    5.4 again, and again woken up by phone calls and emails and general panic from everybody. They need to learn to chill, like me.

    My fasting blood results are always higher than later on in the day. The lowest it has been is 9 but often it has been more, going down to 7 later in the day. I was told by Diabetic Nurse that it isn't possible for someone who is type 2, even though I have shown her tests. The syndrome where you get high fasting blood sugar is only supposed to happen to people on Insulin she told me. I am on Metformin tablets.
