    Hi folks. After pigging out on toffee apples, popcorn & chocolate at Halloween, I wasn't surprised by my 6.8 on Sunday morning. Strict portion size & food choices throughout Sunday resulted in a big drop to 3.5 fasting on Monday morning. Most unpleasant. Sweats/shakes/confusion & "woolly-headed." Treat as a hypo. Diabetes reminding me who's boss!!

    Good Morning, my count this morning is 15.3. I tested in the top centre of my finger, 16.7 and the side of my finger 15.3. They were right the reading is better on the side prick of the finger!
