    There's another thing here.

    In my experience, my nutrition got far richer as soon as I left hospital, and so I needed to "up" my insulin dose as soon as I left. I also experienced the flip-side of the same thing when I had to go back into hospital - regular hypos in the middle of the night until I sussed that I needed to reduce my dose for the duration.

    Nutrition is hospitals is so poor these days ( you might say that's a good thing!) that you need to be aware.
