    My highest reading was 12.1 last night after a pizza. I was tired and couldnt be bothered cooking.

    I am T2 but not taking the metformin because it makes me so ill so I am trying to control by diet. Am hoping this blip wont have too big an impact on my first 3 month review at the end of March. Been achieving 4.2 - 6.9 most days.

    31 and it is not pleasant - this was the day I was diagnosed and was sent straight to the hospital. They were a complete waste of time. I left with a pack of stuff and had not even injected before, had not even been told how much to inject, and my level was still raging when they threw me out. Someone was in my bed before I left the buidling.

    16 after glucose test at time of being diagnosed, for doctor to confirm.

    11 thereafter, after eating popcorn.

    Off medication I'm regularly over 33. My meter doesn't tell me exactly what after that. Although to be honest I feel better up there than I do when I'm in the safe zone. Ignorance really was bliss.

    45+. I had a terrible GP back then and he rang after my visit to the surgery and said "I'm just ringing to see if you're still alive" aww how nice of him thinks me, until he said "the lab rang and said your blood glucose reading was 45+". I felt fine which was scary.

    25 at diagnosis with DKA in the hospital. ICU nurses told me that the highest they had seen was 99 (mmol/l)- undisguised T1 who had decided to treat lack of energy with lots of Lucozade.
