    4.6 on Swipey first off. Good news on the running @HeliGary. @Estragon good news on A1c improving and yes, The D is mysterious. For some of us all we can do is throw everything at it and hope something works eventually. For others LC is wonderful and works a charm.

    Morning All. 6.0 this morning after a second day of sub 10g carbs so @Estragon I feel your pain. Its mysterious. I popped on a spare Libre yesterday and I only dropped after I ate (eg 9.7 before lunch, 6.9 2 hours later) otherwise flatlined around 6 mostly even through the night.

    Well, this is weird.... Thanks Guys for your positive comments, to my earlier Post, but I can’t see it now!? Seems like a whole Page has gone AWOL.

    Any ideas Moderators?

    5.8 today, not as good as yesterday but better than the day before so it’ll have to do.
    @Estragon I don’t really know the answer, it’s a mystery to me too but if you are gradually chipping away at your HbA1c I’d take that as a very positive sign.
    Hugs @PenguinMum it can be so disheartening, hope the Libre gives some insight.

    My fasting results most mornings are never much higher than 5.2.

    Why is there a lot of emphasis put on fasting glucose levels?
