    Morning all. I’m T2 and have a FBG at 8 this morning. I don’t usually test but have been advised to for a few weeks.
    Yesterday I had weetabix and went up to 12. 90 mins later I was at 6.1 and feeling very weak, clammy and shaky.
    Need to understand what’s happening. This morning I’ve had yoghurt and raspberries and will test in an hour.
    Sorry if I’ve posted in the wrong.

    So - 2 hours after a breakfast of yoghurt and raspberries and a coffee with lacto free milk I scored 7.1

    . I think I’m happy with that? Should I be?

    Welcome @Lindap118. You posted your FBG and gave us some background so this is the right thread.

    Morning all. I fell off the wagon yesterday with a great big thump! Ate everything that I shouldn't and went to bed on a 10.5. 7.8 this morning. Have a bad head so it serves me right but I am so sick of being diabetic :banghead::banghead::banghead:

    Have a hug and a prayer @RosemaryJackson. Despite everything you are still testing and posting not just giving up. You must be a really good person to be tested in such ways.

    Awww Rosemary {{{{hugs}}}} - but 7.8 isn’t TOO bad, is it? Not for a first thing in the morning reading? Yesterday is gone; no, 10.5 isn’t great, but you clearly didn’t stay that way all night, and today is a new day, and your FBG was lower than the day before.

    Mine is usually between 9 and 12
    I don't take much notice of it ... the longer I've fasted at night the higher it is when I take a reading next day

    the hospital gives figures in one set of units for their 3 monthly checks and the meter for daily home checks uses different ones.. which is to be frank not much help at all

    The lack of informative, relevant and urgent diabetes knowledge is appalling. You’ve never had the option to be taken through what it all can mean. You’re not alone, really you’re not. Our society is drowning in an ocean of sugar and what we get back is “eat more whole foods and definitely pasta and rice”…. What a load of horse manure….

    FBG of 7.4 ... was hoping better expected worse. Good weekend with family though and I like a good BBQ and a few beers. Maybe more meat and less potato bake next time. LOL

    Happy Mothers Day to any mums out there.

    Good morning all. It’s 7.7 for me this morning. I did have a spaghetti Bolognese with red wine and a G&T last night. after 2 hrs I was at 9.8 which is lower than when I had porridge or weetabix. I am rather confused by it all ‍♀️
    I’m only just starting to test FBG and had expected a worse result this morning.
