    5.4 this morning which delights me. Remember no more late snacking and I do this by making sure I brush my teeth after dinner so I would not be tempted to snack.

    @ickihun & @srobertson06 -Atorvastatin (Lipitor) that's what I am on and taken it 16 years and I have no problems with it. But, a lot of people do get problems with the Simvastatin.

    How do you know what your levels are, or what foods spike you?

    Even when the doc takes me off prescription strips, I will buy my own as I feel its a way of knowing where I stand (good or bad)

    Morning all. 5.2 again.
    I seem to have left the 4s behind but have introduced some bread and some rice back into my diet so quite happy with my levels

    Hi Paul,

    Thank you for responding!! I hope you are right and it is all down to puberty. My concern is her weight which is about 27kgs does not match to the average safe dosage ( about 9 units).....As you mentioned, I am hoping to hear from another parent or self who can share their personal experience ...I will look up in the parents forum..thank you so much for your support!!!

    I can see the occasional 4 too @PenfoldAPD . Keep away from 3s. Your 4s might make you shaky. Have you had a hypo before?
