    Some days I don’t understand my results at all, yesterday I had a very hard day in the garden & ended up too tired to cook. So it was down to the chippy for haddock & chips followed later by Keto lemon cheesecake with double cream.

    It’s delicious and I had even cheated on the base by using some low carb digestive biscuits mixed with ground almonds

    Actually I should have said the lowest carb content of what was on the shelves. I used 4 Sainsbury’s digestive biscuits with ground almonds to make up the rest. The biscuits are 8.4g each. I figured that just using 4 would be enough to make a nice base and it did

    6.3 last night
    5.5 this morning.

    And I must admit the cheese cake we had yesterday did raise my sugars somewhat

    Little shop up the road the deli on the hill the proprietor makes them himself "chocolate and hazelnut " and they are simply gorgeous could not resist.

    Confíteor Deo omnipoténti
    et vobis, fratres,
    quia peccávi nimis
    cogitatióne, verbo,
    ópere et omissióne:
    mea culpa, mea culpa,
    mea máxima culpa.
    Ideo precor beátam Maríam semper vírginem,
    omnes angelos et sanctos,
    et vos, fratres,
    oráre pro me ad Dóminum Deum nostrum.

    This is exceptionally low for me recently - mornings are usually in the mid teens at least. Insulin and breakfast doesn't improve it at all.

    6.3 last night and 6.3 this morning...

    a bit disappointed but life goes on... I am also not happy with my Onglyza which I believe is causing muscle pain and some weakness in legs.... i am inclined to stop it though my doctor won’t be happy. I am thinking of having a small serving of whey protein drink - probably half a serving / with main meals. As I understand whey does pretty much what Onglyza does. DPP Inhibitor to increase insulin production. I know we need to address insulin resistance and not just increase insulin production but till i am able to get some insulin sensitivity back (with increased work out), I think whey is probably a better way to generate a bit more insulin than Onglyza. At least i get some protein in and hopefully less side effects. I never imagined managing this would be such a painful balancing act

    Hope everyone is having a good day and looking forward to a good weekend

    8.7 at 10.30 last night and 6.1 at 8am this morning. These are usually my best readings. The rest of the day I’m up around 11 and 13. I’ve lost the good control I had last year. Working hard to get it back but it’s a struggle.

    10.8 at 0015 this morning (last night)
    8.2 at 0800 today
    BG seems to be coming back under some control compared to the last few weeks - probably because I zero carbed yesterday. Did the same today until I had a disrupted afternoon and no time to eat which put my reading down to 5.5 but I couldn't go out without food so I bought a serving of chips from a van on my way to town - didn't enjoy them but they only put my BG up to 7.3 (after insulin). Zero, or almost zero carbs has to be the way to go, but I still wonder if I am damaging my kidneys and liver.
