    Hi Daisy,
    Since taking Mets for almost 21days now, i saw my BG down from 16 to an daily average of 9-10 mmo/L.
    Question: my fasting BG is still high at average 8-9 despite me having mostly a VERY low carb supper meal & i am very stressed on how to get these numbers lower
    My lifestyle has taken a drastic change since , so have my eating habits, it just feaks me out each time when i eat a little more carbs.
    What's your take on this?

    MY fasting BSLgoes up who stress from overnight carpal tunnel pain/. However, despite this my HbA1C is still 6.1

    I find that if I eat a few almonds before going to bed my BSL is lower in the morning fasting reading. A small protein snack appears to help.

    This week my Fasting BS has been 4.8, 4.6 , 4.7, 4.9 & 4.8 mmol.

    Could be due to the fact I've been cycling to work on my old heavy mountain bike, normally i commute on a much lighter road bike.

    I have only been testing for two weeks. This mornings reading was 7.3. I am happy with this as two weeks ago when I started it was 13.9. I cannot take Metformin as it makes me very poorly. I am on 40mg of Gliclazide. I have taken up a low carb diet and have lost 8lb in the two weeks since starting. My reading are generally in the low 5's for the rest of the day.

    I wouldn't have thought that your height affects your Blood Sugar levels. Why would it?

    My readings were 7.7 at 0745 then I tested again at 0755 and it was 8.2. I think the new meter I am using is faulty or my cold has affected readings. I haven't had such high readings since I've been testing over the last four weeks.

    You are doing well in reducing your BG from 16 to 9-10 in 21 days. Don't get stressed (stress will raise your BG).
    It does take time to get your BG levels down, it doesn't happen immediately unfortunately. Just keep on doing what you are doing.
