    Good Morning. I woke at 0400 and tested, it was 5.9 then. Went back to sleep and didn't get up until 0630, I didn't test again but it would probably have been higher if I had.

    Morning all from sunny Spain.

    5.1 this morning and all appears to be well on the technology front.

    36c in the shade yesterday.

    I thought 5.0 limit only applied to type 1s on insulin. ....

    Thank you :)
    My next Hba1c is coming in two months.
    I am working on my average random, post prandial and fasting BG.
    I am getting better at it, as well as getting better at math with all carb counting and insulin dosing. Woohoo :banghead::smug:;)

    No.

    Unfortunately you have to stay indoors today, sunbathing whilst over 5.0 is not allowed

    Morning all. 4.7 at 6:40am. After all kinds of side affects taking a management decision to have a break from BP meds and have more Mediterranean diet to see if I can keep both within range.
