7.1 this morning, despite (this thread is fast becoming a confessional for me) a mint choc ice on a stick!
I promise to improve!

The choc ice was yesterday evening, not this morning; just read that back and thought it sounded just a tiny bit bonkers!

A very rubbish 11.0. I also had chinese last night and didn't really know how to count the carbs in it so just guessed. But it's my highest reading in weeks so trying not to be too hard on myself.

Massive carbs in Chinese, rice....huge and high fat so still kicking in after insulin has peaked. I used to split dose (when I was on MDI) 3/4 before eating and 1/4 about an hour after eating....worked well for me.

Thank you so much. I was a bit confused as I was 6.7 two hours after the meal, so though I had it spot on but when I tested at night it had gone up to 9.8 so I took a correction and was still high in the morning. Brilliant bit of advise I will put it into action next time.

Hi Guys,

Just back from holiday and was averaging 7.3 in the mornings. However, now we're back to reality and whole load of new stressors, my numbers have been high in the low 9's and high 8's. Wondering if it could be hormones and stress as been feeling weepy and emotional? Haven't been eating anything different but have IBS symptoms too? P's have stopped again and I am on only 1 x Metformin which I keep forgetting to take! What a failure!!

Forgot to add, that numbers seem to come to low 5's in the late afternoon. Can't figure this one out. Maybe I should take the Metformin with breakfast instead of with evening meal?

I had problems remembering to take mine as well, what I did in the end was write the day on each pill. So at a glance I can see if I've forgotten anything or not.

Of course, then you have to remember to look at the pills to check if you took them or not.

Hi Donna, Sorry you are feeling so rotten :(. Stress can cause your numbers to rise and could possibly be causing the IBS but Metformin can also cause "tummy problems". I am not on Metformin so can't suggest when to take it, but I was under the impression if you were only on one it was taken with the largest meal of the day? I would make an appointment with the doctor/dsn to see if they could help. x
