    I feel for you.... probably any stress? cold? flu? rogue strip? wash hands? I noticed that using fresh lancet sometimes gives a different number - anywhere between 0.5 to 1.0 lower. Since then i have been very particular about washing with soap, drying and using fresh lancet (as often as feasible). And numbers seem lower. Turns out more expensive ... so i am pricking less often

    Clean hands, always use fresh lancet ( I’m lucky that my Krankenkasse pays for ALL my supplies - lancets, sensors etc) and no stress, colds or flu. I’m looking at it as a ‘c’est la vie’ situation- no point in stressing. Enjoy your Sunday - I have a puppy-training-session-in-the-rain morning. It’s compulsory (Law) so i can’t avoid.
