    7.5 this morning - heavy carb day yesterday to fuel an hour's running around an MOD training area and standing outside for 6 hours whilst teammates did the same.

    Really annoying as I am managing to stay between 4 and 6.5 the rest of the time! I woke at 1am last night and tested and my BG was 6.1 so I don't think it is a rebound effect of going too low during the night. My grand plan is to increase my basal gradually and see what this does. Last night I took 22 units instead of my usual 20 and this morning my fasting was 7.5 which is better .....

    From all that I have learnt ( mainly from this forum) fbg is the hardest to bring down and if your levels are good during the day , which yours appear to be , then that is more important so don’t be too disheartened .
