    Given that your highest ( 7 day) average predicts an HbA1c of 34.6 I'd say you were doing fine :cat:

    5.5 @6.30am - that's well good for me. Clearly walking to the pub for 3 pints of strong ale is the way to go. However, the pub was 8 miles away and another 8 miles back - possibly further given my compromised ability to walk a straight line ;-)
