    Hi Folks

    I had a 6.0 this morning, then straight off for a blood test.

    Been wrestling with a ballcock ever since.....

    Hi folks. BG 4.4 fasting this morning. I've recognised that my FBG level has been lower over the past few days, possibly due to having had a small glass of wine. I rarely drink, but had been bought a nice bottle of rose. Not a bad "side effect." :)

    Hope you're ok after your hypo @loulou99782. X

    Morning everyone. 4.2 fasting today. Definitely the wine contributing to lower FBG's. Guess it's worth knowing. Good health folks.

    @JoyceGlasgow. Hope you're ok. 2.9 is low, even for you. Best wishes.
