    Mine @ 09:15 this morning was 5.8mmol/ml I am on a Insulin Pump for better control 24/7.
    I have noticed that some have stated below 5.0 for their blood sugar reading, if you are driving to work or at anytime, the law now states your blood sugar must be above above 5.0 at all times you are driving. If you have a accident now since this alteration from Swansea, your insurance will be invalid and you will get prosecuted to.
    This should be known now by all Diabetics, but just a reminder in case anyone wasn't aware. Please be careful out there.

    At 7.45 - up late - 6.5 for me - T1 for over 55 years -
    FBG each morning targeted at 5.5 but need to fine tune with a very late evening snack every day.
    Just got my 3yr driving licence renewed which was surprisingly quick!
    Form arrived day after annual review with consultant and licence thro 26 days later.

    mine was 11.5 this morning. not happy with that. but not having a job and getting (extremly) lazy explains why its that high.

    don't have much motivation either to go to the gym :(

    6.5 this morning before breakfast - this is quite good for me. However will start testing as soon as I get up from now on.

    Mine was 10.8 at 07.15. Considering I've been getting readings in the mid 20's, I'm quite pleased with this.
