    @Widgets, snap, this was exactly my experience today too (except that I only scored a fasting 5.0). Eerie! I consumed 2 cups of real coffee to my usual 1, and now after lunch am about to make myself a cup of decaff, if I can summon up the energy.

    unfortunately 7.5 this morning, very different to yesterday morning - taken at the same time following similar period of fasting (10 hours) - it was exactly the same as my post prandial check after dinner last night - still geting used to all of this, but early days...
