    9.3. I'm not sure why it's going up. Started lchf just over 2 weeks ago and I have gained 2lb. Levels before and after meals have only been above 8 once during the past fortnight (after black pudding).

    6.1 after another successful night of sleeping. I was running low before bed and had two slices of Dutch spice cake (ontbijtkoek) before bed. Glad to see I made the right call. :D

    Mine was 11.9. High I know but I've just started insulin and it's coming down slowly until I get my dose right

    Thank you very much Cumberland for your advice and nice welcome.
    I thought I would send you an update after my phone appointment with the Diabetic Nurse. She was very nice but doesn't have any home visit appointments until 27th March, so she is sending me some info so I can look at possibly having injections, looking at non insulin first. If she has any home visits available, I'll get it.
    Sadly, my agoraphobia has stopped me attending the surgery for several years and the thought of it, brings on panic attacks.
    Until the home visit, I am to stay on Metformin and Sitagliptin. Thanks again. xx

    Two E8 errors on my new meter this morning-looked them up and it said that the strip could not fill-although the meter beeps when the strip is full then and calculates BG reading. It beeped and looked like it was calculating both times. I decided that maybe I was dehydrated and so had my morning coffee and breakfast.

    Further research directed me to push a button to eject used strips instead of just pulling them out of meter. I pushed the button and changed the strip disk and then I tested again and found that I was at 11.11 or 200 mg/dl. A little high but stress always brings my BG up. Will try again later.
