    5.5 at 9am this morning. This is my first ever test with a meter. Hopefully this is good for someone who has been on a LCHF diet for two weeks and has lost 5kg since? Newly diagnosed with HbA1c of 49.

    @Dave from Weeton Yes 5.5 is good. That is the magic number we aim for. If you average around that over 12 weeks it would be an HbA1c of 37, which is in the non-diabetic range.
    You are doing well both with reducing your blood sugar and weight. Keep up the good work! :)
