    Hi Elaine if you need help give my wife or me a shout. She is judy-in-france and has some nice before and after LCHF photos. No LCHF does not increase your bad cholesterol, though it will boost your good one HDL.

    Today I saw my GP, we had a good talk and he was not concerned that I had three days with a level in the low 3's & a 4 on the 4th day but I ate 2 jelly beans before going to Aqua Aerobics & it didn't go any lower. He said it was just me and not the Metformin that caused the lows. He said come back in 10 days if low BGL's continue.

    I told him about the LCHF diet, he said it may increase my already high chorestrol. Now it is up to me to decide which way to go, continue eating as I am or change to LCHF. Not sure what to do yet.

    This is a new post as my first one was in wrong section.

    I take 2 1000 Metformin tablets a day. My diet is cereal, bread (I have to eat less), 2 pieces of fruit , eggs, meat, vegetables I snack on 4 vita weet biscuits with margarine and vegemite, carrot, capisum, celery with light cheese spread or low fat dip. I don't check my levels every day, that has changed since I had BGL of 3.2, 3.2, 3.3 over 3 days. Anyway I have made an appointment with my Dr. tomorrow to find out what is going on as levels going haywire. I have started taking my BGL before and after meals since yesterday 14th Oct. 3.6 one hour after dinner then 3.3 two hours after dinner. Dinner was Carisma brand (recommended for diabetics), steak & tomato. 15th Oct. Fasting 6.3 Breakfast spaghetti on 1 slice toast. 2 hours after 11.6. Before lunch 8.6. Now that I am going to change my way of eating I hope to improve these levels. I hope I haven't rambled on too much .

    Your experiences with diabetes
    I had symptoms of diabetes for awhile before being diagnosed but didn't recognize them, I went on a cruise and slept through most of the trip, ended up in hospital soon after returning. Left hospital on insulin, got off insulin ended up on it again a year later, got off it again and am hoping to stay off it for ever now.
