I've lost 9lbs (in a week!) and my BG has come down from 8.3 last week (not good) to 5.4 today....that's normal, non-diabetic level (anything below 5.6 is normal level...husband's is 4.7). Husband has lost 5lbs. I will continue to monitor my fasting BG and if it stays at normal levels for another week or so, will make an appointment to see my specialist diabetes nurse with a view to coming off my medication.
I'm not going to be always going on about the diet here, that's not what this blog is about, but it is part of my life and a very important part right now.
