    Hi All,

    I been been type 1 for 18months due to having most of my pancreas removed. (Long story).

    During this time I've had very good blood glucose control and also just finished an intensive type 1 course through my local NHS trust in Brighton.

    My question is I've been on Fentalyn patches since the operation and have been reducing doses til two weeks ago I completely come off.

    Since that point my sugars have been between 11-18. Has anyone else experienced this?

    I've spoken to my team are we are up-ing my insulatade by 6 units and keeping my rapid the same for now as I go to bed around 13 and wake up the same.

    I have read a report that said fentalyn has inhibited beta cells from producing glucose in rats but I've not seen any reports of it effecting humans.
