    Morning All. Tale of two days..6.6 today after disturbed night and oversleeping till 8 which is unheard of. Work in progress. @Serah Wanjiku welcome to the forum. Stick with low carbs esp ditch the starches and you will soon see better numbers though be aware FBG is the trickiest one.

    last three mornings have been:

    5.3

    I'm not sure if after 7 years of morning tests I've ever had three on the trot the same.

    Hope all is good with you, take care

    4.94 average this week. A very slight increase. BUT an OGT a couple of days ago gave a 2 hour result of 8.2. I am absolutely delighted! 2 weeks and four days earlier it was 9.3. That's a big drop in such a short time! Prof Taylor's subjects did not get back to nearly normal insulin production til 12 months after starting the diet, though they had long since finished dieting.
    My theory about this is that even once the poor little beta cells stop drowning in the swamp of pancreatic fat, they still have to undergo a recovery time before they start working at nearly full capacity again. It is also possible that geriatric beta cells such as mine, may take longer to recover than those of young people

    Got very late in posting today, had an early shock with horrid readings and then got busy. Reading at 6.30AM was 7.5 and at 8AM it was 8.1.

    It has been in 7s most day today and only now it has come down to 5.6. Thats at 21 hours into fasting and when I did eat yesterday ot was minimal food only so I could take paracetamol.

    The feverish feeling is gone and I haven't taken paracetamol so far. Hopefully things are on the mend.

    Hope everyone had a lovely day. :)

    5.9 this morning but then shot up to 7.7 getting up and then back to school - very slowly dropped to better levels by lunchtime. Who says teaching is good for you?

    @nutribolt and @ianpspurs I hope you both feel better today
    @CotswoldsBloke good luck with the HbA1c, your fbgs have been excellent so I’m sure you’ll have a great result.
