    Hi guys.

    Today my A1c came back at 9.2. Its up from 7.1! Ive been struggling with overnight readings and dawn phenomenon but felt I was doing ok. I really try with carb counting and feel so disappointed that my reading was this high. My basal has been changed and im on a much better diet but honestly sometimes as you guys know, diabetes has that way of throwing a curveball and you cant work out why your higher tham expected!

    Sorry for the moan
