    Mt Blue Sky here. 3.9 @ 6.20 but last 4 days of Libre sensor so may be why (some researchers say 1st day and last 4 need calibration). Weighed (in other bathroom - steps help), wandered back to my room, showered , dressed, 4.5 so the pattern is right.

    I just googled accuracy of Libre versus finger prick and trawled through the results to find the most academic looking one. Guided by The Science, me:angelic:

    4.8 this morning back to finger pricking tomorrow as libre sensor pegs out today and will be a just few days hopefully till new one arrives.

    Is it quicker to get them from elsewhere other than Abbott say Asda or Amazon I know Abbot are slightly cheaper but a bit on the slow side delivery wise.

    5.1 this morning and pleased as I’m still on steroids for a skin infection. Lowest it’s been since I started the meds a week ago.

    @ianpspurs Thanks for the reply.

    BTW this was the chart for the day of that walk I took with almost disastrous result.

    A bit of everything there.
