    Hi Alan and welcome. That meal was a great start! FBG should be measured first thing before you move about or eat.

    I'm with you today @PenguinMum 6.1 today. Looks like the Aldi gluten free chocolate bar treat I had, which is only supposed to be 5.something grams of carbs per bar is not something for me to try again. Bloods were still 6.7 four hours later. Forgot to test earlier, but dread to think what they may have been at the 2 hour point.

    Hi everyone, I’m fairly new to all this only been diagnosed two weeks ago.

    However have seen a drop in fbg from the mid 7s to now 6.5s! This is following a low carb approach.

    So 6.5 today!

    But yes can’t wait to be a regular on this as it’s really amazing how we all can support eachother!

    Wishing you all a great bank holiday 3 day weekend well I guess had? Hehe but we still have some hours left so enjoy it! :)
