    Are you a diabetic? I love biscuits too but never eat them anymore. You might as well eat a dozen packs of sugar.

    Nope. Fit as a fiddle except for a little high blood pressure.
    Packets of sugar don't taste as nice. lol

    Sometimes make me own biccies, sugar is substituted with tagatesse (brand name for tagatose sweetener), you can't tell they're zero sugar.

    And they taste better than stuff from the shop.

    Just got results back from blood taken yesterday and A1C down to 5.7, fasting level at 81mg/dl or 4.5 mmol/l but 3.8-4.0 mmol normal before first morning brew, so Metformin cut in half to 1 850mg pill per day.

    Oh, LDL down to "borderline high" at 158. Statin dose to be cut in half, Coversyl to protect heart no longer needed.

    Not bad for a mere 5 months since diagnosis.

    I plan on all of that being lower for next test in 3 months, but if it's ok with you I'll stick to what I'm doing...

    I doubt the a1c will be lower but there is no need to try. below 6 is great.
