    Delighted to read that your fbg seems to be returning to more normal levels for you - perhaps one might chillax a tad?

    Hi
    I would love to give my fasting BG but I have left my meter back in England. I now have two kits in the UK now, and by tomorrow I should have one here in Spain. It has been two weeks since I last did a blood test but I am fairly constant but started to get a bit worried so I ordered a kit from Amazon.es. Just for the peace of mind it gives me.

    5.1 this morning. But it required one meal only the day before and coffee with cream for the rest of the day. I've had high blood sugars for a week as a result of trying intermittent fasting. I've moved back to sipping cream and coffee every 3 hours. I'm on 30 grams of carbohydrate a day from vegetables. I also run 50 minutes every morning after breakfast and walk/run 40 minutes at night to help keep my blood sugars low. I sometimes feel like an Olympic athlete in trying to maintain my honeymoon period. I was diagnosed with extremely low insulin two years ago.

    Thanks for the warm welcome and invaluable information, jjaark!
    There is so much information out there...it's confusing and overwhelming and a HUGE learning curve.

    A very unusual 6.3 this morning after a very active and very low carb day. Work is particularly hectic at the moment - I barely sat down for 10 minutes all the time I was at work so felt I deserved a reading in the 4s this morning. Still I did have some impressive 4s during the day and evening yesterday so shouldn't complain.

    Morning all! Sorry for my disappearance over the past few days, renovations and work keeping me going.

    New way of eating going well with 4s across the board with no metformin and a 4.7 this morning.

    TGIF and have a great day all!
