating pattern, I'm aiming for 800 calories a day. Feels like I need to give my liver and pancreas a rest with low bgs for as many hours a day as I can manage. My food is very boring though...

    8.5, meh! Must have been those luvverly fish and chips last night. My diabetic friend who was sitting next to me told me to notch up the insulin a bit to compensate but I wussed out, still need to hold the DN's hand a bit at the moment. Never mind, live and learn. Great night though, we came 2nd out of 20 teams. Off out to London for a very long walk today with rather a lot of other people ;)

    BG yesterday was an odyssey that's the only way I can describe it
    bgsunday2.jpg
    it was 3.2 last night
    4.1 this morning
    I now know what happened yesterday with my BG (I'm assuming at this stage).
    I suspect it was the Splenda I started adding to my morning Joe.
    Apparently it causes a cephalic insulin response.
    Strangely after my coffee with my first meal around past 3 I felt ok all day. I had woken up with a slight headache, which soon went away once I ate.
    Mind I had coffee with that meal, maybe the caffeine banished it for good.
    My Ketones were 2.3
    The 2.9 was after a 30min walk to pick up some groceries, when they open @ 10:00AM
    The 3.2 was after my usual evening walk
    The 4.1s are post prandial from 1st meal yesterday and FBS this morning

    6.2 and 5.9 - and nothing carby at all.
    I'm succeeding, after a fashion, but low carb will have to be a permanent lifestyle.
    At least my waistline is reducing - looks like another set of clothes will be needed by Christmas, but weight is remaining steady.
