    @JohnEGreen : Thank you. How do you keep yours so low! I am wondering if I have to keep off carbs in the night. I seem to register lower numbers if I don't consume carbs. But surely, not having carbs is not good, right? So confused! Lol

    Consuming much reduced carbs is fine. Head over to the low carb forum for more info.

    It's a good feeling getting a low reading after a string of high ones, good on ya, keep it up.
    I find that if I eat anything after around 9.30pm I have get up to use the loo at least once and if I eat anything other than a gluten & sugar free snack my morning readings are higher. Try peanuts as a snack at night I had some a couple of days ago and they didn't alter my levels at all, good luck. Paul.
