    Hi There

    My reading was 4.6 which is usual for me, anywhere between that and 5.

    Hi @Murchison1 and welcome to the forum! Those are good readings. How are you managing that? Are you on meds or is it by diet.

    Mine was 6.8 although I took it earlier than usual due to a poor nights sleep.

    Evening all. Sorry this ia so late, i've been run off my feet (please excuse the pun)at my weekly Podiatry appointment amongst other things.

    My bs was 3.7 this morning, low enough to warrant toast & marmalade for breakfast. I am not comfortable being that low first thing, it seems to take far longer to locate my get up & go than at any other time of day.
    There's no logical reason for the drop, I was 8.3 last night, & had my normal dose of Levemir. Does anyone else suffer low bs in the morning?
