    Noticed above that someone had a bad headache in the morning - I used to awake about 4 mornings a week with a headache. I went to doctor and he could not find a reason. That same evening I read an article in the Daily Express written by the Head of a London Headache Clinic which mentioned Hypnic headaches. He suggested people that suffer from these headaches either take an ordinary coffee which contains caffeine before going to bed - I find that if I take this caffeine boost after 9pm it still works - or something like a ProPlus caffeine tablet. How my doctor laughed when I mentioned this but it did work! He had not heard of Hypnic headaches but this can be checked out on-line. The "powers that be" do not yet know the cause and this generally happens in older people particularly women.

    Hi @jennyjane
    If you’d like to start a discussion about hypnic headaches please feel free to start your own thread by posting in a suitable forum, for example other ‘Health Conditions and Diabetes’. You’ll get a better response than here which is a place to record fasting blood sugars, but with very little chat :)

    8.3 - I'm new to this posting but everyone else seems much lower than me. Depressing.

    No need to be depressed. Everyone starts somewhere. Good to see you here.

    @Jonah_Jones Yeah don’t feel depressed, I was having readings in the 10+ range prior to my regime change. You’ll get there!

    5.8 GlucoRx-Q or 9.6 Libre at 7:45am. New sensor still settling in, I hope. Otherwise I've just invested £54 in a random number generator.
