    good morning everybody ...:)
    my numbers are really going in the wrong direction
    today again 6.7 at 9:00

    Slept wonderfully , didn´t have a lot of carbs yesterday , but did have a bailey and a glass of red wine ... the only common thing in the last days higher readings is that I had some alcohol all the different days, only a few not more than 3 glasses... did think it would lower my morning numbers by blocking my liver, but now considering if my liver compensate as soon as it is rid of the alcohol and then speeds up conversion of proteins into blood glucose...

    ... ... when I drink sometimes it changes things and sometimes not..... .. Generally if I get up early I have lower sugars and drinking / late nights isn't always conducive to early mornings ......
