2 weeks ago I had a reading of 7 and fully expected this result to be heading sky high as it is now 7 weeks since I stopped taking statins. This morning, I had a fasting reading of 4. This has totally thrown me. In order of probability I reckon this could be:
1. User incompetence. Perhaps I am just not getting enough blood on the stick.
2. Inaccuracy of monitor.
3. I still have the effects of the statins.
The only thing I have done differently over the past 2 weeks is take more exercise. Term has started, so I walk 40 minutes to work and back, and now go swimming 3 times a week instead of 2, but I have only lost a measly 2lb.
Just as this is getting more puzzling, I have run out of testing strips and will have to make a trek to my nearest Lloyds Pharmacy. Maybe I will ask for their pharmacist to do a check.
