Kebabs my fave mei and ive got to say my bloods are great when i have one 4 1/2 units and good to go
yeah i'm considering joining up to there online pharmacy i'll look into the Tee2
Finally they are back to working on the room putting shelving up. The handy man was busy with his regular job this last month. Crossing my fingers he doesn't get called in for a couple of days! We have the stuff to go in that room piled into another room and we need to get a sofa couch in there, but can't until stuff is back into it's room.
Tee2's bloods only, but it is a great back up meter and the strips are a reasonable price. (I'm quite happy getting a few boxes every few months and my GP's happy for me to have a box of strips for it on prescription every couple of months, as he knows what I use it for.) For me, it reads higher at the higher end of the scale than the Caresens Dual but nothing to pick and choose for readings under 10.
Weird we both had gluco models before we got a dual. Which do you think is better the dual or Tee2 ??
@Japes i just signed up for spirit health care pharmacy let's see how that goes if it works it will make my life easier as my current pharmacy has changed how they work and i don't like it much at all
Hello friends, I got back from the meet up and @Juicyj and @Jaylee are very sweet and welcoming. I think everyone that attended is now my best friend
Dual definitely better for me because it does both bloods and ketones, plus I'm sure it's more accurate than the Tee2 especially in the higher range. But, like I said, Tee2's a great back up meter.
Thank you so much for coming along - brilliant to meet you and @Jaylee, what an incredible bunch of t1 superheroes, such a lovely group. Hope Jay got home ok as he won the award for the most travelled this evening
got to admit that is awesome
Your not an idiot, your a woman juggling multiple balls, that makes you pretty darn clever IMO.
oops my BG is at 10.0 i knew that chocolate, mouse and caramel with extra chocolate sauce was a bad idea but it was the best thing iv'e tasted since i was in hospital it was worth it
It was fantastic to finally meet up with you @MeiChanski . Now change that "Southpark" avatar. It don't do you justice.
It was great chatting to you. If I retain my licence? It has to be done again. Yep I got home OK. Single lane southbound on the M5 with a fair bit of freight to still contend with. A little more shenangins with cones hitting the M4 East. Then fog as I hit the turn off for Bath..
Lol, I felt Waitrose treated you like a queen with all that free stuff on the way out...
As you know whilst comparing readings I started the evening at 4.6? Then stayed around 6.5 after a 5g fix..
Oddly I stayed above 5 on the journey home. Getting in. Found this..
Just to add my basal should have tailed of by about 22.00hours.. Seems like a "gig night" profile? Without the jumping about.
I also wasn't kidding when I said I had that NEO 2.1 system with the 15" sub in the back of my van!
Time for a musical interlude....
If it's also any consolation. I once got lost finding my way to the stage at a gig in a massive German ex post office hub.
Next to a major rail network line. Ironically enough..
@Jaylee Is my profile pic not to your standards? I’m glad you got home okay. @Juicyj wow, was it food and goodies? Did you manage to recover from 14.4?
Btw I bought a vegan salad from Waitrose and it wasn’t worth the money. Like I got three small pieces of butternut squash
Lol, @Juicyj was given flowers like a prom queen.. If also felt she deserved it..
Oddly, I was toying with the the offerings on sushi?. Love the stuff...
Glad I didn't.
On the ground in the Philippines. Just about to go out looking for lancets because I let my brother-in-law use my kit to check his blood sugar before I realised it was the last lancet in the cassette and I haven't packed any in the suitcase. What a numpty.
T1 - seems like there's always something!
Now that reiminds me back to the first time I left home in the. 80s HIV & all that... (Lol, it was time I had to go..) The only advice I got from my mum with any sort of inpaling device.. (it wasnt't all about using a condom.)
If your unfamiliar with using classic lancets, I can help you. I'm adept at driving the yellow ones home by hand.
When I do my privately blood tests, fro my time to time, they always send 2 lancing devices. They are brutal. Brutal. I know those tests require a larger sample than our standard finger prick test, but..... if I could find an image, I'd send it, so you'd know what to avoid.
