18.3 this morning which is better than the 23.5 I got yesterday. I'm feeling fed up.
Morning @Swiggy and welcome to this FBG thread for type 2s. We're pleased you could join us.

Logging my FBG levels here, it must be said, helps to keep me motivated, especially when readings drift upwards due factors beyond our control like infection and injury.

Once again, welcome.

Sugar, in all it's iterations.
G'Day from Montreal, my waking BG this a.m. is 5.1 mmol/L.

Finally another normal night's sleep. That 17km run the other day really started to hurt yesterday. Easing up today. My resting HR is 47 bpm.

8 km late morning run. BG was 5.6 mmol/L on return.

8.6 but as soon as I get up it rises grrrr
As you know @PatsyB, most of us here check our FBG readings as soon as we wake. BG levels rise once we start to move around. That's normal and a modest rise is to be expected.

Are you doing everything you can to keep carb intake low ... ish during the day? Given time and a consistently LCHF lifestyle, your FBG readings should gradually fall further, so the morning rise begins from a lower starting point and gradually becomes less noticeable.

Meanwhile, IME, you can stop a jump in numbers first thing with a modest snack; we're all different, but a teaspoon or two of sunflower or pumpkin seeds or four to five almonds or hazelnuts should do the trick.
