    Hi PD Oz,

    Hyperglycaemic Hyperosmolar Non-ketotic Syndrome (HHNS), which is what type 2 diabetics develop much more frequently than is the case with Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) is also a life-threatening situation. Both would need hospital admission for emergency medical care, and both could actually kill the sufferer if not taken care of ... and pretty urgently.

    Good luck.

    Thank you all for replying. My reading first thing in the morning. -fasting - is now 11. So coming down and later in the day comes down to 8 so I'm pleased with progress. I've cut down the alcohol a bit . Not drinking through the week and I feel more energised in the morning. On the up!!!! While my BG levels come down!!!!
