    Good morning all, 6.2 today, taken about 15 mins after getting up and after waking at around 3am body clock still a bit messed up but feeling much more human after a nights sleep.

    5.4 @ 9.30 - I’m flaring up at the moment so not much sleep hence the late waking!

    Good Day all
    3.8 @ 07:05
    It appears this low readings are not a fluke.
    Since it goes even lower during the day, and my ketones are reading like a shoe size, I may have to introduce more carbs.
    Folks that makes me really, ..really nervous. o_O
    I thought I had this eating thing down pat. I believed what I had to do was find what gives me good BG numbers, and then park there and coast along. Not so says my pancreas. Not so says my Insulin receptors. They appear to be waking up, and I am getting insulin sensitive.
    Supposing I add more carbs, and it throws me back to status quo ante:bigtears:.

    Gosh!! I hate hard work:arghh:

    Hi All,
    @ianpspurs @Keesha @Goonergal @DJC3 Thank you for your kind comments.
    5.4 was the score on the prickometer at 05.54. I wonder what it would have been 10 minutes earlier;)

    Kitchen is in a state of blackout making my heartstarter coffee this morning, it's a toss up whether a new fleuro globe or a new light switch is needed. :meh:

    As soon as it was light enough, I ripped the cover of the light and changed the globe, nothing. Give the switch a jiggle or three and there was light, and you could see for plurry kilometres around.

    Got a sparky booked to replace the switch today.
