    I do run a tight ship, my Diabetes team are happy, I use the Dexcom G6 so it alarms me if I'm dropping or below 4.1.

    5.5 for me this morning. It's raining here. Need to take the dogs out. I just have to remember that I'm not about to disolve in the rain.

    Here we go.... 6.8 this morning :bag:. Yesterday I had 22.8g of carbs and 1472 calories. I don't usually go above 1300. ( I count them because it does seems to make a difference to me - the higher the cals, the higher the FBG ). Relatively energetic day at work but late night/late supper which seems to make a difference too - the later I eat the higher the FBG. I stress over FBGs :woot:

    4.9 for me. This is my first time in the 4s since being diagnosed two weeks ago with a number that ended with a 4 but started with a 2 (24!). Proud of myself for what I’ve managed to achieve in a short time but conscious there is a whole lifetime ahead of me. Have a great day everyone!

    Ok, here's the story, last night went to bed bloods 5.5
    Had a nightmare stirred awake with my brain was saying don't swallow (what you have in your mouth) it's poison! Of course I couldn't help swallowing and immediately jumped up in bed. Got up and measured, 6.2, fight or flight adrenaline I think. But its interesting nevertheless, just shows what stress can do. Couple of drinks of hot water and tested again bloods 5.1, 4.8 and 5.2, checked 3 times just to get a consistent result and then gave up. Quickest my bloods have reduced. I would have expected them to have remained in the 6s or at least the upper 5s. Maybe short sharp shocks are the next big thing for reducing blood sugars. Not! Cheers everyone have a great day.
