    Yesterday I had some strange readings, highest was fbg of 7.5. I tested before evening meal, which is usually my lowest reading and it was 7.9 on TEE2. I washed my hands and tested again on TEE2+ and it was 7.5.
    Two hours after evening meal, which is usually my highest, it was 6.3!
    I can only guess that my high pre-meal reading was due to liver dump as I had eaten very little (one small samosa and an onion bhaji at 4pm) during the day.

    Yesterday's lowest reading was 5.8 before evening meal. Highest was 7.4 two hours later. I had eaten the same evening meal as the previous night (results above), bowl of soup, two small vegetable samosas, and slice of apple pie with double cream.
