    @hankjam my OH’s heart has the occasional hiccup - missing beats, extra beats, fast heart rate - spent an interesting evening in A&E when his heart rate went up to 180 bpm for about 5 hours - just as they were debating shocking it it decided to behave. They upped the Bisoprol which worked but increased his asthma symptoms. Ironically he has a pace maker because, following major heart surgery which damaged his sinus node, his heart beat is too slow!

    Either 4.3 or 4.6 on Swipey both ok (ish) I suppose. @DJC3 thank you. Suffolk tree pollen is defo not for me. @nutribolt hope you feel better soon. @CotswoldsBloke best wishes for A1c - should be a breeze. @Andydragon so you should be pleased. @Tannith stunning drop in OGT. @PenguinMum hug for higher fbg than you want - even with FFF (SSAS here today :woot::woot:) @1970clea this may not please you but everyone I met within a year of retiring said you look so much younger and healthier (you know, that first 2 days back after summer look) - guess what I did for almost 4 decades?

    Thank you @Daphne917 , I hope your OH is in a good place at the mo and that things have settled!! It is a bit of a worry as I don't seem to be getting much feedback as to what is going on.... hope for some news soon... I think my trigger is probably eating something too quickly and giving myself indigestion, wind and then it kicks off.... so less bolting of food required!!
    Take care

    Late again for posting - have been having a bit of busy schedule these days. Thanks for the kind words @DJC3 , @ziggy_w and @ianpspurs.

    7.2 at 8.30AM this morning. The average so far has been 7.4 and max it went was 8.9 at around 3PM. Its 20 hours into fasting right now and reading is 7. :(:(

    I just have to keep reminding myself that these readings are without any medication for diabetes, so it's still all good. I am repeating this to myself every time I look at the 7.6+ reading - "Up until Sep'20 readings were in double digits even with medication, so it's all good...stay the course."

    Anyway Friday evening - weekend is about to start - Have a good one all. :)
