    Has been between 9 and 11, just started metformin (500g in evening) and it went up to 13! drops to about 7 during the day. I hope metformin will work combined with renewed rigour in reduced carbs. BMI is 24 but had a partial pancreatectomy a few months ago which means control by diet alone is now very difficult and may not be possible

    Hello again, everyone. I am going to try to check and post every morning again, since I am now on a serious search for a local doctor to refill meds, etc. This morning I was very happy to see a 6.8, which is a nice change from the last time I checked my FBG.

    8.6 this morning. Suspect it has something to do with a stressful day at work yesterday and a bad nights sleep last night as I was on call and got woken up a couple of times over night

    Hi Bren I had a distal pancreatectomy 8 years ago and take Creon with food as I imagine you may do also. I got dxd T2 three years ago and manage LC usually sub 30g a day but it took a while to adjust everything. My numbers are higher atm because I am getting over Covid. Good luck finding what works best for you.
