    using the Libre I can see that my overnight numbers are rock solid and low ( 4's and 5's) - whatever I went to bed at - assuming I last ate before about 8.00pm, it stays pretty much that way overnight, sometime around 8.00 is starts rising and continues to do so until around 12, coming back down around 2.0pm even if I am still fasting. . It seems I can then shorten the morning rise by a proper breakfast as soon as I get up which also gets me to a much lower level by midday.

    Understood DP occurs about 4 to 5 a.m. Also thought it best to wash hands before tests. While I'm washing my hands might as well carry on with the rest.....
    Readings tend to return to mid to upper 6s, sometimes low 7s, later in day.

    Thanks for input. Always interesting to hear how (& why) others do things.

    5.8 this morning. Not sure why higher than my norm, since I did a huge amount of walking yesterday (50k steps).
