5.7 for me higher than normal . Still feeling like I’ve been hit by a bus following my Covid vaccine
Took me until 4pm the day after I’d had mine to feel ok. And mine was at 9am.

It's a lovely sunny morning here in Berkshire, a complete contrast to the awful wet & windy weather I know that some are getting. My fasting BG is still stubbornly refusing to drop back to where it usually is as I have a 6.2 again this morning. Felt a bit washed out on waking, so stayed in bed a while longer. Feel fine now after a shower and breakfast and my temperature is normal.

Dentist this afternoon so he can take a look at my loose crown. Didn't give me any trouble during the night and isn't niggling this morning but since it's loose it needs sorting. Wary of chewing that side.

@Snowwy - that's great news. Pleased for you.

Happened to see a doctor privately today who asked me if I had any underlying conditions. Mentioned the T2 of course.
Later he asked me to detail any meds/supplements etc and I mentioned the metformin 500mg once a day.
Literally just dawned on me that he said “OK so that’s right at the start of your diabetes journey I’m assuming...” and moved right on.

He was assuming that there’s an inevitability in increased dosage and more medication for the diabetes over time.
The surprising thing is that he couldn’t have been more than 5 years max out of med school and he’s already responding to diabetes in a well established medication only mindset.
I wasn’t seeing him for anything related to the diabetes but it struck me as a real shame that someone so young is already so set in their ways.
There does seem to be a view in the NHS that Type 2 is progressive. Maybe it is for those who are disinclined for one reason or another to sort out their lifestyle.

Well I am with you @Kaylz on the 9.2 step. Sorry to hear Bruce isn't being as supportive as you would have hoped.
Felt really ill yesterday. Whole upper body ached and I really struggled just to do basic chores. Had regular Ibuprofen which took the edge off it but was hard to live with when they wore off. Slept poorly and woke up feeling like I had a hangover but without the enjoyment of alcohol or Chinese the preceding evening! Don't think it is the vaccine as that was well over a week ago. I worked really hard on Sunday and it was all upper body work, Grooming filthy horses, sweeping the yard (really heavy work) and breaking up heavy compressed manure and loading trailer and then unloading. All heavy arms, shoulders, back and obliques work so I guess I just overdid it. Felt like someone hit me in the ribs with a sledge hammer or a horses hoof yesterday and today. I need to get back at it soon as I have another 2 manure customers waiting! Didn't make it to the shops yesterday and I am completely out of chicken feed and getting low on cat food and Barbara food, so must get my act together today!

@Snowwy
Many congratulations on your excellent result and remission status. Hope you will stay with us!

Congrats @Snowwy and @Gwynn and go for it @ColinUK

Have figured out how to stay on my feet for 15 minutes after each meal... wash the paintwork with wipes. It's a killer, all that bending down, but at least I wouldn't be sat on my derriere. :) The bungalow is a midden, soon it will be a new pin!

Morning all,
Sooo, I had a telephone consultation with my Diabetes Nurse yesterday on the results of my recent blood tests...

And...
It appears I am officially now IN REMISSION from diabetes!

HbA1c was again 40 and so that is under the threshold for a whole year.
A bit stunned really!

Blessings Snowwy
Well done!

5.5 this morning.

Not sure I can wholeheartedly agree with that. The DN where I work, who is sadly leaving, is very up-to-date and on the ball. I chatted with her recently regarding my waking levels as they are all over the place. I know I eat more carbs than many of you but they are a fraction of what I used to eat, my weight is steady and so far my HbA1c has only risen a little. She said that T2’s do find that their levels increase with time and it can depend on your natural size, weight and how foods react to you as an individual. I don’t consider I am disinclined to sort out my lifestyle, not that I’m taking your comment as a personal affront, but I do think we must remember that we are all individuals and what works for one is not necessarily working for another. Just my opinion and no offence intended.

None taken. My DN is very enlightened (she even gave me a meter), my GP less so and the person running the xPERT course I went on not at all.

Have to say that this doctor wasn’t a GP but a specialist in something as far removed from diabetes as probably humanly possible.
What surprised me was:
A) he looked far too young to be a doctor
B) he just said that diabetes related remark completely without thought

He was exceptionally cute though so I’d have forgiven him most things if he’d asked :)
