    Can you tell us what type you are and what meds have you dropped?

    Hi Jo-Anne, you must be feeling pretty awful then. What was it that was stopped and also why ? Most of us will have suffered from a massively too high blood glucose level at some point, I guess, so we know how you must feel. Are you cutting out some carbs to try and bring your levels down ? Really sorry you're in this situation.

    We can't really help until you give us a bit more information.

    How about how long you have been diagnosed, what type, what medication, what you normally eat during the day?

    This will give us a little bit to work on.

    Can you contact your health care professional about it?

    She may be lost. Not been seen since she posteed. When I first started on this forum, I found navigation a problem and lost lots of posts at first. Maybe someone could PM her and give her a link back to this thread. I am making too many mistakes at the moment to do it.
