There's another thing here.

In my experience, my nutrition got far richer as soon as I left hospital, and so I needed to "up" my insulin dose as soon as I left. I also experienced the flip-side of the same thing when I had to go back into hospital - regular hypos in the middle of the night until I sussed that I needed to reduce my dose for the duration.

Nutrition is hospitals is so poor these days ( you might say that's a good thing!) that you need to be aware.

For dealing with a cold, I like to make sure that I have a stash of sugar-free meds on help. At the start of the season I always buy a few boxes of the sugar free Theraflu/NeoCitran, cough drops, and cough syrup. These things suddenly become hard to find when you're sick.

Ah, interesting info.

This might partly explain why my numbers seem to have recently become much higher than usual.
Not that i am not entirely to blame but its become a bit of a vicious cycle when ill, feeling sorry for oneself and cheating with foods you know you shouldn't have :D

Had to have a temporary stent installed in January, a stent that is known to cause UTIs. Never had a UTI before but came down with 2 right afterwards and 2 bouts of antibiotics later now dealing with a slight bacterial infection they cant yet diagnose BUT.....this could explain why the sudden increase in my BS levels.

thanks for the new link as the first one did not work

You would have to explain your situation a bit better but bear in mind that the defining factor are people's blood test readings.
What I mean by that, not everyone with kidney issues will follow the same diet. Some damaged kidneys need half the potassium as a person with a set of healthy kidneys whilst someone on dialysis will often need more. If you have kidney issues, you need tests and the advice of your Nephrologist. In hindsight, some of my damage was created partly by having one too many cooks in the kitchen without any one of them speaking to the other, which had me almost bouncing of walls with different information. Unfortunately I was never sent to a Nephrologist, let alone aware of what they did. Had I done so earlier, I would have saved myself a lot of frustration, not to mention that i think the medical system would have saved themselves quite a bit of money :D

If you go into more detail I might be able to help or at least put you in the right direction for help.
