    11.0 today but it’s a lot better than the 19.8 earlier this week. Seems Gliclazide is doing the trick

    5.6 on Swipey and just over 74 kgs on the scales (I'm approx 6ft tall). No Elsie, those simply don't cut it babe. Welcome @Arizona. Great news @BrianDoc; top stuff @DEBBIESCOTT. @JohnEGreen hugs. @DJC3 lovely fbg but missing meals?? I've a flu jab and homecoming wife to deal with today. I'm completely certain one of those is entirely in my best interests:angelic:

    3.8 (8:00am)

    A touch low. Glad to see this really, looks like it might be time to jettison this remaining daily 1000mg of metformin and be medication free.

    Have a great weekend everyone!

    Well, well. Forgot to take Metformin yesterday. Had covid jab. Feel like I have been put through the wringer, with what seems to be a bit of an allergic reaction, yet Whoopee for me, with a 5.2 , best fasting number in ages, and all other obs, (BP, oxygen sats, peak flow breathing, and lateral flow test neg) all in perfect range.
    Confused , but not complaining.

    @ianpspurs no real intention to miss dinner but I got home later than expected and couldn’t be bothered with meal prep, was ravenous by bedtime but way too late to eat by then. Happy with fbg but it’s unlikely to be a common occurrence.
    Hope both of your days events turn out to be in your best interests.
    @JohnEGreen hope you are ok now - I’ve always coveted a Blue Peter badge!

    5.8 this morning, and that was after a handful of Thornton's chocolates last night (albeit a pretty low carb day overall). No idea what the take away from that is but if that is the cross I have to bear for good levels, so be it
