    Morning all, 8.8 for me today:) At the beginning of the month my readings were in the 15 - 17 range on waking. Thanks to all of you for posting on this site, it is so encouraging and inspirational.

    NO!!!! Stop it! I have no space.

    My Libre sensor has been averaging 80 - 100 every morning now for a few weeks. (<5 for you other folks...) but, I now see that after 150 readings and corresponding test strip test, the sensors are reading an average of 16% too low! My test strip readings have been about 135 - 130. (7.2 - 7.8)

    5.2 today. @Diawara and @Down-Jai 001 joined you in the stupidly early club. A while back some research on the net suggested it was a well known LC side effect. I certainly notice it when going into keto land.
