    They can be very good but can also be pretty bloody awful. I would advise caution until you establish exactly how it works for you. Some users seem to become obsessed with them and are not ready to consider that the Libre might be giving them spurious data. Once again they are good but I do not completely trust mine and would only recommend it as a minor part of my own condition management arsenal. I hope yours does exactly what you want from it for you.

    Hi Cumberland do you take your cholesterol tablets in morning or evening doctor didn't say,I've been put on Atorvastatin 20 mg
    I said I wouldn't go on statins again Has they caused me terrible cramps in night and itchy skin,doctors said this would be better it's newer than Simvastatin I was on 6/7 years ago. Not needed any meds upto going on high fat low carb diet but cholesterol has now crept up fron 4.5 to 7.5 so I needed to do something but cannot stand the side effects. Think I've been overdoing the fats and protein on the diet consequently high cholesterol and gout. K

    Diabetes rarely makes sense. Your waking 6.0 is obviously just a very minor blip. It is still a highly respectable waking number. The fact that you are now down to 4.5 just serves to highlight how good your control really is. Tomorrow is another day :)

    Simvastatin and pravastatin should be taken at night. Atorvastatin being more longer acting can be taken at any time. I just continue taking it at night

    Good morning all

    6,1 mmol/l as I continue to have a cold. No exercise walk today either as I try to shake this off.

    How ironic. It will be sunny where I am I'm in about 5 months. It will last about 2 days like it always does. Enjoy the sun and yes, yes yes I'm insanely jealous :)

    Kulungile isizwe sami sesifo sikashukela samaqhawe aseZulu futhi ungaphonsa kimi imikhonto egazi. This morning it feels like somebody is using my head as a tambourine. I have a headache given to me by Beelzebub himself. A hypo,of Old Testament proportions at 2.00am this morning has kicked my proverbial harris. My rebound blood sugars are at 8.5mmols. I had a Libre sensor fail me and things just spiralled down from there. Have a great day to all of you :)

    In the end the idea of starting the month with the exercise counter stuck at zero was too unattractive, so I got my walking shoes on and hit the road despite my cold.

    Just finished my 5km walk. Not the fastest time I have ever done but at least I am begining to make inroads towards November's target of surpassing the total distance walked in October of 206km.

    I wish everyone a happy and above all else healthy month of November with a photo taken in the garden,

    good morning all :)

    4.9 today

    Stress definitely goes for me, I found out yesterday afternoon that I may have to go down to Lancashire again in another month to deal with some final 'executor' admin. in person :( just when we thought it was all sorted.
    I was awake half the night and Mr gee is fed up already at the thought of another spell in the traffic near Manchester, we're just not used to it any more. FB was 4.1 yesterday and then 4.9 today.

    Never mind, it's mild here this morning and if it stays fine I may take MIL's wee dog for a nice long walk :happy:

    @Ymdawd it's a pleasant mild morning up here in the Highlands, I hope your journey is a good one :)
