    4.4 this morning. I'm type 1 and seem to have the insulin dosage about right at the moment. I eat what I want and bolus for it. Though I normally don't eat high carbs - never have at home. Last night had some pals over for supper. Roast chicken etc (and yes i did have a roast spud!) and vanilla cheesecake and raspberries for dessert. All this washed down with a gin and slim and 1/2 bottle of white wine! Bedtime BG was 7.4 and wasn't sure that this was high enough with the alcohol so had a digestive. Woke up with normal 4. something. I can see from this thread just how frustrating it must be to be type 2 and struggling with high figures. I moan about having to inject the insulin but at least I can force my numbers down. Diabetes is a real challenge right across the board. Most of our knowledge is self taught through trial and error. Stick with it guys!;)
