    Swipey decreed a 5.1 which, allowing for its Gump like exuberance, is pretty much a clusterwhatsit IMHO. Hug if needed @JohnEGreen - that level is about where I think I may be "safe" on Swipey but worrying on Stabbo.

    Good morning all.

    4.5 this morning.

    @PenguinMum -- Well done on the 5.9 this morning.
    @JohnEGreen -- How are you feeling? Agree with the others, 3.7 sounds a tad low.

    @PenguinMum @ianpspurs @ziggy_w

    The 3's is not in my comfort zone so had some coffee and tested again got 3,5 had a snack waited then another test and was up to 4.5 so happier now. were Libre readings but backed up by stabometer. I seem to get unexplained cycles of periods of highish and then lowish readings just one of those things I guess.

    Dare not tell doc I get odd hypos or he might try to foist some sort of meter on me.

    I should be so lucky. :)

    4.8 on Libre and 5.2 on finger pick. Was a bit disappointed that it wasn't in lower 4s given it was fasting day yesterday but then I did sleep very late at around 2 last night...so perhaps it was the culprit. Good news is so far it is all within 6.5 so far

    Thank you for the encouragement. They took a LARGE syringe of blood so they have plenty to play with.
