    How can I manage a non-diabetic hospital admission? Food served on most of the wards is very high carb, very few vegetables and puddings full of sugar. Staff wonder why BG not controlled .... hmmm let me give that some thought then!

    Yes, a common problem. What is almost as bad, when I was last in the food was badly cooked, bland, not a grain of salt in sight. My husband brought food in for me and I was able to keep it in the nurses' fridge. When I was totally desperate I had one of their egg sandwiches, which were factory produced and awful, so I had to be really desperate. There were omelettes but they were like rubber.

    It is time the dietitians who over see the menus and so-called nutritional value of it all have to taste-test each meal.
