    3.9 - 4.1 depending on reader/phone. All good as Libre reads low, no hypo effects and if true must help the average. @JanetMcDowell absolutely duty and will be for years to come.

    First test strip resulted in a 7.4! Considering I went to bed with 5.7 and after consuming under 10g carbs all day, the test woke me up!

    Second test resulted in 5.4 at 6am..... I'll stick with the second test me thinks :)
