Well, DH had his first appointment at the diabetic clinic. The nurse was helpful and very encouraging. She gave him a blood sugar monitor and told him to see our doctor who will decide whether to start him on meds or try to reduce his blood sugar by diet alone. When he went to the clinic his blood sugar was 11.9, 2 hours after breakfast (porridge) and later, before evening meal it had gone down to 6.3. We are not sure what is good yet. The only thing we do know is that after 6 and a half weeks of trying to keep to low carb foods, he still feels very tired, headachey and just wants to doze all day, until bedtime.

Bye for now.
