    Thanks Didie

    The doc's been fantastic - my post breakfast reading was 23.8, that was 3 hours later! She also checked my sugars and I was at the highest end of the spectrum, no Ketones though and no signs of infection (I'll need to read up on that...).

    So waiting for a call (she's going to speak to the Diabetologist for guidance) - I won't go further as I don't want to hijack this thread - but there's further details and updates via another topic I posted in the discussions forum re: post op readings :)

    If it wasn't for the meter nothing I'm feeling would have made me go the doc....and then what? Rushed to A&E? I shudder to think.

    but I did lose 2 lbs at Weightwatcher last night and treated myself to 2 oz of chocolate buttons. Must only have 1 oz next time......

    5.2 at 08:00 this morning.

    Also got on the scales, and have lost another 3lbs despite all the wine and higher carbs during my relative-visiting last week. Mind you, I've stopped eating fruit this week. I was eating too much summer fruit for a few weeks, putting me up to about 70/80g carb, so I'm back now to about 25g carb daily.

    And the sun is shining! :D

    I think summer fruit is responsible for my increase in levels too although I am usually within 25-40g carbs per day. Will be better in the winter I hope.
