    At waking it was 6.2, and after being up for an hour and a half or so having only had black coffee and my morning meds, it rose to 7.1. Now, mid-afternoon California time, after lunch etc, it's at a nice 4.7. I know about the "dawn phenomenon" and... this ain't it. Unless somehow my pancreas and liver are on Hawaii time. But this is absolutely my normal pattern.

    So 6.5 for me but the number have been up since they have tried pulling me off of bolas and doubled my Metformin.

    Getting lots of "gastric issues" with the increased Metformin and they never calmed down when they tried a high dose when I was first diagnosed so we're going back to 2 x 500mg a day and increasing the Lantus but I expect higher numbers before we get dialled back in.

    Silly isn't it. When I was first diagnosed I wanted anything to avoid needles. Now that that've taken me off the bolas I just want back on. lol!

    Morning All 6.7 this morning. I visited. Friend’s garden and she had made Michael Moseley’s choc & beetroot ‘diabetic’ brownies especially for me so despite my better judgement I had one. BG jumped 6 points quickly came down but stayed higher than desired. But be ause I was wearing Libre I was able to show them so no repeats however well intentioned.

    Morning all. My fbg may well be the 4.5 Libre reckons but what does that mean anyhow? @PenguinMum awkward situation but seems as though Swipey helped smooth things over. @DJC3 it is always red meat that is to blame;). Only a problem here when SWMBO wants "Sunday roast" - that's just the way it is. Salad works (as well as LC ever will 4 me) the rest is mostly just a waste of ingredients, time and energy. Thunder looms here, meh.
