So happy to have woken up at 5.4 this morning. I’d been having a run of higher mornings.
I hope to use makaton at some point, as it will depend on the child's SEN. Whilst the speech and language therapist talked an escort put his hand up and did the 'toilet sign' and we all smiled and chuckled as the teacher allowed him to go
I will have to look up bloods and injection
ps I can now sign my name with finger spelling signs
That's a great start to the day
Morning everyone have a good day nippy out there today
I found this ;
To become a certified diabetes educator (CDE), applicants must first earn advanced degrees in medical fields such as nursing, occupational therapy, pharmacology, podiatry, nutrition or social work The NCBDE also requires applicants to work specifically with diabetes patients for a minimum of two years.

Good morning Karen
Oh no, I wanted to know what qualifications you needed to be a diabetes consultant
A bit of a hypo this morning, great start to do an 8 hour training session. Bf had the audacity to ask me why I’m moody, I guess he can’t relate because he doesn’t bleed on a monthly basis.
Btw naproxen is good stuff, but on a full stomach though if you are taking them.
Here you go:

If you are interested in working within the field of Endocrinology and Diabetes, you could contact somewhere like Leicester Diabetes Centre, or the Leicester University where they have a Centre of Excellence and strong educational portfolios, respectively.
I'm sure other Diabetes Centres or Universities have similar curricula.
It's grey but I'm happy, I am 5
Off to have my flu jab and then to buy some fat balls and to take my laptops in to have the screens changed. I've got one that works well but has a rubbish screen and the other's the opposite and keeps crashing. It's already frozen once this morning.
Man came about the loft conversion, eyes water
Morning robs x
Morning chaps, got a study day today and a gig tonight. Had a bit of a lie in, as I was pretty knackered after yesterday - a full day in uni doing child and infant basic life support and patient surveys, and then straight to the local ambulance station for an evening of community first responder training... All good stuff. Bloods could be better but they could be a whole lot worse, so I’ll take that.
@helensaramay here in Leeds our physios are attached to GPs. The receptionist gives you the appointment there and then. Unfortunately the physio at ours was going on holiday for 3 weeks. And I now have to wait for X-ray results before decisions are made on what I require. But it is certainly a better system. Cuts out paperwork and not knowing when appointment will arrive. I had no idea they had moved over to this method til last week.
Good morning everyone!
I hope you're all well.
@helensaramay I hope the Software doesn't frustrate you too much!
@MeiChanski Enjoy the training
Can anyone (or everyone lol) tell me what they use to keep their gadgets attached to them for the required length of time please?
My very first Libre came off after just 6 days, in all honesty this was partly my fault as I did knock it once. But even before the knock I could see it had lost it's sticking power on one side.
Now my 2nd sensor is at risk of coming away. For the past 3 days I have had a huge adhesive plaster covering it so it doesn't come off.
I've still got 7 days with this sensor & I was hoping there wold be some amazing answers/tips/products to assist me in securing it better going forward.
Thanks so much @helensaramay I will look into all of the above!
This morning I ordered a handful of Libre Patches from a website called Diabetes supplies. So I'll be giving them a go also.
Hopefully I can find something that works for me
It's amazing how one organisation can differ so much, I had to wait 6 months to see the physio after my GP referred me to them.
so no one eats couscous then? I had it last night with Moroccan lamb and as it transpires I lucked into bolus timing for it and guessing the correct amount of carbs BGs have been good but I'm probably about to undo all the good work, tub of Heroes has been deposited in the office - I am trying really hard............
I like Hypafix film. (I think it's the same as Tegaderm) I use a roll of 10mX10cm and cut 10X10 squares. Sometimes it keeps the whole 2 weeks and I only have to trim the edges, sometimes it needs a new one halfway through. If so, I don't bother with peeling off the old one, I just trim the edges and put the new over the old.
Thanks so much @Antje77
