    Thanks for this pointer - it was something I was starting to think.

    I've been doing 6 tests a day (my 'on rising' and 'before breakfast' are the same thing, and often, 2 hours after my evening meal is only an hour or so before I go to bed). What's been surprising me is that the after-breakfast levels, after eating a range of different foods, is often lower. This is also sometimes the same with the before and after lunch readings.

    You can see why I was wondering why you all seem to be rating this first reading of the day as significant.

    This morning mine was 7.7.
