4.4 today. Have a good day.
4.6 today. Have a nice day everyone
You make a very good point. I guess I am worried that I am usually in the 5s prior to teatime but the last few days have been 7s. My Libre this afternoon was at 3.7 for 90 mins which made me eat a biscuit just in case! Big disparency between testing strips and Libre atm. At least Libre gives me trends if not very true.
I too use up time, energy and strips seeking an accuracy that is just not on offer. This morning fasting I got 5.6. Not happy, so I instantly re-tested from the same drop of blood and got a nice 4.8. I considered using a 3rd strip, but then wondered what the point would be. Would I believe the 1st, 2nd, 3rd or an average of all 3?
The one time I tried a Libre sensor I also liked the arrows, but the Libre seemed to read much lower than my strips, which in turn read lower than my A1c
I think none of these readings are to be taken too much to heart. They do motivate me to try hard. As long as I'm not injecting insulin or taking insulin-producing meds, false lows should not alarm me too much. I'm not at all convinced that I can keep from being upset by false highs, though.
Thanks Alexandra that is such a great overview. I don’t have a complete pancreas after surgery in 2012 so I am always wary of losing the battle. You guys here are completely wonderful with your supportive insight.
5.3 for me
Early up and about, but I was so tired yesterday after a long run of 4 hour nights that I went to bed very early. I might have actually managed 7 or 8 hours last night. In a couple of lumps but still, better than I've managed the last couple of weeks.
7.6 - Good morning.
Just tested positive for covid so all exercise on hold, & working from home
Have a good day everyone
@DEBBIESCOTT hug for the positive and I hope and pray you have the mild version. @Widgets yay for the sleep and fbg. @ TeamD, don't be fooled by the Highlights Reel of those who seem to find managing The D easy and LC a joy. It wasn't always like that for them and isn't like that for most of us. @PenguinMum hang tough and keep the Big Picture front and centre.
Thanks @ianpspurs, just feel really tired & not affected blood sugar yet
4.4 this morning
4.0 today. Have a nice day everyone
Morning All. 6.4 today so calm. @Widgets and @DEBBIESCOTT I never under estimate quality sleep and rest. Take care both.
First time poster, recently diagnosed T2 and sent a meter with some lancets and strips. Tested a few times yesterday afternoon and had a range of 6.6-7.7 with dinner inbetween. My fasting reading this morning right after waking was 5.6.
Welcome @prhayes good to see you and spiffing first fasting number.
6.2 this morning, I have Covid so im taking that as a win
Unfortunately after a breakfast of natural yoghurt and low sugar granola, plus tea with semi skimmed milk, 2 hours later my reading is 9.4!!
Welcome and I hope The C is mild. Definitely a win under those circumstances.
