    Hi @Shadybaby,

    This is a slightly higher than most non-diabetics would normally see, but nothing overly dramatic. If concerned, speak with your GP.

    Hello @Shadybaby . Good to have you here. As you can see, I often have much higher fasting levels. Fasting level for me , and I believe for most ,is the most difficult to get under control. Why not keep posting fasting numbers here , and seek specific advice after reading round the different posts in forums.

    This morning my fasting level was 7.1. I didn’t stick with my own suggestion of passing on the walking today, because I got sick of being locked up for months, so walked a couple of miles again. Found quiet area of woodland and stepped away from busy streets for an hour. Blissfully peaceful.

    4.5 for me although being on Libre Ts and Cs apply. Fascinating example of dawn phenomenon with lovely red graph. 5.25 2.6, 5.45 4.5. Absolutely no difference in how I felt.

    8.5 with a 7 day average of 9.4 now. This was a average of around 22 1 month ago. I'm type 2 on insulin now 4 weeks. Still frustrated that its not between 4 and 7 but slowly going the right way.
