    6.7 fasting.
    Not brilliant, but better than 25.1 four weeks ago.

    6.7 is brilliant. An achievement some still struggle to keep without medication. Me included. Mind you even on medication can be a struggle but not impossible.
    Fantastic result. Keep it up :)

    @britishpub I called them and they sent me a spare meter so I have a back up. Their customer service is brilliant. Free batteries received quickly too. I cannot fault the company. Sorry.
    I don't think you've been happy with that meter for a while. Are you going to try a different meter?
    I hope you get the right meter for you quickly.
    Is your gp restricting your cassettes?

    Amazingly 4.2 when I woke up at 08.30, fell back to sleep then 4.1 at 11.30. Can't believe it after our meal out last night, treated myself to a small creme brulee for dessert, so was expecting higher ones this morning.
