Wednesday 2 November 2011

Well it's been quite a while since my last update but I am pleased to say this is a positive post for a change.

I have now started on my new medication and can definitely see a change in my eating habits.  I am not hungry all the time and have virtually stopped snacking between meals which is not like me.  The most amazing thing happened yesterday, I opened a packet of biscuits and ate one biscuit!  I know this probably sounds ridiculous but normally I would eat half if not the entire packet!!

I've been testing my blood a lot more at least three times a day although mainly before lunch time so I just need to start testing in the afternoons and evenings as well.  Best of all when I am testing all of my readings have been below 10mmol/l which is a great improvement for me.

Will have to see if the success continues but keep your fingers crossed!
