    Morning all. Thanks for all your good wishes for the appointment yesterday. It went well and I woke to a jolly 5.0 so now I have a new lease of life ( for 6 months anyway)

    No didn’t have to self isolate. Had to wear a mask obviously and no visitors are allowed in the hospital at all, so that was a bit daunting - going to such an appointment without a hand to hold. Completely understandable though. It felt very different without the normal friendly bustle of people, patients and staff. Trying to drink lots of water in the CT scan waiting room while wearing a mask was challenging too!
    Hope yours goes as well next week.

    Good morning all. Really pleased for you that yesterday went well @DJC3 and interesting (but hardly surprising) that fbg fell sharply once that was done. Thanks for the good wishes and peek into what I may expect next Thursday. Local news had a big feature on Addenbrookes last night. The Libre and phone feel I should accept their 4.2 @ 6.40 ish. Sleeping better lately just unsure if extra kgs are a plus or minus.

    5.3 this morning. Snacked on some Leerdammer cheese at bedtime. I bet there's a lot of people heading to the beach with a forecast high of 33 degrees C here. I'm not one of them.

    Hello, lovely people!

    There is a fair bit of "off topic" discussion happening on this thread.

    I'm not knocking the commiseration/encouragement/or "high fives" on member's fasting numbers.

    However, some of the postings should be on the "full on chat" topic designed for this purpose. (Link below.)
    https://www.diabetes.co.uk/forum/threads/what-was-your-fasting-blood-glucose-full-on-chat.163627/
    A number of posts have been moved to the FBG full on chat topic as a result.

    Please stay on the topic of this particular thread. Sanctions may incur.

    I thank you!

    8.3 and 7.5 today.
    Sometimes this seems less of a me check and more of a meter check.

    Morning All. 5.9 after being close to 7 all day yesterday so ate very little, less than 10g carbs. Does anyone find extreme heat raises their BG?

    My fbg is somehow mixed up in the 4.4 @ 6.03, 4.8 @7.12 or 5.1 by 8.10 . Whatever it is Libre seems to want to assure me that part of my life is fine. @PenguinMum re heat, I was in 3s and 4s yesterday.* @DJC3 back in the groove - yay.
    *Functioned fine and it was Libre
