    4.6@ 05:30AM -
    This represents a range of .7 to .9 jump from my usual 3.6mmol/l -3.9mmol/l FBG reading.
    I have not posted on this thread in ages - since I pretty much have the food side of T2DM control on lock down:woot:.
    Yesterday I got some Asda 'cooked chicken - wafer thin slices'
    down to 10p a pack from £1.25 (due to short date -it would have been rude to not buy some.:p)
    Only problem is they come with 2.2grams of carbs per 100grams....I usually stick to 0grams of Carbs for my meats - (I can and prefer to do bad all by myself)
    So in essence I purchased the average jump in my fasting BG for 10p haha;)
    I am not chucking them out - I will just up my walking by another half a mile
    I love bargains.

    New pot of test strips, good sleep, coughing less, 6.2 this morning. I think I got up before dawn got mean, though I did have just one meal yesterday, and have done the same today.

    @Starfish18 and @suzywakeup - dawn was round mine really early as I was 6 this morning. At 2.30am I was 5.2 and I was so tempted to post that number instead.

    At least that way you can be more confident that it is Dawn messing with your levels and nothing you did it didn't do?
    I got up (for a wee) at 2.30 and bloods were 4.7 and I thought then, well if they're in the 6s or 7s when I get up in the morning, at least I'll know it's DP. Maybe because I wasn't stressing so much about my levels when I eventually got up, or maybe it was because I ate fewer carbs yesterday that they were lower today, the enigma of diabetes have a great day
