    7.5 today!

    It’s a new box of strips so a bit worried they’re inaccurate. Might have a buy another box to double check.

    Found my other meter (prescribed by doctor) and it was 8.3 after a pepperami and bit of cheese so the 7.5 looks accurate. I’m so pleased.

    Hi DEBBIESCOTT, do you mind me asking why you use up to 3 different means of testing your BG .

    Only do it first thing, then mainly trust the libre
    When your gp says it’s killing you & other people would be flat on their back with your blood sugar it does make you paranoid

    Thank you I was just curious as to why you have so many testing devices . Your amazing physical work out regime must be doing your levels a lot of good . All power to you :)

    6.8 meh

    I find if I eat anything after 7pm it reflects in my morning read. My eating window was until 8pm so will now make it 7. Lesson learned!

    Have a good day all
