    @UsmanMo96 - Yeah, I’ve watched my morning numbers wandering upwards too. Keep going, you’ll get better. I’ve become fairly pragmatic about these early morning results. Why? Because using my diet and medicine I’ve knocked off a further three points from my HbA1c.

    6.6 I have never seen it that high since I been testing myself, I think the second covid jab has bumped it up.
