    Hi, you're in the right place.
    9.4 seems quite high.
    Most folk seem to aim for around 6 but fasting readings can be quite high due to Dawn Phenomenon (dp). It's when your liver produces glucose to compensate for the early morning drop in energy. It isn't unusual. Hopefully your readings will be lower as the day progresses.
    I was happy that my reading was 5.9 today...it had been over 7 for while.

    Morning All

    5.8 this morning, not too bad after a meal out.
    Baked Haddock with asparagus in a cheese sauce, but I might have followed that up with a tiny chocolate fudge cake....

    A friend invited us to a fabulous Indian dinner last night. Had wine and lots of butter chicken, vegetables, naan, and dessert. This morning fbs is 5.5. Not bad at all.

    5.7 at 5:00 am.

    Going to try the apple vinegar cider thingy of Mosely's that was on TV the other night. Had a go at 2 tablespoons (30mi) in 200 ml/s of water yesterday, definitely not a easy drink to swallow down but they say you acquire the taste for it. :D
