    5.3 at 4:30 am.

    The admin nurse at my GP's who was doing my new health care plan for the podiatrist, quizzed me about my diet and pointed to the food wheel on the wall, and asked if I wanted to see a nutritionist and swap a couple of my podiatry visits for them.

    A polite "no thanks but I have it sorted out", and showed her a couple of my charts in my phone app. She liked the hba1c one best. :D

    6.1 again this morning. Disturbed sleep for time being, dashing out to garden with pup when he’s restless. I should also buy shares in companies making rolls of paper towels
