    6.6 at 8.25 am. Bedtime reading was 5.6 at 11.30 pm.

    Best night's sleep I can remember in quite a while. Eight hours plus and no trips to the loo :)

    Purely out of interest, those of you who live in the U.K.,do you have to buy your own meters, testing strips etc, or is this all supplied by the nhs? I left Scotland to live in Switzerland 40+ years ago and am somewhat out of touch, but it still interests me. Appreciate if anyone could take the time to bring me up to date. Sleep well
