    Maybe PM those you feel comfortable discussing this with, if you don’t feel able or willing to start a thread in open forums?
    Just a suggestion, as I understand your concerns. :)

    Thanks @Pipp. Posted on full on chat thread and basically I'm probably best just shutting up as much as possible.

    No, there is not ‘disagree button’ butI think if you have concerns there are people willing to discuss those. There is a time to every purpose and all that. So right place, right time right people.
    No need to feel that you have to be silenced.
    Oh and my fasting today was 6.1. Fine with that, having hit some 4s yesterday. Would be interesting to see what HbA1c is, but current guidelines allow GPs to pass on that for anyone consistently under 52. So maybe buy my own, home HbA1c test, or just wait until I see consultant for other stuff later this year and persuade him to stick the routine tests on the blood form.

    Not silenced thanks. Just clear on how this forum is and isn't useful to me. End this here - good fbg for you.

    Hello all.

    @PenguinMum -- Hope the temperature will cooling down soon for you. Personally, I believe that stress tends to impact blood sugars significantly. So, I am not surprised that they would impact yours.
    @SaskiaKC -- Hope you're doing fine. Thanks for the good morning wishes the other day.

    Blood sugars this morning were 4.9.

    Enjoy the remainder of the weekend all.
