OT: Barry & Anyone Else - Insulin

|I remember that we discussed this last year. Not sure about the not eating until late afternoon bit, as I'd be flat on my back with a hypo by then! I follow (or try to!) a low-carb diet, that is under 130 g of carbs per day. It has worked pretty well,losing a fair few kilos and maintaining a steady Hb1AC level of around 42 (maybe there is a different standard used elsewhere). My progress has been approved by clinics in both Ireland and UK (I was a bit of a star in Ireland!) and, most important, I feel ok on it.|
I don't eat anything particularly special, just smaller portions and as little starchy food as possible without cutting them out completely. It is a bit complicated by being vegetarian but seems to work ok. Now, of course, I have to manage all that without my in-house dietician but I know that she's watching me, wherever she is, so I'm pretty careful!
Now off to do a few kilometres on the exercise bike in preparation for some riding in Franken, I hope!
