Note to self: "Must not finish off all the pickled onions, hotdogs & cheese on sticks. :hungry: Ermmm...nor the Chocolate Yule Log either. :confused: I don't even feel guilty. Lol. :meh: BG 5.2 this morning.

    Mine used to be near 20 when I was first diagnosed so it can take time for them to come down.

    Hello George, if i go to bed with readings around 5or6 overnight my levels would drop lower and if I don't waken and treat a hypo my liver jumps into action and releases stored glucose driving my levels up.
