    If your low carbing, some have a carb and somehow it gives a temporary lower fbg. We dont know why, maybe liver refilling with glucose so cannot dump at same time?

    9.5 this morning (up from 9 yesterday) tested a couple of hours later and was 6.5, maybe the morning high has something to do with a change in metabolism from 2 weeks out of the country and things are taking time to adjust back to blighty mode IDK?
