    4.2 this morning - back to normality thankfully - both in terms of BS levels and exercise too! Must remember what a friend of mine said to me (type 2 - insulin dependent). She said "don't beat yourself up - it happens sometimes for no reason". Wise words.

    Morning All

    Rather unexpected 7.5 for me today.

    This last pot of strips has not been kind to me - starting a new one tonight.

    6.7 This morning. Yesterday cost me £20 at the dentist to find out I had a mouth blister ( I was concerned it might be a tooth infection) It was money well spent. I was told that bon jella was all I needed. I took some vitamin C and a multi vit today just in case as the infection has been affecting my sugars for the last few days.

    Thank you.
    I used to have another meter but the strips were too expensive for me to buy as on a limited budget

    7.7 this morning.
    Happy with that considering my belief that my antidepressants taken at night raise my morning BG. My pre-dinner reading was 6.1 so I'm sure my BG drops well during the day.

    5.1 at 6:00 am.

    Got my blood test results yesterday, my hba1c is still the same as last time at 5.4% but it is down in mmol/
    mol from 36 to 35.

    So I am happy with that figure, and my GP gave me a well done and put me on a six monthly blood test.

    Got him to sign another six monthly NDSS test strip approval form, to get strips at $1.30 per 100 box while I was there. :D
