    What was your highest and lowest reading today?
    Lowest: 138 mg/dl
    Highest: 191 mg/dl
    Not the best control, I try to achieve a tighter control with highest being 175 mg/dl but still increasing Lantus.

    Yesterday lowest was about 4 sometime in the middle of the night, highest was 17 about 2-3 hours after breakfast - thanks Novosluggish!
    Today lowest was about 4 a bit before I woke up and highest was 11 about 2 hours after breakfast and is back down to about 6 now (4 hours after breakfast) - noting that the breakfast was exactly the same as yesterday.

    Today's low: 3.6 at 01.18.
    Today's high: 5.1 after breakfast at 08.27.
    CGM now reading 6.4 (haven't done a fingerstick since 08.27).
    In times past, I've swung between 19 and 1.9 on the same day. (That was before keto, though.)
