    5.6 - was this morning and this is my normal. When it rise up more than 6.5, it happens especially when I work and means that I need to take a rest for a few minutes.

    Posting 8.2 this morning which is right between the 8.1 and 8.3 my 2 meters gave me. The new meter gave the lower number again today, as at yesterday's first trial, but not as much lower.

    Heyho, been finding life challenging. Hope everyone is well.
    Have been having nice steady 5.5 to 5.8 fasting, but erratic variances later, some days. High as 11.4 an hour after eating, (ok, so it was 2 slices of thick toast with butter and lemon curd) dropping to 3.2 after another hour. This low has also happened without the naughty deviant toast munching. Don’t like that low. Feel cold to the core when that happens.
    Going to behave and start reporting daily again.

    5.7 today. I woke really early which is nice because I’ve made a full pot of coffee and come back to bed with it. I hate rushing in the morning.
    @Pipp it’s good to see you back but hugs for the erratic BGs you’ve been having.

    Have two meters kept as a back up to my libre. Sticking lancets into fingers multiple times per day is just not my scene. The libre is infinitely easier to use. I do not mind the cost of paying for it myself even if i have been refused its use on the NHS. I look upon it as an investment in my health.

    New to this - why fasting? Did you really not eat for 60 hours? I thought this wasn’t a good idea (especially if taking medication). Curious

    Good morning all.

    4.9 today.

    @DJC3 -- Great fasting levels lately.
    @PenguinMum -- Hugs for the toss and turn night. Fasting blood sugars look really good lately, though.
    @Pipp -- Hugs for the erratic blood sugars.
