    @PenguinMum why an eye injection?:nailbiting:... I get scared of needles around arm so eye is not an area I could even begin to imagine the horrors of. Anyway best of luck.

    It could be the vaccination effect. Did you get AZ or Pfizer? Or could also be the higher pollen count in your area...it puzzles me how our body is able to produce so much glucose even without much supply of the raw material.

    Its because of Retinal Vein Occlusion (tiny leaky blood vessels causing blurry vision). Thanks for your good wishes, also to @DJC3.

    5.1 from Swipey defo not carbs or cals - probably linked to the knee and ankle outage. As you say @DJC3 impact on bg is tedious but I love what the morning bathroom scales show. There has to be a positive somewhere. Hug for the broken night @PenguinMum and top, top gal for hanging in there. Best wishes for the eye treatment, obviously not ideal but so important. All I need to do is whack in Naproxen and drink mucho tea - doable IMHO.

    Vaccination was weeks ago now (AZ). Hayfever is terrible this year though so you may have a point. I thought I’d grown out of it but it’s back with a vengeance.
    Btw I got the NHS app up and running, took a while for my GP to give me full access but that’s sorted now - still no MRI or EEG results though. Thanks again for telling me about it.
    (Ps sorry for going off topic a bit)

    Morning all. So 4.6 is what one gets on waking up an OAP. Wild celebration of Sashimi, salad and a lorra, lorra tea planned - red meat and alkerroll can wait until ???. Double vaxxed so hugs from grandchildren are my legal highs. Enjoy whatever you are doing safely.
