    4.8 which, since it is on Libre, is probably too high - fine if by Stabby McStabbyface. Super Saturday @Rachox

    8.8 I started low carb 2 weeks ago. I've swapped to black sugarless coffee from Tassimo latte. Cut out all potatoes, rice and pasta. Wondering how long it will take until I can drop the Januvia or a Glucophage.
