    Let’s talk about anything, blood sugars before bed, blood sugars upon waking, what we eat, what we don’t eat, what we eat but shouldn’t really.... lets pass the time with a bit of friendly chit chat

    No problem to start this thread of course, but have you found some of the existing chatty threads already?

    For instance there's https://www.diabetes.co.uk/forum/threads/type-1stars-r-us.150597/, which would fit you as a LADA;
    https://www.diabetes.co.uk/forum/threads/what-was-your-fasting-blood-glucose-full-on-chat.173162/, which is a mixed bunch and lots of chat, plus of course fasting blood sugars;
    This one is in the low carb section, should this appeal to you, mainly about food but enough chat as well: https://www.diabetes.co.uk/forum/threads/what-have-you-eaten-today.155651/

    There are more, have a peek and see if you like them. Just keep an eye on the thread subject (it doesn't do to tell about having 3 croissants and a banana for breakfast on the low carb section for instance) and the amount of chat fitting to the thread :)

    Without doubt the most selfish act a person can perform in front of someone who has diabetes. Unless said person is willing to share?!

    Exactly what I thought! Nice to have it confirmed.

    Has anyone got a biscuit that they eat they could recommend? I’m type 2 and been so good since my diagnosis at end of Feb this year...... I can feel I need something but have this far snacked only on dark chocolate and dry roasted peanuts
