    Thanks @MeiChanski I know that Glucotabs don't do the rise as quickly as fruit pastilles and don't raise it as much.
    I gluco =.5mmol rise
    1 fruit pastille1.5mmol
    As I said to @helensaramay I wasn't just treating the hypo but being a piglet too

    You could try small cartons of orange juice (no bits) or 200-250ml of coke, if tabs are a bit slow. I know hypos sometimes makes me look like I haven’t eaten anything for about a week and stuff my face without regrets. I do like fruit pastilles, not the lemon and lime ones.

    @Mel dCP had to Google "cwtch" and it said it was a hut so if your sending me one, I hope I'm in to sign for it when it arrives. I should stick with the tabs and the pastilles rather than giving myself a treat. It is after all a demon condition

    It’s hard not to be a piglet when your brain is in panic mode. That’s one big difference (trying hard not to sound too evangelical) I’ve found with my keto diet - while I still get the physical symptoms of low blood sugar, my brain can think clearly through it and not panic, because it’s not low on fuel as it’s running on ketones instead of glucose. Makes it much easier to treat calmly and clinically.

    I know my sane self says do the tabs or the pastilles but my devil on the other shoulder says M&S. I know they're not appropriate but I'm sure there are guys here who eat Oreos

    Hey guys. Saw my gp yesterday as a general follow up from my discharge few days ago. He was concerned about how I’m type 1 diagnosed at 41 when he said should been much younger. So he’s sending me for X-ray on my Pancras to see how well it’s functioning. He reckons my pneumonia I had might caused my Pancras to slow down. So not sure if I’m needing insulin or not. Will let u know once X-ray date is set.

    Tell your GP that half or so of newly diagnosed T1's are adults.

    Forget about Google. It translated "Good ole Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch " as "Good Ole Ole".

    Oh please! I was 54 the GP needs to do some research. Not to say your pneumonia might not have caused problems. But GPs saying this worry me. Mine thought the same and I ended up in hospital because of his assumptions about age related diagnosis.
