    Not happy with bloods 6.4 this morning but very happy with the cholesterol experiment even though I didn't last the pace. Wanted to see how dynamic cholesterol is all I can say is it is much more dynamic that is assumed. Now to get bloods back down. :) Maybe a bad idea to have bought a cholesterol monitor so much playing time in there! Something to keep me busy during lockdown:D

    Yes but what was your FBG?

    Oh and we people who home test bye and large tend to have better control over our diabetes than those who rely on infrequent A1c tests for their data that is my contention any way.

    Oh and welcome to the forum.
