    I do hope your cat is recovering well, IWTYC. It's awful when one's animal is ill.

    5.2 today, 6 days no metformin, seems to be working so far.

    6.2, but had less cheese earlier last night. Hoping it comes down on its own over the next few months.

    7.6 (after an overnight cautious correction) my own fault - should have skipped dessert instead of miscalculating it.

    @Estragon, yes, I know the reason. Too much sugar to relieve hypoglycemia. This is usually for me, but it's still sad :(

    @PenguinMum Thanks, I'm ok now

    Really appreciate your willingness to share - thank you. Tell me, is that free sugar or carbs or both?

    Yeah, I’ve maybe drunk a pint of fruit juices over two years? My personal Kryptonite are any any carbostiens: rice, potatoes, pasta and bread. I’m sure others - visitors - reading this will be getting the “picture”. Again, thanks for sharing.
