    Hi Alisonjane;)
    The diabetic team at the hospital think I am insulin resistant to some level, been hyper for some time now and have been 20+ for the last 3 weeks

    In July I was hospitalised my meter had just said 'HI' for a few days (I work at a hospital and for a few days I had felt dizzy when standing up from a sitting position home & work) I was at work tested 'HI' I went to A&E they tested my BM of 59,1 I was admitted straight away was in for 5 days, they got me around 11 or 12 and discharged me

    Not been under 10 since

    This morning I was 19.8 fasting

    Well we have got another gale up here windy as heck and the rain has been on going for the last 6 hours, not what we need right now, floods have caused chaos countywide and Carlisle is one huge mess

    Hope everyone is ok on here:D

    Hi folks. FBG way too low at 3.3 this morning. Plan to increase carbs as my weight loss has improved my insulin resistance. That should rectify things. Too low is pretty unpleasant.

    I would be shaking and feeling surges of heat that low, hope you took some Glucose and sorted it, scary

    Hypos are awful, hope all is ok with you now?
