    Good idea...I've got this book at home...might be worth a re-read. Giving myself a headache trying to figure out what's causing it...felt quite nauseous yesterday so barely ate anything and certainly nothing too carby which makes me think it's perhaps a bug or something...confused

    5.3 this morning - been diagnosed 10 days (currently assuming Type II as have had pancreatitis twice)

    On 1000 mg metformin - was diagnosed on 10.9 then 17.9 and a Hb1AC of 106

    Both doctor and nurse were both in shock this morning - probably a blip - lets hope not - then my daughter, a diabetic nurse thinking I might be going the other way - can never keep everyone happy - I'm eating more now than I've done for years and still enjoying a small iced fresh orange with my meals
