    Thank you. Do we both go through it all again in 6 months?

    It always amazes me when it's hotter in the UK than in the southern US!

    I guess so. We can hold each others virtual hand through it all. I must say your BGs have stayed impressively good throughout.

    Frustrated isn't it Saskia. All sorts involved, food, sleep, stress, illness just a few examples. I feel a 14 day cgm would benefit you. Just wearing one for 14 days will show you so much.

    4.7 which is a great relief as I dreamed I ate a jam sandwich and bs went up to 32. I’ve never liked jam sandwiches so no idea what that was all about.
    @SQ71 well done you for being proactive and getting yourself a meter. Welcome to the thread.

    Thanks for that and I like the idea of a virtual hand hold. First reading today was 4.8 @ 5.30 rising to 5.4 @ 8.00. As for what they have been lately I have next to zero trust in them or what eventual A1c will be. I am really hoping to be proved wrong and a set of blood results to show all this (to me) nonsense works for me. Currently - 5 years in-, this is faith without works - which is useless.
