    Nuts and cheese and cream. My low carb nemesis! I have to choose between BG and figure these days. No wrinkles to speak of as face is chubbed out on the nuts, cheese and cream. Ok, have given up the cream some three weeks ago. If only I could reduce the nuts and cheese. One step at a time… Oh and with a run of 5s at 5.7 today, I don’t want to chance making any changes, arm.
    Keep on keeping on folks. All we can do, really.:)

    Thanks. He’s better than he was but gets waves of sickness as a side effect of his thyroid meds and it’s usually in the dead of night!

    Everything was a rush this morning so didn’t test, but just checked and the results of my HBA1c is in, after halving my metformin in January it has remained at 38, so expecting a phone call from the nurse over the next day or two and coming off metformin.

    I hope that gives some encouragement to some of the regulars on this page, particularly those who are fairly recently diagnosed, keep following the advice from the more experienced members, it works !
