    6.9 this morning before breakfast and 4.9 by lunch. I can live with that. No need to grumble into my coffee today.

    8.1 - I know why and, once again, confirms I do have a condition known as T2D.

    Today? Delivering my DIY Project and after Dentist checkup. I hope Mr D doesn’t have any DIY projects of his own for my gnashers!

    I hope the dental project is a complete success and you sail serenely through your day. Moreover, I hope and pray the same serenity and a beatific smile adorns the visage of all here regardless of life's adversity - including meter readings. Go Team D.

    5.0 for me this morning not drawing any inferences from that as after being 3.7 yesterday in the morning managed the dizzying heights of 14 .5 after lunch.

    Judith had her well women checkup this morning and the nurse drew blood for blood check including a HbA1c test seems they include it now for women of a certian age.

    Good job realy as we have been tracking her blood levels over the last week and they gave me cause for concern her FBG this morning was 7.0.

    Hope Judith is feeling ok, @JohnEGreen , and the results of tests are favorable. My best wishes to her, and your good self.
    I am cross with my new meter, as it gave a 6.4 this morning. Had been used to nice steady 5s with old meter. Who knows? Perhaps I had been lied to with the old one, but I hope it is the new one that gives false readings. Whatever!! Plodding on.:angelic:

    5.8 this morning, after a rubbish sleep between waking myself up and the pup waking me 7 times according to Fitbit. Then when I finally gave in the battery on my meter had died so I was up about an hour before I jagged myself, things can only get better !!

    5.2. Then had eggs with cream and cheese for breakfast instead of my usual shake — same amount of protein but so much more filling!
