    Hi Ianspurs - what diet/what do you eat to achieve such excellent FBG? I have never got below 5 even although I am in remission for last 2 years - although I do unfortunately get/have DP ;)

    It's a 6.3 for me this morning ;)

    3.9 @ 6.20 but last 4 days of Libre sensor so may be why. Weighed (in other bathroom for the steps), showered, dressed, 4.5 so the pattern is right

    I hope meds are sorted for you quickly but admire your strength of character dealing with this.
