    Exactly what DCUKMod said. You are very, very, welcome. Just have a little patience with everyone if we are unsure of things like test result numbers or different health care practices - some of them vary considerably from country to country, and some of the numbers you see mentioned may not be familiar to you to start with. :)

    Hi
    I’ve just been recently diagnosed after severe DKA with a blood sugar of 70. I’m on Lantus and Novorapid, which suits me. I’m still struggling to get within target and can go from from 16 to 3 in 1 hour. I know what you mean about feeling isolated. Thank heavens for the internet
