    7 this morning, which is an average of 2 very different readings from 2 meters of different brands.
    6.7 and 7.3. They don't look as different that way as they look on the meters: 122 and 133.
    Whatever. Both within range of what the doctor wanted.
    Happy Saturday, everybody. :)

    I did a longer fast yesterday, ate my main meal at lunchtime so I guess that's what resulted in the low FBG this morning. I haven't eaten yet today and I feel ok. Finger crossed my BFG isn't below 4.

    Good morning all. 4.9 on Tee 2 today. Libre sensor went completely Tonto yesterday, veering between unable to be read and 10s. To be sure I resorted to Stabby McStabbyface +2hrs after most eaten meal - 4.8 there 10.8 Libre. Abbott aware. Unrelated but a day with huge potential for a major falling out - I may need to eat both lips never mind bite one.

    Yes I am starting to get a healthy distrust of the Libre in fact may use the prickometer for a while to get a truer idea of what my blood sugars are actually doing may have no choice in the matter as my sensor is soon to become defunct and Abbott have been a little tardy sending me my new sensors.

    Mind you I have used the prickometer when libre showing me as very low to confirm readings

    6.9 this morning. Good to be back down in the 6s.
    As to what's for brekky this morning, I looked at the KittenCat over by the patio door munching something she'd found on the floor and I said, "So, who did you have for breakfast this morning?"
