    6.3 Libre, 7.1 GlucoRx-Q. 9.8 Tee2+. All at 9:30am, and the last 2 from the same blood sample. No food, but I'd had a cup of coffee with a dash of milk.

    I might as well just write numbers between 4 and 10 round a dartboard, and then chuck arrows at it.

    I did have a 5.0 out of Libre at around 4am.

    5.3 this morning. Really surprised as had pizza last night. Still, not something to repeat too often (the weight gain was fast, high carb water retention I suspect)

    And today's random numbers (11:30am) are...
    6.0 - GlucoRx-Q
    7.7 - Tee2+
    6.7 - Libre

    Once again, the first two are from the same blood sample.
