    Still awake at 0300hrs with my stomach feeling as if my throat had been cut soooo raided the fridge (wasn’t selective). 6.9 at 0830hrs, even higher at lunchtime - I’ll try to behave this afternoon

    Hi @VMK and welcome to the forum. Your blood sugars especially your fasting one will take a while to settle down. You have done the right thing joining this forum. Have a look at the useful info in the link called “Newly Diagnosed, What You Should Know” to be found in my signature.

    6.3 at 0545hrs - not surprised as yesterday’s ‚Pièce de Résistance‘ was evening pizza (might as well go out with a bang on an already lousy day!). New start today

    Argh, day 5 after diagnosis, day 3 with my monitor. 8.3 this morning when I woke up, and when I checked at 1 p.m. it was 8.4, still not eating anything and only drinking water. I was able to get down into the 5's yesterday.
