You're probably right but there's nothing wrong in 5.8.
Hope the DAPHNE course went well.
Perhaps the wrong thread and not entirely on message for the house style herein but plenty to mull over. Real food seems to be at the heart of most messages about what is best for us. Interestingly, picks up on @Barba_Rossa implied about meal replacement so maybe not of topic. I also seem to remember @Viv19 and I had a PM chat around this and my own hobbyhorse re modern farming and food bearing no resemblance to traditional breeds, seeds and methods. I particularly liked the phrase locavore (says the man who eats plenty of avocados) - posh word for farmer's markets?

Left my washing out last night......
Is that what my problem is then, 4.6 is the lowest I have ever been (once) and that achieved through IF.
Agree nothing wrong with 5.8 fasting.
I always found BG levels dropped rapidly when using meal replacement shakes. Depends which make, I guess. Ones I used gave total of under 50g carbs a day. Maybe I should give them another go, as I had another 7.2 fasting this morning.
Edit: Just to say, I prefer real low carb food, but somrthing is not working right at the moment. Also, I regard the meal replacements as ‘medicine / nutritional aids’ rather than food. After 15+ years of pre diabetes and T2, perhaps my fasting levels / HbA1c are as good as they are going to get? Maybe pancreas is giving up? Sometimes the tide cannot be held back, and acceptance is not failure, merely time to find an alternative way of coping. Though I hate the thought of more meds.
Don't think the Newcastle Diet worked for me but I think that was my naivety. Lived on homemade soup and light meals but didn't realise I needed to include a little fat. Only had one shake in the 8 weeks I was on it, think it was an atkins shake but was pleasantly surprised at how full I felt after it. I wasn't checking bloods at the time so don't know how it affected me. If it is ok to ask the question bearing in mind the theme of the thread and I don't want to derail, can you give me an idea of what your blood levels were at the time you were doing Newcastle Diet. Was thinking of trying a few shakes but frightened off by the level of carbs, but as you say they have a nutritional value.
A 5.2 for me to start the weekend. Happy with that! Have a great day everyone.
6.5 for me
4.4 this morning.
HR 57 BPM, BP 98/63
7.2 for me this morning after a spike of 2.6 yesterday my blood just doesn't seem to want to come down and to top it off I feel a bit ******, like I'm getting a cold
Oh well, happy Saturday everyone!
It will have had an extra rinse then
A better result this morning with a 6.8 I seem to be hovering ( nearly put hoovering then mind u that would be nice if you could "hoover up extra blood sugar "lol ) between high 6's and low 7's which isn't brilliant but it's an improvement on the 8's and 9's that I was having .
5.0 today. Bracing myself for the storm that’s about to batter our small island Have a great day everyone.
I don't think I is derailing, as we are discussing fasting levels and what affects them.
I am away from home at the moment and don't have access to my detailed data, but 8 years ago I used meal replacement products after trying for 6 years to follow the NHS advice Eatwell plate to lose weight and get T2 controlled, with no success. I was severely obese and getting worse. Fasting BG was often 8.0 to 9.0, and 2 hours post prandial was higher, sometimes double figures. My fasting levels dropped to 5 or below within days of starting the Total food replacement. I also lost a lot of weight.
I always suggest that anyone thinking of following the Newcastle diet method should first of all read the research papers. Also plan and get support. Most important to have follow on eating plan, too.
Oops, almost forgot, this morning fasting level 6.5.
Think I forgot to post my FBG this morning, which was 5.7.
A nice round 5.0 for me this morning. Also a 0.5kg drop in weight after a couple of days with no movement on the scales (yes I’m one of those daily weighers - sorry not sorry!)
Have a great Sunday everyone.
5.6 for me enjoy whats left of the weekend
5.0 again for me today. It's rather cool outside this morning since the overnight rain. Have a great day everyone.
