    God knows - I was using a Freestyle Libre - its so **** (IN MY OPINION) bordering on a scam(IN MY OPINION)

    Last sensors where
    1) Broken - readings over 2 hours droped in a line from 6MMOL to 1MMOL (abbot replaced it) oh joy!
    2) Ok'ish for 5 days - but last 9 days flat lined on 4MMOL
    3) Reads 2 MMOL to high and its very suceptable to movement of my arm :¬(

    Never pricked my fingers so much since getting (and SMASHING IT UP).
    This is rubbish tech - Be careful people - its your life

    OK rant over proper reading was 5.4 on waking (2 meters 3 strip per meter average)

    Thinking maybe a few too many carbs for breakfast ;) (especially as you were already at 8.6) what did you have?

    I can stay pretty level if my readings are on the high side, but no joy if I get down to low 6s let alone 5s. I sometimes think my body must be happy at these higher levels - but I'm certainly not! :eek:

    So well done you!

    Did 5.6 miles brisk walking this afternoon, in less than an hour :) 370 calories according to this new app I'm trying. 6,600 steps, too.

    You may find you get more pleasing results if you alternate fast and medium pace throughout the time. I have found that this does not usually result in that higher reading after exercise that I used to get when going gung-ho at the same brisk pace for the whole hour or so that I was walking.
    Well done, for exercising anyway. Got to be better than not!

    You are right about the Freestyle rubbish M... I was forced to buy one of their meters once and the readings were so high my husband threw it in the bin with all the strips, because I was so upset at the numbers... horrid things.... but who can you report them to?
