    - Freestyle LIbre is convenient and pain-free
    - 3272 samples /14 days = 234 samples/day or 10 samples/hour
    - Average = 97, Minimum (Average) = 83, Maximum (Average) = 114
    - The lowest and highest readings happen after eating
    - I guess most doctors would consider this acceptable
    - This forum might consider me pre-diabetic

    - These reading were done using Glimp which does not have the Libre reader calibration
    - There is a combination of 1 minute and 15 minute readings
    - I eat OMAD (One Meal A Day) around 6 pm

    Looks pretty good. If you want to lower your numbers a little more you might try what I do which is eat-to-the-CGM that is to eat half your meal wait ½ an hour, eat the other ½. This should cut the head off the peak. You can tweak this further by figuring out exactly how long it takes for the approximate next low to happen and eating the second half then. This will put you in a very tight window which I would consider to still be OMAD.

    I am full blown diabetic even though I keep my avg. to 83. I’m almost OMAD. So while my FBG indicates non-diabetic, I know that eating a bagel will put me over 200 and take 4 to 6 hours to return to the normal range.

      Joe, thank you for the idea. Another thing that is effective is taking a walk after eating.

    Both are good points. And the knowledge about the bagel alone is something that so few people understand - yet so many have.
