    Would expect the liver to start pumping glucose into my system in a few hours, as usual. There's no magic involved, just my lunch apparently not raising my sugars enough to require bolusing for a change, I've had similarly weird days before.

    I have been hovering around mid 6- 7 for most of the day. Would be happy with that... but my preconception clinic want me below 5.8 before every meal...

    *tired of this*

    Have just found this thread and am so, so happy to see that I'm not the only person with Type 1 who has days where BG is up & down like a yo-yo and that 7s are considered an okay reading. I'm involved in a research programme about exercise and Type 1 at the moment and went to a meeting where everyone else seemed to be managing far better than me; HbA1c's within range to get Libre on presecription in our CCG (mine isn't, last one was 63, CCG wants under 58). I had a phone review yesterday with a doctor from the research programme who said that for someone with Type 1 for 32 years, 63 was pretty good. It was the first time for ages that I haven't felt as if I'm failing at managing this. I aim to run my BG between 5 and 10 because so much emphasis has been put on avoiding hypos by my DSNs, and because hypos make me feel so rough.
    @Robinredbreast thanks so much for starting this thread and to the rest of you who've made me laugh out loud this evening - much needed!

    Hello and welcome @hh1 It's so nice to get a positive result from a diabetes medical professional, it is a hard slog at times with many up's and downs. My dsn talks about the pitfalls of hypo's and always wants me to run a little higher, hard as I, or we try, it doesn't always work out it's supposed to.

    I like the idea of this thread!

    Today I successfully showered without upsetting my nearly-peeled-off dexcom sensor! Woohoo! (It needs to live for 1 more day before sensor change.)

    Good morning jabbers and pumpers.
    Looks like another clear and ( hopefully) sunny day here in the East Midlands.
    Needed to dip into bedside stash of glucotabs at 1.30. ( thanks Dexcom).
    Straight back sleep and knew nothing more until 4.40.
    Why the low? Don't know really, nothing overly unusual. Only guess is it's because I'm T1 diabetic.:banghead::banghead:
    Chill out and have a great day everyone.

    Boo, night time hypos always suck. Enjoy your sunny (and hopefully hypo free) day! :)

    I’m T2, think it’s a great thread and am enjoying the banter about life as a T1.
