    6.4 this morning. 6.1 yesterday. Early days on low carb. Fingers crossed I can get some weight off and get these even lower.

    So, the work of fiction that is Libre had my fbg at 4.7 on the reader or 5.0 on the phone. Either way safe but uninspiring. Perhaps too much information @JanetMcDowell :angelic:
