    6.2 this morning.

    (Note to self: Avoid toast and Marmite as evening snack - even if it is Sainsbury's low carb bread!)

    Despite warnings of a retaliatory attack, madam BG isn't beating a retreat as one would expect. I despair again.
    7.4
    This just won't do and am beginning to wonder if my weapons are faulty.

    hey glad you are okay, I really don´t know what difference I have done that has lowered my numbers in the mornings a bit...I think maybe it is due to me taking more vitamin D and a multivitamin pill too and trying to see what reservatol does to me, my father had Alzheimers and I am afraid to end up the same way myself.... and that my sister will too, so read that reservatol is thought to lower the risk of Alzheimers, funnily I also yesterday read that it is thought to lower insuline resistance too... but you know new products are almost always praised to be close to a miracle medication that cures almost every disease one might catch or already have inherited
    But now I´ll try taking that for some month and see what change it might lead towards

    Well I got a shock - had some exercise yesterday and stopper the Easter buns and chocolate - 6.4 yesterday at 7am but 7.2 this mornings at the same time and I was really good yesterday
    I was only 4.8 before dinner last evening and 8.6 two hours after dinner and would have expected better than 7.2 this morning
