    Just got to share my latest hba1c test result of 5.9 :thumbup:
    On a 'normal' diet with very rare McD or kebab. I have really cut down on chips and sweet stuff, although I could see off a pound of liquorice allsorts or half a dozen mars bars if they were put in front of me, they always were my greatest weakness.
    Cholesterol 0.8 and 1.2 can't remember which was HDL and LDL
    I just need to get my fasting levels below 6.0 more often. Perhaps a second glass of red wine before bed might do it :lol:
