110 this morning. Never is over 120 but also very seldom under 100. Take one met 500 each morning and eat well staying in 130's ppd. Should I be concerned about fasting #'s ?

Your met dose is the bare minimum, Born - has your doc ever suggested raising it? I take 2500mg per day - 1500 morning & 1000 bedtime.

Without more information, it's not easy to say much for certain but I'll make a few observations for you to consider:
  • Fasting figures are frequently the last to go wrong and equally the last to come back down. So possibly early days.
  • Your metformin dose is still at the 'startup' level and it may need a bigger dose to have impact (max is 2,000))
  • Have you reviewed the carbohydrate content of your meals on the lookout for hidden extra carbs?
As I said, just things to consider. But stay with it, your numbers can be improved but they're not wildly bad at the moment.

Thanks for the input. I am pretty good on my carbs. Limit to 6 at breakfast and 12 at lunch and dinner. I am running a 5% carb, 20-25 % protein and 70- 75% fats. I will see the Doc in three weeks. Been on LCHF for about 3 months. My last A1C was 7.2 in Feb 2014. At that time my fasting was usually over 150's . been a "pre" for about 10 years but oly found this site in March. I plan on asking the Doc about another 500 at dinner.

159 this morning.

Yesterday's high having finally revealed itself as a pump occlusion - my own fault as I'd tried making do with partially folded adhesive on that pod (infusion set). Glucose was back to normal by the early afternoon once it was changed.

Philip, many thanks for reminding me of Tebaldi! I recall seeing her at the Metropolitan as Minnie in La Fanciulla del West following a well-publicized vocal crisis in the mid-70s. Along with Franco Corelli and Mario Sereni, they leant new meaning to the term "spaghetti western." She was known for having "dimples of iron" referring to her method of dealing with stage directors, conductors and tenors.

Barbara, good call on the Ambien, but I don't take the stuff, the result of an unfortunate episode in hospital.

Crankincraig, you're sure not kidding! Those nights also keep the lovely and gracious Dr. Laura up as well as my dog, Sam.

Back to normal today, my good friends...

92 this morning

Vacation is over. Now, to see if I can maintain those 70s and 80s when I do my own cooking!

95 (5.3) Expecting some cooler weather for the next few days (mid 80's). My BH and I are planning to "blow some bubbles" over the 4th weekend at Balmorhea, TX. Our anniversary is the fourth, and I got her a GoPro Hero 3+ video camera for underwater filming "she is a picture taking nut".

@Tamagno, glad you figured out why you had that high BG reading.

@nancy Welcome Back

Glad to see that things have improved from the other day for you.

As far as your infusion set , yup just another variable ( I guess you could call it that ) we get to deal with. I have only had it happen to me a couple times , the first time I waited to do anything about and woke up off the charts , after learning from that I took the bull by the horns a lot sooner before it became an issue.

Enjoy this hot and humid day we have ahead of us.
