      Hello, sorry I have been so long, but I don't come on the computer very much.Hope you don't mind me asking you questions,if you do just don't answer. When did your diabetes start, and how did you find out. Mine started in 06,and I should have been before that,(but that is another story) I am only on tablets, and they seem to do the job. Hope you are doing well. Will get back here soon Keith x

        Hi Keith, sorry for the long absence! Life suddenly got very busy, as it does when you could least do with it hehe! Hope you are finding your feet around the forums, I'm sure you will pick it all up just fine, but if there's anything you need to know just ask, there's pretty much someone of all ages here, diabetes isn't fussy who it picks. Hope you are well, catch up soon, Mandy x

Take care.
