    Welcome @Gina698 and you have my sympathy on your loss and subsequent disruption to diet. Well done on testing, posting and asking for advice. This is the right forum with loads of threads. Best tip I can give is don't be a stranger. Fasting can be the slowest to fall so don't fret :)

    Diet sounds good @JMcB so just stick with it and wait for the results. It obviously took a while for the situation to get to the point of diagnosis so it will take time to become well managed. How is the metformin going? Also, maybe take a look at this thread for ideas https://www.diabetes.co.uk/forum/threads/what-have-you-eaten-today.75781 and advice

    I haven’t been taking the metformin since early on. I did take one yesterday morning during my freak out session but don’t plan on doing so again as long as my new exercise regimen continues to bring the BG down after meals.
    Thank a for the thread! I’ll head over there now.

    Good morning everyone. A misty start here which usually means bright sunny day to follow at this time of year. 4.7 for me today.
    72 hour fast done with good ending - bg 3.9 and ketones 2.9. Today our firstborn is 32 and is coming to see us with his son so all is good. Hope everyone has a great weekend and can either avoid or watch the wedding/sport as they wish. 2 top rugby union games, the cup final and 2 IPL games and a wedding for lady boys :angelic: Needed to be a Bank Holiday pubs would have had a proper bonanza.

    Gooood moooorniiiing. DIABETES do co for UUUU KKKK.

    On this super sunny Saturday, on waking at 6am, I sacrificed my blood on Lady Vampira's alter.

    Upon tasting it, she announced and gave me her blessing of 5.5.

    I gave joy to this, and wonder if the God Dia Bet es did take pity upon me, as I had 5 sweet potato fries with my salad and two scoops of delicious strawberry sorbet withmy mealat 9pm last night

    Either that or my body is wired wrongly to get that result considering all the 6'si have been getting by being good.

    Now,may you all a super Saturday today
