    Hi both meters are in mols, no special test strip for checking the meters calibration. I have not tried a comparison with gps either. Tested on the new metre today and it was 6.5 after dinner so I might have to just wait for the hba1c to be done. Thanks anyway ;)

    Is inconsistency an issue? You are doing so well to remain within a “range” can we now view this as possibly a good thing? Sure, I read others having low and stable and I get depressed and envious. I’m starting to “recognise” this maybe my, MY, healthy, status quo - maybe.

    I said it before, and I’ll say it again, you’re an inspiration to me. How? Your tenacity and adherence to evidence-based results. Keep it going - please :) .

    Welcome @weejanis. If you are fine with that level - showing you as insulin-dependent - I'll give a winner.

    The profile shows I am an insulin dependent diabetic but I am Type 2 but don't take insulin on Metformin slow release. Don't know how to change it.

    First time poster. My bloods are always high in mornings. Like 15’s then I struggle to get back to normal all morning. ‍♀️ I have the libre and shows all ok until 3am then starts to spike. I’ve heard about DF but any other ideas, or just another added bonus of Diabetes

    Let us know how it went and what the results are. It might be stress/worry raising those bgs, but do watch for ketones as well just in case it's heading to dka
