4.5 this morning.
HR 54 Bpm BP 95/61
7 this morning and did have a takeaway in work last night so not too bad
That all looks like an exemplary set of vital signs to a non expert. Quite enviable.
Hi, Thanks for getting back to me.
I too followed the Eatwell plate, for years as I fit some criteria for having a pre-dispensation for diabetes. Didn't work.
The 800 cals a day diet I did enabled me to lose weight but in my stupidity I was trying to do low carb and low fat, I was also walking on an airwalker for an hour a day. Stupid but keen. Got into difficulties and doc reckoned I had gone into starvation mode as with the exercising doc reckoned I was only getting about 500 cals. Was told to up calorie intake but felt so weak and heart doing all sorts of strange things, abandoned the low cal diet and shifted to low carb/high fat. Still trying to get my energy back. Low carb, practically keto has worked well for me although I don't think I will ever get down to the numbers some people see. What I find difficult is that there are a few things that concern me about the diet, I do not know whether I am getting sufficient nutrients, or what supplements I should be taking, if any. Losing weight is also hit or miss and not in my control, so I did wonder whether to go back to my comfort zone with a couple of weeks of shakes where I know I would get the sufficient nutrients and hopefully continue losing weight. The downside is I don't know what it will do as I may be in ketosis, nor what would happen to my blood sugars bearing in mind the contents of some of these drinks. It was good to note that the shakes brought your blood sugars down. I am still considering. Thanks for sharing.

@ryhopian, I would be very wary if I had had such a bad experience.
Interestingly for me, I recently queried with manufacturers of one brand of meal replacements as to why their nutrition bars had increased in size and calorie load. They told me it was due to European legislation, but didn’t specify what that was. I think it could be that previously people were using 3 meal replacements a day with total calorie intake of 600 calories.
6:00 am 7.5. Back to sleep. 8:00am 6.5.
4.6 for me.
Gave a like but slightly wary it may be on the low side for T1. Hope all is OK.
6.1 this morning
5.5 for me have a good day everyone
5.4 today. Have a great day everyone, try to forget that it’s Monday!
6.4 for me this morning, not great but better than in the 7s which is what I was over the weekend
I do run a tight ship, my Diabetes team are happy, I use the Dexcom G6 so it alarms me if I'm dropping or below 4.1.
5.0 for me, have a good day everyone.
Morning my FBG is 4.6
5.5 for me this morning. It's raining here. Need to take the dogs out. I just have to remember that I'm not about to disolve in the rain.
