    5.6 this morning.
    However, had a bout of diarrhoea 10 minutes after waking (I had cream in my coffee yesterday, which doesn't agree with me when heated), so rested, only to have a hypo at 1pm. Great day eh

    If red wine and a cold keeps the red numbers at bay then, maybe I need to consider it an occupational hazard! Not the ideal preparation for three days in the Lake District though...

    I think that highly unlikely @Freema since I don't mix with anyone, and the only person anywhere near me during the last week or so was the nurse who vaccinated me on Tuesday. I'm wondering if it's from one of the vaccines? I had both the Flu and the Shingles ones

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

    5.2, my lowest fasting number yet, would have been better if it had been after an extra couple of hours sleep ! Have a great day folks.

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.
