    4.6 at 6AM and 5.6 just now at 7AM and this while I am 36 hours into fasting.

    I am torn between continuing fasting or not. I will perhaps observe how readings are between 10AM to 12PM before eating anything. That was the time yesterday when all the readings were above 7.6.

    Have a wonderful day everyone. :)

    4.4 on Libre this morning. First HBA1C check (since diagnosis) on Friday. Hoping for good progress.

    7.0 this morning and 7.5 yesterday. Had a bit of an accident last night when I took too much Lantus on top of a correction earlier in the evening, my sugars plummeted (2.1) and I was feeling pretty grim. Shovelled dried fruit down until my sugars were about 7.0 (didn't want to risk another hypo). Very unpleasant half an hour or so, but bang on 7 this morning so not too much the worse for the experience.

    An unwelcome 6.6 today. I had a spoonful of lentil dhal with lamb curry last night. No BG reaction to it so I was very happy. Libre has flatlined all night until half hour ago when it appears to have remembered those lentils and is climbing up and up. It’s now in the orange zone!

    Welcome and well done on your great progress so far @[email protected]
    Thanks for sharing @nutribolt and I agree the stress of seeing higher numbers can be self perpetuating.
    @HeliGary great post 5 Guys result, especially including the chips and milkshake.
    I love your explanation for pva 5s @Pipp hope you see them soon.

    Not been around much.
    Spent most of last Thursday at Ninewells attached to EGC's and various tests after an arrhythemia. Nothing to worry about seems to have been the conclusion. Heart always been showing irregular patterns...

    FBG have been all over the place.
    7 6.1
    8 6.2
    9 5.0
    10 4.8
    11 4.3
    12 5.8
    13 5.4

    The low days were possibly down to missing out lunch completely and very light dinners.

    Take care one and all.

    7.0 today. Very late, as I was so sleepy, and so comfy under the duvet.
    Don’t feel like having food, so perhaps a bit of fasting is the order of the day.

    Thank you @ianpspurs - won't be trying that one again in a hurry. Not even for virtual hugs from nice gentlemen!

    Yes, its a week today. Trying to stick to around 800 cals which includes eating low cal plus having a keto shake now and again. I don't know how long it will last though as I just don't have the same motivation as previous. Last time it was simply a case of counting calories, this time its counting calories and keeping to low carb which is a whole new ball game. I may check my cholesterol tomorrow to see if the different way of eating is doing any good. Its certainly helping my FBGs. Oops, shouldn't have said that, should I? Tempting fate. ;)

    Hello all,

    Missed posting a couple of days and even forgot to take my fasting blood glucose yesterday. So, 5.2 the day before yesterday and 4.5 today.

    @[email protected] -- Welcome to the thread.
    @JohnEGreen -- Good fasting numbers, they seem to be coming down nicely.
    @Ryhia -- I am in awe of your self-control. 800 cals and low carb is quite an achievement.
    @Providence 62 -- Hugs for the hypo.
    @hankjam -- Hugs for a week of poking and prodding, but what a relieve that the test showed that there is nothing to worry about.
