    Hi Dougal and welcome to the forum :) There are plenty of Type 1 members here who will soon be along to give you some advice and help. In the meantime, although you have been diabetic for a long time, this is some general information, parts of which will help you. Ask as many questions as you like as someone will have an answer for you.

    Hi Dougal and welcome. If you're not sure where to start, read Daisy's post for new members. Good place to start. Then ask questions and work out a strategy that suits you.
