    5.3 today, although I was messing about bleeding radiators first thing so that reading will be a touch higher than it *should* be.

    Morning,

    8.7 today, so on the right track. Don't feel nearly as achey in my body either which is a bonus. I have been concentrating on eating no refined carbohydrates the last couple of days, today I will also start eating more vegetables too.

    8.9 at 7am. 2 weeks ago all my FBG were around 6.5, but this week has been so much higher. My diet has been the same so I don't know what's going on.

    It could be a number of things, but the main thing is that you stick to what you've been doing, I've had double figures whilst eating the same foods, I know that it's down to factors beyond my control, colds and an infection even with a few days with BG at 10-13 my overall averages are still looking ok 7.2 for a 30 day period and the last 7 days average 6.4.

    Think of it a a short term problem and stick to making good food choices.

    Thanks @Stallen. I have had a bad cold and haven't slept well as a result for the last few days, so that could be it.
