    In what way? Because there are very well controlled type 1s with hba1c of 3.9 and there are some who have good hba1c but the control is very yoyo like.

    Yes @MeiChanski, you are right. There are lots of other factors which affect morbidity rates in T1D, such as age at diagnosis, co-existing illnesses, time in range, age, weight, overall fitness and episodes of severe hypo and hyperglycaemia
    But I don’t care. I just want to cling onto the 6.5 bit of rare good news. Cheers.

    Nope, there was a form included if I wished to contest it. (Usuals, "not me driving." "Not my car.")
    All I needed to do was pay the fine...

    Morning chaps, FIRST ON PARADE! Off to Hereford today to teach French. I don’t speak French. The school are well aware of this, but specifically requested me because of my “good classroom management” - ie I can deal with misbehaving kids quite well. All good fun, eh? On call later, so let’s see what the day brings. Woke up on a nice 5.5 despite a couple of high alarms during the night. Might have miscalculated the carbs in my fake chicken last night, need to look at that again. My ingredients came out at 4g; the recipe said 8. I’ve got some marinading in the fridge in a tandoori gloop, so will try dosing for 8g tonight and see what happens. Have a good one :)

    Do you have a link to the article? I’d be interested to read it :)

    I had my sat nav with the limits set in MPH as a quick reference when abroad.. Sometimes there is a bit of "lag."
    Hey! Lol, as far as I'm concerned it's just a souvenir of a pretty good holiday adventure.. :)

    Bon Chance! The HBAIC thingy might be from the ACCORD trial which was a mix of T2Ds and TIDs but mostly the former looking at HBAIC vs CVD, and high and low HBAICSs were associated with increased risk but other trials have not reported the same, only that higher the HBAIC the higher the risks. It could be that it depends on how you divide up the levels of HBAIC whuch sounds like a possible case of shonky statistics with ACCORD.

    Do you keep up the salt and use magnesium supps whilst on low carb or are not in nutritional ketosis?

    Endo visit this morning. HBAIC is 36 mmol/l (= 5.6 %, ) from 39 in late February.
    Off to the cardiologist next week for 5 yearly preventative heart check and repeat calcium score, last one 'normal for non-diabetic at same age'.
    I do not believe that the ACCORD trial is the final say on HBAIC levels and CVD risk but let me see what the calcium score says!
    The only 'bet' i have is a random draw in a raffle on Melbourne cCup Day here in Oz.

    Morning all!

    I have bought a really good herbal because the surgery seem ever more reluctant to prescribe. As an example once upon a time if I told them I had cystitis they believed me, gave me the antibiotic prescription and I gave them my pee sample so they could confirm it. (I'm 63, I've had it before - is there something so weird about believing me)? The doctor used to believe me but now I get fobbed off with some nurse, who has confirmed leucocytes in the pee (very unusual for me) so she's sent it off for culturing. Meanwhile, no prescription. They reckon next week .....

    While she's waiting, my abnormally low white blood count and lack of spleen mean I ain't doing too well at fighting this infection. I feel all feathery round the edges and the loo echoes to the sound of very rude words when I go for (yet another) pee.

    So - back to my family's old ways - a herbal, a pestle and mortar, dinky little saucepan and let's see how she goes.

    Don't send sterling - the exchange rate will have changed by the time it gets there and you'll still owe them :rolleyes:
