    ood morning all,

    Fasting levels were 6.1 today -- seems as if sleeping in seems to lead to slightly higher levels for me.

    Just saw a remarkable sequence about polar bears and diabetes today. The speaker said that scientists are interested in studying polar bears to find ways of dealing with diabetes -- as the bears seem to have unusually stable blood sugar levels. Scientists were surprised at this, since polar bears eat meat and lots of fat. :banghead: (They actually continued saying if humans ate as much fat as polar bears, we wouldn't survive.:banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead: -- they also never seem to have to have heard about the "classic" ketogenic diet for epilepsy where sufferers have about derive 80% of their calories from fat and live to tell about it.)

    6.1 - Much, much better. I haven’t had this morning number for a month. And today, I’m off to the “Tooth Doctor” - oh joy…. 6.1, yay!

    Right . . . I've just had my HBA1C results and they now put ME into NORMAL, not PRE-DIABETIC, but NORMAL. Why do I mention this, because at the same time I've almost eradicated my Carb intake, swapping it out for the LCHF diet ( which I'm not too keen on) and, being dead scared of raising my Chlorestorel levels!! But guess what?: My Chlorestorel levels are normal and whilst I've been on this LCHF diet (did I say I'm not keen on it?) they have gone DOWN!

    So here's the Skinny:
    HBA1C - DOWN > NORMAL
    Cholesterol
    - DOWN > NORMAL

    OCCAM'S Razor? I must be a Polar Bear.

    So near and yet so far from getting "back in the green" - 6.0 this morning. It is creeping ever closer until the day I send up the green flares again as a celebration. We keep on keeping on for that day.

    Come to think of it, I've never seen Clark Kent (Kal-El) eat a Cornish Pasty. Huh!
