    7.7 last night 8.5 this morning. Not too bad as I'm trying to introduce a couple of rounds of toast for supper so I'm not so flipping hungry in the evenings!

    4.9 last night
    8.3 plus a 1.45 correction at 5am
    and a 7.4 at 7:20am

    those slight downwards in my basals have overdone it

    @GeorgeWBaker I think there's a similar type 2 thread, but then again you're on insulin so I'm not sure which would be best for you. BTW you don't look 91! :)

    9.3 last night before bed, 12.4 this morning :oops:

    Went to bed at 4.6. Woke up at 4am at 10.3. Realised from the trace that I'd forgotten to extended bolus the chips :(. Back to 6.6 by 7am though.

    5.6 going to bed. 2.7 waking. I actually felt high when i woke, had to test on a different machine to check, that said 3.8.

    TDD usually 20ish, yesterday 14.55. I'm running so low, maybe I'm cured? Maybe I've cannulated a muscle & I'm getting intra-muscular insulin, is that a thing?

    8mmol/L at 2300, 1u correction and 5.4mmol/L this morning...

    Sounds good but dipped low <3mmol/L last night according to Libre. The usual DP was thus accompanied by a liver dump and has overridden my usual 1u morning correction leaving me at 7.8mmol/L currently.

    Still tinkering with my basal dose as I've dropped daily carb intake to 100g as of Wednesday. So far basal has been reduced from 30u to 18u and needs a bit more off yet.

    Keep up the good work:)
