I do keep a food diary. Had a bit more protein last night but ate about 6.30pm. Would it make a difference as there are near on 7hrs between eating and the spike? I didnt have anything else after, only a coffee about 9pm
fattier and protein heavy meals can cause a spike a lot later than what a carb heavy meal would so yes it could be the difference in why it only seems to be occasional but you'd need to check what you'd eaten the other occasions too to see if there was a pattern there xx

@Ditto bite the bullet and ring your doc, best not to leave it and it will put your mind at rest. A Winnebago sounds great, my friend wants one. We love our caravan but have had to take a hit this year as we normally rent it out to help with the huge site fees but we’ve cancelled everyone this year to be on the safe side, at least we will get more use out of it. When hubby retires (he should have already) it will have to go as wont be able to afford it but will enjoy it whilst we can :)

Aahh ok. Will need to have a look back at food diary and keep an eye over the next few days then. Lots of mornings i've woken in the 6s and 7s after having a spike overnight. When i mentioned it to the DSN she said not to worry unless it was consistently high in the morning.Thank you. Am now down to a more respectable 5.9.

5.9 for me this morning.

And another lawyer’s conference call Zoom thing today. About to serve letter of action as the defendant is being incredibly stroppy and aggressive in their response to solicitors letters etc. Should be a nice little payout at the end of all this though as it’s pretty much a cut and dried case which nobody understands why the other side seems reluctant to settle.
I think they’re trying to scare us off by just driving up their costs, which we’d be liable for if we lose, but they don’t know that we have not only the insurance but also benefactors happy to cover and costs beyond those insurable.

I must apologise to you all for the atrocious weather we’ve been having. It must be because off the parasol I got on Saturday!

Morning all. A 6.3 today after a lie in until 8.20! Mr Eggy got up before me and that never happens! It must be him that keeps me awake. This time yesterday I had almost finished my chores, at this moment I’m still in my PJs waiting for my bolus to kick in! We are venturing into town later today for the first time since reopening. Can’t say I’m looking forward to it but we have birthdays to buy for, we need new towels and My Eggy wants some new T shirts. I thought about carrying on buying on line but I do want the high street to survive. We’re not going to go until about three, should be fairly quiet but then. Wish me luck! Have a good Thursday, it’s rather damp here, again! :(

Hi all. 6.1 after a strange day yesterday, diabetes wise that is. As I was up late I only had a small breakfast so was hungry 3 hours later, obviously I still had breakfast insulin on board and wasn’t really sure what to do, I went ahead anyway and had what my lunch decreed. Walked into town, around it and back again, 7 miles carrying a rucksack and a bag of, not heavy, shopping. A bit hot and sticky. Home at 4pm. By 6 as I popped the fish stew in the oven, I couldn’t remember words, let alone say them. BGs down to 4.1. Didn’t want to take any insulin as stew quite low carb and had half a glass of wine in the meantime and intended to have the other half and probably another one. So had two small pieces of crusty bread with it. 8.9 at bed time but didn’t do a correction and it appears it worked. It was strange not shooting up for my tea though.
Ironing day today, which is just as well as the rain is set in for the next two days. Have a fun Friday whatever you decide to do.:)

Ooo, v posh. Have a lovely holiday!

Morning folks. 9.9 here...not unhappy with that cos it was Hypo Central here yesterday.:D

Eventually spoke to endocrinologist (after forgetting my appointment, der)...his secretary was very helpful. He said he’d let me know when their DAFNE courses start up again and get the pump nurse to ring me for a phone consultation. Amazing!:D

5.3 on sensor for me this morning. 4.6 with finger prick. Double checking atm as new sensor yesterday went haywire, showing LO for a long time while finger pricks showing 4.6. Later, seemed to right itself but not having a lot of confidence in it, hence the finger prick. Graph now shows i had a very long hypo when i didn't. Abbot sending a replacement and i need to send this one back. Have a good friday everyone
