    6.7 this morning. After forgetting to test until after cleaning bedrooms, including cleaning the windows, and bathroom, So late test, and as my liver has anticipated, I will have a hot cross bun for brunch and accept the consequences. Just to celebrate @DJC3 ‘s birthday. (Who can celebrate not having same reading as me, today).

    5.5 this morning - I got a trial Libre sensor and I am finding the data from that really interesting. After watching DP and then a further rise at breakfast I have started intermittent fasting, switched my Metformin SR back to full dose with evening meal rather than split dose and have seen an immediate flattening of the peaks and very nice numbers after lunch and supper. I wouldn't have known with just finger post prandial data. Only 3 days so far but encouraging.

    6.1

    not too sure where that came from, too many fried onions on fish curry? Bad dreams and unsettled night?

    Who knows? It's just one number among many.

    Cheers @ziggy_w

    4.8. My numbers after my Hot Cross Bun treat require that it is my last. Goodbye old friend, it was a blast.

    6.6 - I’ll take that.

    I went to bed on a 8.3 after eating 4 croissants during day and for supper French stick used to mop up the gravy from mussels - delicious! BTW, croissants were for breakfast, mussels were for supper! Anyway, with my HBA1C having dropped three points to 49, my insulin resistance must’ve been lowered to get this overnight “drop”, added to which I had a lousy night sleeping.

    4.4 just now as am into nearly 4.5 days (107 hrs) of fasting. The average of readings in last 24 hours as 4.0.

    I will be breaking my fast possibly in another 3 hours or so. I have not been feeling low on energy or any weakness of any kind and wanted to take it to 120 hours to get the good round number of 5 days but Mrs. Nutribolt will have none of it and I love her for being so caring - am one lucky man. :happy:

    Have a great Saturday everyone. :)
