    maybe if your inflamation in your body has gone down be using Naproxen then your fasting blood glucose will maybe also go down

    I posted this in the other thread Liam - http://www.webmd.com/diet/news/20140917/artificial-sweeteners-blood-sugar#1 to back up your theory. A lesson to many here!

    Also Naproxen seems not to raise nor lower presumably fasting blood sugar - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1401608/ However you body maybe in less pain with taking it so less stress and therefore less sugar in your blood.

    Hi folks. Started on my pre and apres dinner blood letting week today. One little bitty incy wincy, barely noticeable mistake. When making dinner DO NOT continually sample the sauce and food your cooking EVEN if your just making sure everything is fine. Never trust a skinny chef sounds so true.

    Any hoo, here are the readings :- 10.0 mmol pre dinner
    After my meal of salad and fish :- 9.4 mmol One hour after dinner
    Thankfully tomorrow is a new day and I can start all over again.

    Onwards and downwards.

    You learn so fast! It took many of us years to figure out that every bite when you are cooking does add to your blood glucose.

    6.2 5 am 100 min walk last night obviously didn't bring it to 4.5.
    Maybe it's getting abit worse.
    Too much strong coffee as usual in serious trouble with the doc over it goto make a plan about it.

    After the mistake with "sampling " the dinner whilst cooking, I decided to have a wee glass of wine with "She who must be obeyed" and the daughter. 4 glasses later I tottered off to bed and expected the worst this morning.

    Taa Daa, my bloods were 6.9 mmol at 7:50 am.

    Now where have I hid those bottles of wine. :)

    Onwards and downwards.

    Mine was up again this morning - last 3 days 4.9, 5.7, 6.2. I really don't understand why it is going up and can only think the day before's carbs has an impact - had about 60g yesterday compare to 38 on Sunday. Can anyone comment on their experience, please as this is still new. Thanks

    I was only diagnosed just over a month ago
