    Hi @karen8967 Yes you need to do a correction for this, test every hour, have a cup of tea or go out for a walk and take some deep breaths, it will get sorted, hopefully the stress will lessen too, take care x

    Hi @karen8967 yeah definitely do a correction dose and as @Juicyj has said very regular testing. Try and do something to take your mind of it a bit (that's easier said than done) x

    Thank you @helensaramay, I have not seen that. On what we know now and what was reported in the trials I would personally not be touching it. And what does 'inadequately controlled' mean ? That is a pretty vague term, am I inadequately controlled because I cannot stop eating Nutella,? or because my dietitian will not prescribe a low carb diet because her registering authority will de-register her if she does? , or is my doctor not up to date on what is the best insulin regime for me or is it that my HBA1C is not so crash hot and nobody cares so add another drug???
    Cynically it sounds like somebody trying to increase sales but not without some risk. Big Pharma tries to rule again. But I hope the NHS is more sensible than its European counterparts !!!

    if i could maybe throw in my tuppence worth on the Forxiga tablets. My wife was diagnosed with type 2 about 10 years ago and was prescibed tablets only. She was given Metformin and ad changed to another tablet as this was having other issues with her body. She has always been a little overweight, aged about 50 when diagnosed, 5ft 7 and 14 stone or thereabouts which she had been for about 30 years.

    Since moving to Forxiga about 3 years ago, she has lost almost 3 stone in weight and her Hba1C has improved by about 30%. One of the possible side effects of tablet was increased/excessive urination, but she has never suffered this.

    It would seem that Forxiga may be able to help those who are overweight and used in conjunction with insulin may help improve HBa1C

    @karen8967 . What an absolute sh*t thing to have happen. Patio doors seem to be a “go to “for the scum brigade.
    Hope you regain a sense of being secure again before to long.

    Karen, when you get to the bottom of the week’s pit start scrabbling up again - it’s been beyond horrible for you! If the old wives’ tales are anything to go by then you’ve had your 3 bad things in a row now so the only way is up. I can imagine how totally awful your house being broken into was; every time him indoors is away I wake at the slightest sound, but the real thing is dreadful. Not at all surprised your blood sugars rose, just surprised they didn’t go any higher.
    Do you have a dog? Do you like dogs? I used to have the dog in the bedroom with me when we had one and him indoors was away. This was in a different country: the dog had a really terrifying bark, snarl and growl, despite really being a frightened softie, and ours was the only house in the row that wasn’t burgled.
    Hug, hug, hug.

    You have a fair point there @kitedoc but I do not think the article referenced tells the whole story and if you add in what I found:

    Just out of interest on the Forxiga tablets the main aim is along the following:

    it has recently been approved by the EU as a treatment (in addition to insulin) for type 1s with BMI ≥ 27 kg/m2, when insulin alone does not provide adequate glycemic control despite optimal insulin therapy

    Plus what @smc4761 said as well it sort of makes sense for some but I do not think it will be rolled out for all T1D's

    Really sorry to hear that, Karen, a nasty shock for you. Just glad they did get scared off.

    My basal tends to change my BG with an hour's lag.

    In other news, I can't believe no-one's mentioned the great King Tubby in reference to dub. But the Propellerheads' drummer was one of the most impressive I've ever witnessed.

    Good morning Wednesday guys :) Awoke on a 6.4 this morning so a top banana to that :) and a great start because, I am going back to a job I did last summer and I have another one in the pipeline, so hoping to combine them both at some point. Buses have all changed :wideyed: to the location and they don't stop at the big supermarket anymore, so as I don't know the area well for walking, I have had to book a taxi.
    Promoting Lindt chocolate, front of store, so a big event today.
    Wishing you all a safe and a happy day :)
