    5.5 this morning, following 6.1 pre-dinner (eh? - maybe a rogue) and 5.8 post dinner.

    Interesting point about dreams - if we have 'stressy' dreams with fight/flight issues involved, does the liver respond to that or does it just think 'stupid brain' and ignore it?

    I think dreams can have an impact. I sometimes have very vivid dreams (but think this could be due to extra vitamins I've been taking), anyway, I sometimes wake up from one and my heart will be pounding like mad. Haven't made a point of noticing higher morning levels on these occasions but I'm sure it must have a physiological impact.........
    Sweet dreams folks!

    Oooops, sorry, didn't mean that to be a "sweet" pun, but I'm sure you all knew what I meant. Obviously not really sweet dreams in our case, that would be bad for our blood sugar readings!

    4,4 this morning.

    Very happy with recent counts

    ImageUploadedByDCUK Forum1412826244.387994.jpg

    Sorry it's in mg/dl - you need to divide by 18 to get corresponding mmol scores.

    To be honest I have been a little surprised at how quickly I have been able to get my numbers down: cutting down on carbs drastically and increasing physical activity seems to have worked.

    Thanks for all the support.
