    Mine was 4.2 @ 5.02, then 4.6 @ 6.20 now 5.2 @ 7.36. All Libre so a fair pinch of Himalayan Pink or Kosher required. Abbott are sending replacement sensor and reader after "issues" so fair do's. @Rachox epic fbg yesterday. @JanetMcDowell glad you found the meter - it was the wine wasn't it:angelic: ?

    Perhaps I was somewhere between the 4.7 Libre first showed and the considerably later 5.4 on Tee 2. Then again maybe not and A1c will be a whole other story anyhow.
