    Up to 5.2 today - I guess that is due to OH's "oh a little pasta won't do you any harm" last night.

    That sounds good. Mine 7.0 this morning. Higher than it has been. I have had readings in the main between 5.3 and 6. I have been and still am on the blood sugar diet attempting to reverse my diabetes type 2. I have been doing relatively well and have lost 24 lbs. Had a lovely day yesterday at a Spa which included a gorgeous breakfast and buffet lunch. Afraid I was tempted and had more than my 800 Cal daily allowance and did have rather more fruit than usual - hence the raised BS reading at 7. A return to the diet today with a vengeance is called for. Well done to all of you who are in the range.

    5.3 Got up two hours later than usual, hence a bit higher than usual. Maybe DP?

    6:45am 5.1. As soon as I woke up, but then steadily climbed whilst I got showered and dressed to around 7.2 before I had breakfast.
    Interesting as I now have a libre freestyle tester. I would not previously have tested as soon as I woke up, I would have been up a short time so would never had seen the lower reading. The reader showed that during the night it dropped as low as 3.4!(12;30am) then at 2:25 am it went up to 6.6, then at 5:24 was 6.1.

    Morning. 6.3 today.

    Bit of a change in routine today - full day of meetings outside the office, so off for an early morning walk shortly to get my exercise in for the day.
