    Thanks so much for the bread recommendation, will give it a try - I also love toast, particularly poached eggs on toast so have been missing that - thanks again :)

    Good morning
    Phone Larry libre 9.1
    Contour meter 6.2
    @ianpspurs hope you’re still doing extra at the gym for me
    Looks like blood sugar is playing nice with covid even if Larry isn’t
    Have a good weekend everyone

    4.6 at 6:30, but (yes, despite the time stamp) I had a good night's sleep. Sleep is good people, I highly recommend it.

    Morning Team D. New Swipey = "sensor not responding please remove and replace" :arghh:. Abbott need to be rousted up. What is a guy supposed to do about sub-optimal outcomes from supposedly textbook actions - Elsie included? @DEBBIESCOTT I'm gyming later so I will obey. Stay safe, eat yer high quality protein and greens, move about a bit, lift things and then just hope and pray.

    Afternoon All. Busy morning after finding 6.8 pn Libre and very unpleasant 7.6 the traditional way. However an hour after my slice of HiLo toast I tested 7.1 so happy with that even if it makes little sense! Happy Saturday!

    Hi type 2 here and because of that wasn’t given a test meter by diabetic nurse… managed to get a free meter through Contour.. tested. Myself for the first time this morning before break reading was 9 mmol,,, then tested again 2 hours after lunch which consisted of a sausage sandwich.. reading was 16mmol… should I be concerned
