    Hi philchap1 I do intermittent fasting try skipping 1 meal drink plenty, what I'm struggling with is weight loss and inch loss. At bedtime last night after a 24 hr fasting I was 4.3 only ate my evening meal gammon 2 veg water and cups of coffee throughout the day. But nothing after 5 pm only drinks,but I'm guessing due to sugar dump in morning BG 4.7 I am no different to others on here we all struggle with something but you have to try because the alternatives are terrifying.

    Antibiotics raise blood sugar, so don't worry. All will be fine!
