    Hello all
    7.4 for me this morning that's about my average.
    Then eggs and bacon and it drops to around 6.5
    I x Met and long walks/diet, but still have a few carbs
    Last Hb1c 41 due for my annual in March not expecting a change.
    Self test levels daily after meals so I know what spikes me and avoid..
