So I abandoned the balmy Dorset coast to venture north to Bedford for a spell of dog-sitting for my sister. I came home with a hacking cough and near life-threatening man-flu! Sipping Benny-Lynne seemed to soothe the symptoms. Then by chance, I did a routine early evening test to find a record 14.5mmol. Now unless I had cough syrup on my fingers, this was unexpected, but I guess there must be a fair bit of sugar in it. Has anyone else been similarly lax, or does anyone have a home-remedy they would share with me? But be quick - I don't know how long I have left!!
