    There can be quite a difference between libre and finger prick testing. In my own trial the difference could be anything up to about 2mmol/l difference. On speaking to Abbott about this difference they said this was down to the different systems and said that the libre should be done about 20 minutes.? after the finger prick test which does make sense

    4.1 on finger prick, 4.3 with down arrow on libre...

    It was fasting day yesterday so I was expecting the reading to be hovering in range of 4...

    5.7 this morning. I was really happy with this as I have a new sensor I started yesterday. I have to turn my high alarms off overnight as it constantly wakes me up otherwise as it cycles all over the place before settling into the fortnight. Have a great day everyone.

    5.0 this morning which probably has more to do with the amount of wine yesterday than anything else.
    Yay! For the 5 @PenguinMum

    7.9 this am ; up and down in the 7's and 8's with the odd 6 thrown into the mix . Though the readings do ( with the exception of poor sleep ) reflect my lack of carb control :bag:

    4.6 for me this morning at 5am (was 6-12 shift today - new job doing different shifts) so I know what I need to do to be in the 4s get up early! pity I am a night owl and not an early bird - so basically I am in the wrong body clock.

    I have this pattern too, I really believe sleep affects the numbers. I can eat a meal of pasta for my tea and have a fantastic sleep and wake to 6.2 , if i don't sleep well I am 7 or over .
