    Good luck tomorrow. Be wary of the anaesthetic. It's part of the reason that they do diabetics first I believe. It takes a while to come around from and can really upset your BG levels (makes me seriously throw up for a good hour or 2 as well :( )

    Best wishes Andrew. I hope all goes well and you are back on your feet soon. I agree about taking a snack with you. Hospital food isn't diabetic friendly.

    I was drinking in a pub with a comedian friend once and I stupidly asked what I would have to do to lose 2 stone of ugly fat and he said I should cut my head off.

    Does the "c" at the end of that stand for carbohydrate, in your case? It's an excellent reassurance that all is well though.

    Nice added value.

    (Reading your updated signature, I'm astonished your BMI is still 27. Where does 25 put you?)
