      Hi Donnellysdogs

      Have a big favour to ask....hope you can help me.

      Know you're on Insight pump. I've been on it since early summer with absolutely no problems and then i checked blood sugar an hour ago and all of a sudden i keep getting m-27 warning saying that no communication with pump and remote says pump is unavailable. Really not sure what to do and hope you can help.

      Thanks

      Hey there @donnellysdogs,
      I spotted in a thread that you said you had referral from your GP to a gym and personal trainer. That sounds brilliant! - do you know if that's something just local to you? Could you let me know more? It's so great to hear that you've had excellent support and it would be interesting to see if that could be made more widespread.

      I am fairly recently diagnosed diabetic, on 2g Metformin also 120mg Glyclazide per day. My blood/glucose is still 11.4. If I go on Insulin will this mean I am Type 1 diabetic?

      Hi again

      I'm writing about the glucose monitoring lenses for wetechhealth and I'd love to quote you. Any chance of some responses to the following?

      Do you wear contacts?
      How do you monitor glucose levels and what's it like?
      Would you be interested in the lenses? why?

      I'd also like to name you in the article if you can give me your real name.
      My email is gareth_john_m@hotmail.com
