    4.9 today - was about to head off for morning walk when I tripped on a bag left in a ridiculous spot by "helpful" teenager. Horrible feeling I've broken a toe :( So no walk and limping I to work to grovel to boss and then I think it's the walk in centre :(

    T2 Contolled by diet only. No drugs. 7.0 before breakfast. Not bad. It'll go down as the day progresses. Average of all readings for 3mths is 6.6.

    Hi berylc. I sometimes get calf cramp too. It's usually during the early hours, so put it down to dawn phenomenon. Don't think it's unusual...just painful.

    A 5.9 this morning :) :) :) Wasn't great before bed but with a decent sleep I'm more myself. Fast heart beat rearing its ugly head when lying down again. It might be too much levothyroxine again as I've lost approx 4kg in a month. Seeing specialist next week. Hba1c, thyroid, kidneys and liver bloodtest tomorrow morning. Let's see!
