    Very far and very fast - somewhere between 4.4 and 5.3 i.e where I was from March 9 to March 17 - only 4 days in that range in between then and now.

    5.3 at 8am.
    Expected it to be higher due to an evening meal out last night. Tapas which included pitta bread, dips and small rosties. Pre meal 4.4 and 2 hour post reading over 7 where it stayed until i went to bed at 2am. Tested every 2 hours to see at what point it would go down, well it hadnt by the time i nodded off. But i really enjoyed the food and had more or less what i would have had prior to diagnosis. Using an afternoon tea for 2 voucher we got for christmas today. Taking our daughter who can have my portion!!! Im sticking to chicken salad!

    No. I just think it may be either virus or start of hay fever. My fbg does drift up with illness. Daily averages drifted up from 4.8/5 to 5.3 - one bad day 5.7. The main drivers of this rise are first 2 readings of the day.

    5.2 @ 7am Canada. I woke up with this feeling in my stomach like I needed something to snack on, had a handful of peanuts and water and hoping to fall back asleep for two more hours. Wish me luck!

    So on the upside you hopefully will see it settle in the next week or so. I presume this doesn’t affect your HbA1C.

    No, it shouldn't affect HbA1C - that is due around June 16th. I am just mighty dischuffed with my body's performance right now. I need it to get with the program asap - parents lost my patience gene:angelic:
