    Hi @Gleary85, as you say his bloods are fine, it could be the weather, has he been sleeping ok?
    Sometimes I get really thirsty and I'm convinced it's because I'm high, but it turns out I'm just thirsty :hilarious:

    Thanks for the reply x
    Yep he’s sleeping great.. maybe to much sun the last few days and it’s catching up with him. As you say the weather could be draining him x

    It's easy to worry about these things. It might be worth checking his blood a bit more as the weather can have a funny effect on blood sugars, or if you think his tiredness and thirst is not just down to the weather it might be worth giving his DSN or GP a ring to put your mind at rest.
