    Forgot to post yesterday - it was 6.1 after snacking on salted peanuts late on the night before.

    This morning's reading is 5.3.

    Hopefully but I think maybe may or June before things can get back to some sort of normality at the moment there’s just not enough work for the cabs on the road so I’ll have to find something else to pay the bills in the meantime

    I feel fine but do agree it is pretty low. Waiting on my new hba1c hopefully this week as I was tested Friday to see if I'm on too many drugs now

    Good morning all, 8.1 this morning. Shouldn't complain really.... It has been a lot worse recently but still a work in progress.

    Have you had an “official” diagnosis? Have you had a blood test that included the HBA1C test? Do read my signature. Anything in thee that sounds familiar?
