    Libre sensor reading 72 mg/Dl. Libre strip Precision reading 99.
    It is one of the best readings during past several months. A tight control of diet, medication and exercise seems to produce good results. I am also feeling better than past few years.

    4.6 today
    However this was my 2nd attempt. My first was 5.7 which is much higher than usual so I thought I would do it again. 4.6 lower than my usual but I'm 'avin' it!!!

    It's going to be in the 30s today in my neck of the woods (And probably yours too). It's nice waking up knowing exactly what you will be wearing ;-)

    Can I just clarify for any newbies that a reading of 4.4 is not considered hypo by clinical definitions, have a read of this page about hypos:
