    I think my lowest was a 4.1 and that was last month just before my last Hb test. I am a bit confused over the 4.6 and the 4.5 over the last two mornings though as depression hit Thurs night so I ate a lot of processed s*** Thurs night and all of Friday but my FBG is lower. How does that even work :confused: Oh well back on track today so tomorows reading will most probably be higher, go figure :)

    14.5 this morning - Eeeek! Couldn't have been. Re-washed my hands then did it again - 12.5. Still felt it was wrong. Got new batteries this afternoon - 8.4 pre-dinner 2 hours ;later 7.3! going the right way again thank goodness! Can't afford to have a dodgy meter while carbing.

    That's a good idea @nomistheman. But I don't know how to do it. Anyway, I've already sent Viv a PM. Just pointed him to the food & nutrition forum tbh. Plus, the "What have you had to eat today" thread for meal ideas. All the info is there.

    Nice to see you posting. Hope you're well hun. X

    Oh dear eddie1968. You're having a rough time right now. I hope the Antibiotics kick in quickly & helps to settle your BG. X
    BG this bright Saturday morning is 5.7, after a 2am low, which I had a Penguin Biscuit to treat. Dull, throbbing headache though. Really must drink more water. :meh: Good health everyone. Have a lovely day.
