    I did my first 24 hr fast for over a month finishing it at 6.30pm tonight. Before I ate my BS levels were 8.7 (low 6's last night) So the cold is making my BS higher I presume.
    I took paracetamol last night before bed and just now to try and get rid of the toothache type symptoms from my sinuses hurting.
    Realised at teatime I'd only had a small creamy coffee at 12noon, so that won't help matters. Now topping up with cold water.

    Awww @berylc it's so lovely to see you back - sorry about your cold. Colds send me high too. Sending strength!
