    Morning All

    Don't know what happened yesterday, thought I had posted my 6.2, but it seems not.

    Slightly better 5.4 this morning.

    Bellatom - Geoffers is right in what he says. Our meters are only required to be +/- 15% at 10, and +/-10% at the 5 level, so I did 3 tests this morning - same finger, different places, 2 different meters. I got 6.6, 6.0 and 5.4.

    Fact is, true level is probably around 6.0 - but I always take the lowest for my records, which may be cheating, but it means my trends are consistent, which, as Geoffers also says, is what is important.

    7.3 this morning, up a bit. Doing 2 week diet doctor challenge, rather than my usual two day fast. Unsure if I can have milk, but I am in coffee and tea. Not sure why I'm moving up, as it's close to 20 carbs per day. Off on walk to compensate. :meh:

    6.5 at 5:00 am.

    Got my daily average down to 6.38 over the last three months, my CDE will be very pleased when I see her again.

    After washing my hands I use hand gel to ensure as clean as poss do you think this could produce a high reading or maybe i just eating too much. I did have 2 small squares of 85% dark chocolate but this was around 8.30 last night!
