    Hey, I had 5.3 this morning and had lost a bit of weight after not having any appetite for days.

    It's a good idea, but maybe not this thread. I do keep a spreadsheet of my own record and I would recommend that folks do the same, and that way you can keep an eye on your average BG, which is more important than any single day's measure.

    Hi. There is certainly a lot to be said for stats being informative on a general level..and maybe it is an idea to make some kind of info like that available (wee bit of work involved there, I'm sure), but we are all individuals whatever the general trends tell us and here individuals get to feel more part of a community. Personally, that's why I joined - for info, for feedback, for interaction with others with common issues. Now my approach is better and I am far more in control (largely thanks to the advice or just encouragement of others)..and I think I might even be of benefit to others by passing on what I have learned. Let's keep it human please.

    Up to 6.0 this morning after a nice wee pile of 5 pointers...still...could be a lot worse. By the way, I realise I post at very odd times...and I think..it's because I am very odd.

    6.0 today.
    Actually, no. It was 4.9

    I normally test after I've got up, brushed my teeth, attended to my bathroom needs and dressed, before eating.

    Today I decided to do it before I got out of bed, just as an experiment. That read 6.0. Half an hour it was 4.9. 4.9 is more consistent with my previous measures.
