    6.1 this morning. Twice leg cramps had me crawling out of bed in agony during the night. I need to concentrate on taking Potassium and Magnesium more. As a quick fix I've discovered a spoonful of Milk of Magnesia solves the problem in double time. I'll not be moving too far from the bathroom today though :(.

    8:45am: My left little finger is a 7.2. My left index finger is a 6.3. Clean hands (fresh out of the shower.) I'm seriously starting to question the accuracy of my meter.

    I'm taking 6.3 as the reading (7.2 seems unlikely.)

    There’s another variable, which I’ve not read about, and that is the vagaries of our actual circulation and the local take up of Glucose. What do you think? I’ve had that differential between right and left hand. Thing to experiment with is to see if you can repro the “error” on the same hand, then finger.
