    5.1 on waking, now 6.6 after (black) coffee and pills. Some of my pills are apparently sugar. I knew it!

    A "what the" moment with this that reading.

    Getting a couple of blood tests this morning (Sat) from the pathology place at the local private hospital, I see my GP has put a hba1c test request on as well.
