    Today
    6.1 to 6.1

    The 6.1 before lunch was due to a late morning walk and consequent liver dump.

    5.5 before and 4.8 after. I had one of those days where I just felt like snacking so I had a couple of slices cheese, a piece of bacon with a dollop of sour cream, a large handful of sf choc chips and a cup of pepsi max.

    Well I last ate @ 7:30 am and my count was 14.6 when I woke up this morning, was feeling hungry now (its 11:10) now but was feeling really tired? So went and took my sugar count .... Its 25.5?? Just lost me appetite..... Wondering if maybe its the chewable folic acid & vit b12 tablet I took an hour ago? Will take my blood sugar again @ 14:00 .....

    I am ?type 1 ? type 2, no one can seem to make up there mind. I am on an insulin pump, best thing I ever did.
    Went to bed at 8.4. Woke this morning with 6.7 before breakfast. My usual breakfast is Nutrigrain with light milk and coffee with sweetner. 1 hour after breakfast = 9.8. 2hrs after = 11.7. May have to look at changing my cereal.

    Hi bambee and clive ...at the moment, no meds, only hubby working at moment, so sadly no medical aid, I buy Victoza when we have some of a financial gap here and there? You would be shocked if you saw our government hospitals? And they would just put me on insulin!! Which I know is not necessary right now! When I find work again, I will go back to my diabetic DR .... I just need to watch what I eat .... Its a little difficult when you have a certain budget to adhere to to make it through the month. Starch and sugar is in most of my monthly groceries. But thanks for caring B-)
