    5.6 on Swipey today - can only imagine hay fever and sensor on last legs to blame - right arm always higher as well. How to lose the kg that has bothered me for a month+, overnight - new batteries in the scales. 74 kgs suits me better (6 foot tall for info). @Estragon have another :woot: @PenguinMum have a hug. Y'all have a good day now - yes our neighbours both say that along with thousands of others hereabouts. Reassuring presence and lovely people.

    Good morning all,

    Fbg was 4.7 today -- back down again after two days of higher blood glucose levels -- still blaming excess protein.

    @Estragon -- Great reading, well done!
    @PenguinMum and @annabell1 -- Hugs for the bad night's sleep. Keeping my fingers crossed that tonight will be better for both of you.

    Do you think it's anything to do with your vaccine? - I have not had a 5 in over 3 weeks since I had mine... possibly something else for me - I would just be interested to know

    I have no way of proving that, however a sub6 is rare for me. Just checked 3 hours after Breakfast, and now a nice round 7. Yup, I’m a diabetic.

    Same happens to me with protein,3 mins to overeat the stuff and 3-4 days to return to previous BG values. We are human,so it happens, "sometimes".

    5.7 today, looking out for you @Pipp
    @ziggy_w and @Pasha not wishing to derail but I’ve recently started increasing protein and reducing fat, I find it keeps me fuller longer.
