For over eight years my diabetes medication has not changed. My weight has remained stable, I have suffered no ill effects from my diet whatsoever. Every blood test has proved, I took the right road to my diabetic salvation. For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !

    Kudos to you for admitting you had a small slip up so don't beat yourself up about it as we're all human and best avoid the meter for tonight as carbs in conjunction with fat can give you a spike @4-5 hours...Back to business as usual tomorrow and all should be well. Smile
