    Hello all,

    Haven't posted for a while. Fasting levels for the last five days were 5.1, 5.2 and 4.9. No readings for the last two days because I ran out of strips and the seller has been a bit slow posting the reorder. I guess it will be another two days before the strips will arrive.

    Welcome to the thread, @Umi2021, @CallMeAlan and @ThisCan’tHappen!
    @nutribolt -- Glad to hear that Magic seems to feeling a bit better. Keeping my finger crossed for your next HbA1c and that all your hard work will be paying off.

    What can be done... with a 7.1? - Mind you, I went to bed on a 7.2, plus a lousy night.

    5.9, it’s okay, thought it might be lower but can’t complain

    Yesterday 6.2 and I got a 4.8 this morning. It seems the difference is 3 dough balls and a piece of chocolate. Still adapting to repurposed carb living

    5.3 today, I’d started to think dropping a Metformin tablet was causing an increase , but perhaps not, or it was temporary.

    Grey day here in Northants today, running later.

    I'd prefer my numbers to start with a 5 but that's because I've got a cute roadster sitting outside that loves being driven. :)

    As to the HbA1c I'm hoping for good numbers but it's the first since going onto insulin and I'm on insulin because I royally screwed up on pills. Expecting a lot better but not 100% yet.
