    Thank you and hugs for the unexplained 6.4 sometimes there seems no rhyme or reason. Did you have a disturbed night with odd dreams again?

    Hello all,

    5.3 this morning -- slightly higher today, guess this is due to a rather substantial late night snack.

    Have a great day, everyone.

    4.7 at 6.03 today - Libre showed dawny p making a strong appearance around usual waking time. Now 4.9 1 h/b egg and 800 mls tea later. @DJC3 hug for interesting readings of late but I'm sure you'll be fine.

    Thanks, Fbg is low down on the list of things to worry too much about at the moment, so long as it doesn’t go sky high.
    Sounds like you’re quite enjoying the data you’re getting from the Libre?

    Sorry to hear there is a list of things for you to worry about atm. Hope there is light at the end of the tunnel. I like (but don't trust) the data but conditions are optimal for me just now.

    I usually let mine bed in 24 hours before activation to avoid lows first 24 hours. I just pop mine on between 2 sites. One at the side (ish) and one towards the back

    5.0 today. Happy.
    Had an Indian take away for dinner. Chicken chilli tiki. Amazing. With my own cauli rice. Didn't rock my bs and I had an onion bhaji! Maybe the red wine helped ;-)
    The rise in the morning was a low carb bacon roll!!
