    As said usually fine with straight they do spike me but comes down quick but since I read one of your posts a while back about reheating pasta etc I’ve tried various different things and most work so thanks for that

    5.1 at 0600hrs - think that’s my lowest result to date.

    By the way, Lidl crinkle cut oven chips don’t affect me too much and taste good. Straight ones not only send my readings rocketing, but they taste like cardboard. Weird.

    As I’m on late night insulin, I was advised to wear some kind of alert, but proving to be easier said than done. I have only found silicone bracelets (silicone gives me a horrible rash) here, and foreign suppliers won’t mail to Switzerland. I’ll keep searching.

    Morning all 5.8 for me. Appears to be as good as I’ll get these days but I’ll take it.

    Pah. That’s nothing. Tomorrow is another day. A set of dumbbells will get that down to 5.0 by the next sunrise.

    Burn baby burn. Disco inferno! :singing:
