    5.2 this morning (back online since I am back to work having been off with this blasted cold!)

    Didn't think that was too bad - considering I had a sweet in my mouth all night to stop the cough! Oh colds are not fun! (I write as I can hear a cough at the other side of the office - and they wonder why we catch them!)

    I wonder why there are no cough drops for diabetics. When I was on vacation in Switzerland I came across bronchial pastilles called GEM and it is sugar free. I hate cough and always end up having bronchitis.

    When I see the words sugar free I read "laxative" ..... I always used sugar free gum as a treat but my body seems to have built up an intolerance to whatever it is in them to make them sweet. Consume with caution is my word of advise

    (now there's a potential business opportunity to someone savvy!) I was using the ones from Aldi (Werthers alternatives). They say they are sugar free but they ain't carb free which is why I wasn't surprised at a slight elevation of my morning BS! The Werthers sugar free ones don't seem to cut the mustard unfortunately with a cough. :yuck::yuck:

    Well done Don if that's the readings off your own meter you could probably take 0.5 off for accuracy

    It is off the meter, but the pix is from my mobile phone app Diabetes Journal where I enter the readings Jim.

    Near enough is close enough at the moment mate. :D
