tartanbee ........No offence intended at all.... but dont spend your time looking at text books and quoting DAFNE.......Every Diabetic (All 350 Million worldwide) ARE different. Folks will always know what works for them and thats the way it is !!!!!!! You tend to trust what works the quickest and most effective - Hypos are not nice things to happen - My 3 year old girl has a look of deep concern when I have them with her around..... bless her heart, let alone my lovely lady who puts up with me being erratic, moody, vague and a whole host of other symptoms - most of which I am not aware of. And then theres the rebound thing !!!!!!! Ohh and Ive been type 1 since 1983.
