    7.1 at 6.30 am. However, I'm was 6.9 2 hours after my evening meal before bed last night so it appears to have gone up overnight. Is this normal or do you think my results are corrupt ?

    5.4 - wouldn't get picked first but not a you can have him as well number. Hope you all have the kind of day you would wish for your loved ones. @Bcolclou read the link @Goonergal posted - tribal leader - and also know that abnormal is the normal state of bg readings.

    6.7 don’t know why but as @ianpspurs says: abnormal is the new normal.
    I did watch Bake Off last night so may have subliminally absorbed some bread.
