    5.9 for me. I've still got the lurgy, but I've also been a little naughty on the food front so the BG trend in recent days is up. I need to bring that down again so I'm going to be much stricter on carbs today.

    4.7 today - smaller portion size did the trick. Okay, actually I felt a bit awkward eating with my flatmate and walking to the kitchen for another supply of my seeds mix, so I left it there ;)

    Good morning all. I didn't get the time to post yesterday but my readings were 5.5 (fasting) after 5.3 at bedtime. This morning I had a fasting reading of 5.1 after a reading of 5.8 at bedtime last night.

    Later today I'm getting a routine HbA1C test. I was 53 (8.5) on diagnosis in January and 42 (7.0) at the end of April.

    On the high side for me today, at 6.8 Seem to be very dehydrated, so getting some fluids down me should lower BG.

    To do this, what sort of amount of liquid are you going to drink? I'm new-ish to all this, had heard about it, but how much do I stand and drink?

    To lower my BG this morning, I drank 1500mls over a couple of hours. It lowered my BG to 5.0, which is average for me. I'll drink another 1500mls throughout today. SF Squash or plain tap water.
