Thanks, I’ll see how it goesIf you don't have a BG meter to test yourself then we would highly recommend it. They are relatively inexpensive to buy a basic model (approx. £15) and whilst the on going purchase of test strips does increase the cost (£8 for a pot of 50 if you buy the SD Gluco Navii or the Spirit Healthcare Tee2) it is well worth the expense and lets face it, most of us have probably spent £8 a week buying rubbish to eat pre diagnosis, so well worth the investment.
In the meantime, try having a very low carb lunch and see if that improves the sleepiness.... something like a large salad with boiled eggs or tuna or chicken and help yourself to plenty of mayonnaise or creamy coleslaw.... Avoid salad cream as it contains sugar and avoid reduced fat products as they are usually higher carb than their full fat alternative and the fat will keep you feeling full for longer. Beware of fruit as it can be high carb, so maybe have a chunk of cheese for afters or a pot of creamy Greek Natural yoghurt with some chopped nuts and seeds in it.
