    good morning all :)

    4.8 today

    woke early and couldn't get back to sleep so got up and had a drink, was intending to go back to bed then didn't, so, tested after I'd been out of bed for about an hour and a half.

    Rainy here again. Miserable weather for the visitors .We managed a walk around the village yesterday between the rain showers so hopefully it will let up at some time today too ;)

    Have a good day everyone :)

    Good luck with your procedure @alf_Josiah. Hope Mrs alf fusses over you.
    5.6 for me today. Anything in the 5s acceptable especially if I have a run of them but there really isnt much logic as to why.
    @Ziggy2017 hope you start to feel better.
    Have a great day everyone.

    6.1 at 8.30am this morning.

    Please with this. Was 6.1 exactly at 11.45pm last night just before I went to sleep so consistent at least.

    Pleased for you re numbers @PenguinMum. Have to part company on the no logic issue - pretty certain there is but that is one of Rumsfeld's known unknowns:banghead: (goes back to Drs never admitting they don't know).

    Not completely lost as your inner sat nav found its way here. Someone better equipped to advise on type 1 will certainly be along soon. Best I can do in the meantime is a virtual hug. Take care and keep us all informed how it goes.

    I had a difficult time getting enough blood out for a reading for this morning (didn't go to washroom during night and therefore drink water), I had to try several times. First reading was erroneous - 1.7! (I'm Type 2 and have never gotten a reading this low - never gotten a real hypo before.) Retested and got 5.2.

    9.1 fbs is high. So why are you pleased with it? I would try to lower it if I were you. Anything above 7.0 is considered high for me.

    Thank you.
    I hope I can get somebody to listen to me.
    The Practice's DN is one pompous so and so, who decreed after a 5minute rant, that because my BG is 'normal' I should not test.
    I have decided we shall not cross paths henceforth.
    I will stick to the main Dr there at the practice, who gets me on my 'control diabetes without medication' level

    its sad and bad that the medical system is so messed up. The power ratio from medical practitioner to patient is so much in favour of the medical professional . It shouldn't be like this. ......

    Hmmm. We are all different and have different medical issues and are on all different types of medication. Some of us are type 1 and some type 2, each has it's own issues.
    Please check out my profile and with the medication I take the serious medics know to achieve anything below 10 first thing in the morning is a success.
    I am sure @Cumberland knows his condition ( s ) and knows what he is doing.

    This forum has taught me not to judge any other member based on our own experiences and conditions.

    Good luck on your quest for acceptable numbers for you.
