    4.7 @ 0700 : quite a stressful week so far (crunch time at work) and a shocking night's sleep.

    Hugs for the pain Ibuprofen taken with paracetamol has a greater effect and is safe to do as long as you keep to recommended dose for each of them.

    6.5 this morning. Coming down. Using 2 units of long-acting Levemir at night. Will have to see where it rests before needing to increase the dosage. Day two on insulin.

    7.0 for me this morning! Really don't know where I'm going wrong. Going to count my carbs today but doubt it will be a lot as I only have 2 meals a day. Trying to stay positive but its hard! :bag:o_O:sorry: time to give my pancreas and liver a talking to I think! ​

    #me too!! 7.5 today. This has been going on for several weeks, now. Carb intake is always less than 60g a day. I tried keto, but my digestive system could not cope. Only thing I can think of is a prolonged few months of reduced exercise, and very little of my usual swimming and aquafit, due to being unwell and having ear infections. Now they have cleared but fitness levels need building again.
    I’m off to the sport centre.
