    Morning all, 4.7 this morning. Still on steroids and now also on methotrexate, so pleased with my reading although they have been hit and miss. Steroids been reduced from today thank goodness and I’m due my Hba1C test in the next few weeks. That’ll be interesting!

    Poor sleep impacts greatly on sugar levels

    7.4 this morning, about as well as can be expected after a 2 am snack. But a 2 am snack is better than a night of sleeplessnesss due to hunger.

    Morning All. 6.1 going in the right direction. @DJC3 great sticking power. @SaskiaKC a dilemma, hunger defo prevents sleep. You can move on.

    Good morning, all.

    @SaskiaKC -- Agree, I also can't sleep when I'm hungry.
    @PenguinMum -- 6.1 is great given that your body is still dealing with Covid.
    @DJC3 -- Great run of low fasting levels lately.

    Blood glucose was 4.6 upon getting up.
