    It's now 6 weeks since I was diagnosed with type 2 and I've been trying so hard to be Lchf and I was starting to see levels 5/6s even the odd 4 but for the past few days I've seen a rise in bg mostly 6/7s which I believe is due to work stress and its so disheartening as I was doing so well!
    Now I'm starting to worry about my levels, as well as the work stress

    Hi Starfish,
    6/7 isn't to bad, I'm sure you will soon be back to your normal levels.
    Have you altered your diet at all?
    Try some relaxation for the stress.
    Take care

    No, not altered my diet. I hope so.
