    5.9 fasting this sunny morning

    6.4 before supper last night and 6.6 after, and 6.4 after this morning's breakfast

    Averages last week:
    Overall: 6.6
    Fasting: 6.4
    Before meals; 6.5
    After meals: 6.8

    Which is finally close again to what I started off with last year... The glucose gremlin's obviously in a good mood ! :D

    6.3 again. The hour has thrown me all out of kilter and also had way too much protein yesterday.

    Don't ever get jealous - we've all got unique bodies and diabetic conditions so can't replicate what happening to others....:wideyed:

    My meter allows me to set target ranges for various types of readings and I use these as my goals, not the results I see on here every day...

    Yes, @WeeFergus just hang in there, and it will surely begin. From what I've read here, the overnight fasting are generally later than others to get into the desired range. My BGLs are only just beginning to meet targets now.
    Good luck with your HbA1c - mine is also in April.

    Tea fuelled 'old age' pensioners barging their way past the 'younger' generation to get to the bargains at the superstore whilst at the same time joyfully spending the kids inheritance. Courtesy of viz magazine and a derivative of the ubiquitous 'larger lout'.
