    On waking was 5.8. Two hours after eating a 19g carb breakfast it was actually down (!) to 5.1.

    Just had a totally identical meal for lunch.

    5.0 before eating. Curious to see what it is in two hours...

    Edit : up to 6. Which is both what I'd expect and perfectly OK.

    6.2 this morning. That will be the fish & chips and beer last night, very nice but feeds straight through to the next morning's reading. Well, it was the first time since pre lockdown.
