      Hi

      I saw your post about Insulin supplies in Thailand.

      I am travelling with my other half who is diabetic and we may need to re-supply in Bangkok - do you have any info on how to do this or where to get levemir/novorapid?

      Thanks

      Brad

    Type 1 diagnosed age 51 on MDI. Using Tresiba and Novorapid
    Recent convert to Dexcom G6 CGM (self funded) - my best ever move!

    HbAc1 at diagnosis 126 mmol/mol, over last decade have averaged too often around 75-64 mmol/mol.
    But latest HbAc1 50 mmol/mol (March 2020) after 6 months CGM and only 5% of time hypo,
    G6 now forecasting 41 mmol/mol if I stay on track. :)
    Only strict low carb works for me, but hard work!
