    6.4 this morning I started checking my sugars again 6 weeks ago after a sebaceous cyst on my neck got infected & would not respond to antibiotics. when I checked my morning sugars they were over 12. I started taking 2 Metformin 500mg XR tablet per day instead of one & I have now had a couple of reading of 5.4 & 5.5.

    My reading first thing was 5.7 with my normal meter. It's been between 5.7 & 6.1 for the last few days, despite even greater efforts to eliminate sugars & carbs. Previously I used to test just once a week (as that's all my prescription allows) & it varied from high 4's to mid 5's. Can't work out why it's suddenly a little higher. I also tested with a new meter this morning & it read 5.1. Now I'm becoming even more confused. (The old meter is still OK - as I also did a 'control solution' test).

    Suffer from pre-dawn spike up to 9 to 14. This morning was 9.4. Need to eat and move around a bit to bring it down. Otherwise it stays high until late morning. I think this is the only blot on my copy book as otherwise my sugars are generally under control - I just can't shift those morning readings down to the 5-6 that I would want. If I could my HYBA1C would probably be in target range instead of just in the red.

    5.3 this morning at 9.30am Canberra Australian time, this the lowest reading I have had since being told I had T2 in 2013. I must be doing something right.

    6.3 at 9.15am I think the mashed potato I had with my dinner last night was a bit on the large size.
