    16 hour fast, almost 4 miles walked, 27 carbs ... and I went up from 6.4 to 6.5, the 5.9 of Sunday seems a distant memory !

    But, BD, your HBA1C looks great! A 66% drop since October 2020. Not going to let you forget that. Sunday? Neaf, it’s gone, but it’s assisting your overall numbers.

    I wish I knew what you are telling us. ;) Need to learn ianpspurs code. :):D
    Back here, a healthy looking 5.9. If only I trusted these meters and test strips I could be a happy girl with that.
