    6.9 is this due to the 4 chocolates I ate on Wednesday night? Readings yesterday were all much higher than normal too - #sheesh

    4.7 after a day of much stricter eating.

    After losing some weight I do seem to have better insulin sensitivity and have been experimenting with it. It's clear that yes, treats I don't spike me as much as they used to, but the underlying BG level starts to creep up if I have them too often.

    I count my self as a "lucky diabetic" (if there can be such a thing) because I was diagnosed early, don't really have any associated symptoms and I suit a LCHF lifestyle. But I won't remain a lucky diabetic if I get complacent and recent days have just shown me that again.

    One small glass of red wine last night helped with my FBG of 4.6 this morning.

    I was a 5.3 this morning. I have ignored the SD Codefree nonsense result.
