    Oh Ally, that is a lovely result. Just compare it to your very early ones. Very well done, and especially so after the extra stresses you had in the past few months. :)

    Ally, bearing in mind all your challenges recently, I'll be saying a big well done. That its down on the last one is fabulous.

    When all said and done, we can each only do our best, and I'm sure you've done your best. We all have days when it all seems a bit much, but don't dwell on those, because they're gone and you can't change them.

    well done on getting it lower Ally <3

    it could have been much higher with the dawn phenomenon you are burdened with

    I also take some medication that may keep my blood glucose higher all the time. the quetiapine, but I need this medication , in fact, this medication is the reason why I thrive otherwise (maybe it is the reason why I got diabetes in the first place... but well I don´t have half the trouble getting my numbers low as you obviously struggle with...I just can´t get back into the fives..which I would like to
    but keep your focus on the low or very low carb eating style, and the intermittent fasting, some claim that the 8 hour window of eating is what has helped them the most in lowering blood glucose in general..

    I am also on Quetiapine. It helps my bipolar but does have an effect on my levels.
