    Thanks @Jenniewren1958 It is just very frustrating when one can't pinpoint a reason and act on it. I hope your lower numbers return :)

    Some higher numbers for folk today and metaphorical scratched heads so today's mission for me is to offer penguin cod wisdom.
    In over 35 years teaching I got really close to 2/3 groups of young people as form tutor seeing them through from 11 to 18. The last time that happened I played this song plenty of times at tough periods in their journey. They amazed me frequently but especially when I lost both my parents the same day and needed time off work to organise things. I returned for their leaving celebration to be presented with a signed Spurs shirt (They had checked authenticity, asked for certificates etc because I always told them to) - Bale and all. Just the most perfect present at the best point in my life it could have come.
    Moral, if any, numbers may be baffling but surprises come in totally unexpected ways so just keep going. The song ?

    Thank you
    A few years ago I was always above the highest reading the meter had which was 33.0
    2 hospital admissions saw my bloods at 59.4 & 48.7 insulin infusions brought me down but was in a week each time

    I went through a very bad spell always high always thirsty and then weeing loads, I was switched basal to Toujeo and my numbers dropped down into range and I became more stable

    Yes I have blips and go up to double figures but I don’t feel to bad in the 10 -20 range

    Thanks @flexi06
