    5.2 on Swipey - won't change the numbers however I feel about that. Like the rest of us, I'll have another go today. Of course, significant variables will make comparisons meaningless. Don't tell anyone that though, let them figure it out themselves.

    Hello @Freddy 77 . Welcome. Despite what @ianpspurs said we are , in the main, not at all mad as a box of frogs. Just one or two of us.

    my morning fasting level today, despite sticking to low carb, and remembering to take meds on time, was a menacing 8.1, :arghh:. Oh well guess I can blame the covid booster jab, on Friday, and the hacking cough I have developed since, as I go off for a bit of quality sulking. At least the lateral flow tests are showing negative.

    Fbg 5.8 daily hypos so I was straight into a breakfast. Protein filled. ;)
    Officially off insulin but heavy bouncing around bgs on 2 daily metformin. I must admit I had better management on insulin, for now.
    Fresh look at food eating times may help more with my fluctuations.
    My stress levels hv been very high lately due to suspected Cauda Equina MRI via A&E and struggling to walk is hugely frustrating with a vibrant 8yr old to keep active in some damp days.
    I hope everyone is well and conquering their personal current aim. :) :) :)
