That graph look beautiful to me. Maybe you have hit the "sweet spot" in terms of food and insulin dosing?

It definitely is baffling! Mind you, at my age I find myself confused most of the time. And the rest of the time I am completely baffled.
Do we all rely on tech too much? I remember when I was first diagnosed on Friday 13th January, 1967, that I had to experience a couple of hypos just to ensure I could recognise the signs and know what to do. I still get very good warning signs and I am usually approximately 20 minutes ahead of sensor. I can then gloat and shout at sensor! I sometimes even show it what I have eaten.
I still maintain you are doing very well!

Not being on holiday....
Although i often out think the sensor as it is behind (libre) and i get a bit smug about it.....

"why is it doing that" is probably my most used 5 words ever used when analysing my readings to the nth degree lol.

OP there are far too many variables when comparing one day to the next so don't dwell on it just digest it.
Some wise person pointed out that diabetics are the best analysists on the planet and i agree with that.

I embrace new tech though and the alarm going off in the night is not a nuisance its a life saver and i would have loved this tech 50 years ago.

4mm needles should never be taken for granted either.

I wish you all well

Mountain out of mole hill makers ,queues , crowds , shopping on a Saturday hmm just shopping I guess no matter what day it is
Eating same thing taking same amount of insulin , getting different blood sugar readings , that’s the anomaly of diabetes , these days I don’t question it , it just happens , it just proves that it not just about taking insulin and eating, many other things affect blood sugar readings , as long as my readings stay between 5 and 9 I’m happy if they are outside that ( which these days is rare ) I don’t panic.I just deal with it , no matter how hard we try we are never going to get perfect blood sugars all the time

Whilst I would like diabetes to be an exact science, unfortunately it isn't, and I can only do the best I can, and keep on learning.

@Neckarski_94

I echo what others are saying, you are doing really well.
Your most recent graphs are very similar to some of mine. I am T2 not on insulin and my own BGs don't always make sense either, there's so many variables.

More hypo thoughts.
In the past I have found it even more frustrating when I have overcorrected a hypo and then swung rapidly to hyper.
