    7.2 this morning. Not as good as yesterday, but good on average. I still worry about hypos with my insulin (which I have just started taking again) so am reluctant to inject as much as I need to sometimes. I did go down to 4 yesterday (during the day), which makes me feel ill, and can't concentrate, as I am used to it being much higher than that, so it affected my regieme for the rest of the day. Went to bed at 5.2, woke up at 7.2.

    Thanks @DJC3 it was pretty tough, haven't taken exams for 20 years. Results due in July, so a while off.

    I was doing the same thing, just about eating carnivore every day for quickness. Bloods were fairly ok but on the high side of what I like to see; hovering around low 6s high 5s during the day. Last couple of days I have have reduced my protein considerably had broccoli and spinach cheese bake the first day and yesterday it was leek and mushroom cheese bake. Likely my cholesterol will be shooting for the stars as both are made with cream, butter and cheese, but I don't care - bloods were 4.7 at lunchtime. - definitely an improvement - a conundrum and always perplexing.

    Slept in a bit today so it was 7.2 at 8.45. 6.5 yesterday at 7.30, amazing how quickly it rises in the morning if I don't hit the insulin fast! Lovely here with no rain, off out on the bike to go and see a friend and sit in her garden putting the world to rights. Hope everyone is having a good bank holiday weekend.

    This is very interesting but is starting to drift off topic. I can move into a new thread If you want?

    @Ryhia @DJC3 @Annabell and @Pipp do you want me to move and merge into new thread?

    Hi There, my blood sugars are normally between 4 & 6 in a morning. This morning i was 5.4 which is fine for me.

    It worked well as a sort of 'first thread to check' each morning and post to.

    I'll start.

    This morning was a 5.6mmol for me. That's about normal for me

    What about you?[/QUOTE]
