    Thanks @Terrytiddy. I am onboard with the view that LC may be fine for cholesterol and my own numbers support that. Fasting for longer periods may be less helpful - LDL and ratios are fine in my case but Trigs are not where I want them - fasting is not for me anymore. Trigs are fine in my case but are better without fasting so it goes. Other people may be fine so I just wondered as some things I read suggested that link i.e. fasting and even IF raising cholesterol.

    6.0 for me this morning, down from last night's spike.

    Being new to testing, I thought I'd confirm that bread (including whole wheat) is a spike for me so at dinner yesterday I had a small lower carb whole wheat bun (17 carb) with a hamburger.

    I was rewarded with a post dinner reading of 6.7 (an increase of 1.8% from predinner), one of my higher readings since I got a meter & started testing. Buns & bread of any kind are definitely off the menu for me.

    (I do have a very low carb tortilla - 3 net carbs due to added fibre & soy flour that I will probably try in a few days but I'm not optimistic as it seems whole wheat is a trigger for blood glucose spikes for me.)

    Mine was 14 again this morning and late afternoon down to 11.4. Not sure why it's dropped so much from 14 over the past 2 days?

    So I've just managed 3 days in a row with all my daily tests averaging under 6 (pre and post meal). Today was a slight cheat though because I accidentally left my meter at home so missed a few tests.
    That said at dinner (veg stir fry, with baked salmon) I had half a bag of prawn crackers (no rice or noodles) and plenty of sweet chilli sauce and a couple of squares of dark chocolate for my pudding...I only went up from 5.9 to 6.3....happy days.
    Certainly an improvement today on yesterday when I just felt sluggish, tired and a bit miserable all day - a hangover from doing too much exercise and getting too much sun on Sunday I think.
    Goodnight fellow finger-spikers.

    Surprisingly my sugars have been all over the place. I’m currently on an insulin drip due to being nil by mouth since Sunday. I bet I’ve not lost weight either !
    Sugars at 4.10 we’re 7.2 having been in the 5’s and 6’s since Sunday
