    At just under £500 now, thought the diabetic world would have been more supportive but thank you all for those who have sponsored.

    All the very best of luck with your adventures @leedoak!
    One of the www.teambloodglucose.com team is an ex-navy pilot - he now works at trying to support and encourage others with diabetes (type 1 and type 2) to exercise more and exercise safely.
    If you need any help/advice around how to manage your BGs on your trek, please do get in touch and we'll offer what support we can.:)
