    I use the freestyle libre monitor for libre, blood tests and ketone tests. Now I have the contour next meter that goes with my pump.

    Why not nudge it up just a little?

    Eat one of your lift tabs, then check again..
    You may have dropped lower, but that's the lag of the meter. (up to 20 minutes prior.) if you have dropped further? take a biscuit. then check in another 20/30.mins. Thats pending on what fast acting insulin is on board. for me with a basel low, 5g lifts it

    @chris85 type 1 what did you decide to do and what number are you at now? For what it's worth I would have said ride it out but keep testing if you had a significant amount of IOB and were likely to carry on doing down.

    Keep checking, that's what I do, a couple of grapes, for me, can help bring BG up without it soaring to high.

    Caresens Dual here as well. I was handed a Glucomen LX meter which did both bloods and ketones (when the hospital got hold of me and changed my diagnosis from T2 to LADA and got me on insulin before they'd let me out of the clinic at my first appointment) but it's since been discontinued. I also have a Tee2, which is from the same people who make the Caresens and have found their customer service to be excellent.

    Now on a slow train heading in the right direction but it’ll be another 40 mins before I get home. I’m an idiot.
