    I admit that I haven't touched coke, pepsi or other fizzy drinks for a long time now. My dentist told me that even though I was having the unsweetened variety, the acids in the drinks munches away at tooth enamel and does very real damage.

    I love my teeth more than I love fizzy drinks, so I stick to plain water, flavoured water (cold infusion bags) or coffee/rooibos now.

    I will admit to having a filter jug because our local water tastes gross. I filter it and it tastes fine. Dentist told me to be sure to use fluoride toothpaste if I'm filtering the water, and I blindly obey....

    There's milk in there. I call it the B1 after the tea chart I saw a while back. :)

    Update on granddaughter, she looked so young in the bed, but talking and telling me what the pain was like yesterday. The MRI scan is now tomorrow and they think it could possibly be inflammation of the liver ?

    Appointment for the pain clinic this afternoon was cancelled, 10 mins before I got to out patients !! The lady told me the appointment had been cancelled and they tried to ring me, I checked phone and it then that I saw the 10 mins. I will put in a complaint as the doctor/consultant wasn't there because they had to take their annual leave :wtf::wideyed::arghh: you couldn't make it up could you, bizarre and so annoying too, but a nice cup of tea is helping, with milk :joyful:

    2 hypos yesterday and 2 more today
    Went as low as 3.3 just now and didn't feel a thing this time, my fingers are beginning to hurt from all this pricking. Should I just stuff a load of biscuits inside me instead of glucotabs and cheddars?

    If you have some juice or jelly babies might be quicker than glucotabs and cheddars, I recommend coke and oreos :hilarious:

    Not yet today. Injected the same amount of insulin for the same 2 beers as yesterday :banghead:
    Fingerprick has me at 4.4, so still in the green but I still can't believe I did this even after posting about it. I guess I'll have to up the speed with the second beer:wacky:
    (and my Libre usually reads between 0.5 and 1.5 mmol lower than finger pricks, so still a very nice graph but not quite as nice as it looks :p I'll take it any day, though :) )

    Didn’t have the bread, just the salad. Don’t normally have big rises like that when I eat carbs and inject. Thought a rise to about 8 would have been about right. Definitely better for me to eat moderate carbs as I have better control. So about 100 a day.

    She is the same age as my daughter, 18 and another granddaughter too, so that's 3 of them, with just 6 weeks between them :) Birthday's September 2, October 16 and November 16, so my daughter is auntie to the other two :wideyed:o_O

    Your having a my kind of day, first off stop panicking, everything has a reason for it and as you well know you may also have your knickers on inside out which could be causing the hypos :)

    3.3 is not so bad and you should only need something small to nudge you up, but as @MeiChanski suggest bread and jam could be a good one, jam sweet acts quick the bread a slow carb release, and roughly 20-26 gram carb.

    You need to resist the urge to "rage munch" (unless your also doing weed which might throw a spanner in the works) because if your liver dumps glucose big time and you have eaten the contents of the fridge (been there got the t-shirt) then you'll have a hyper to deal with which may be more of a problem.

    Take care, I'm sure you'll sort it soon :)
