    :eek: 6.3 at 6.45 am (and still 6.3 after my shower). Was 5.8 when I went to bed, after ham and egg salad for dinner. :(

    Morning all

    Mine was 6.5 today but at least I do know why. ....

    Got a bit carried away at the toughest quiz on the coast last night and on reflection the caramel cheesecake with ice cream might have been a mistake :oops:

    But hey - I'm on holiday, right?

    Good morning - 5.7. It's back to being in the 5s consistently, despite being in pain after an op, so I'm happy

    My metformin stopped working due to my liver.
    Now reintroduced they allow more than 30g carb which was making me ill.
    Readings now are the same as low carb higher insulin.
    Doing medium carb 150g carb and medium fats. 44-60 mixed insulin depending on a treat.
    Would you like to drop metformin permanently @liam1955 ?
