    Morning Mrs McD and what a pleasure it is to converse with such a refined lady. How is Mr McDowell getting on? The end of September marks the 3 month glide path to next Hba1c so I will keep a much more detailed eye on things. I usually use the period in between last test and 3 months before to trial new recipes and approaches.

    Now I understand. I’ve got my blood test today again. This time with the Diabetic Nurse though just had one when I joined the practice. Thanks for your enquiry re Mr McD. This week has seen a vast improvement and he is back to thinking he has a say in matters concerning everyday life. That’s the problem when he realises his lungs are working again. Thank God. He had me worried for a bit. Still waiting for an appointment with the Cardiologist though.

    Good Morning! 6.4 at 0655.
    I thought it would be higher as I had a (large) roast potato with roast beef dinner last night and was 8.9 at 2130.

    Today was started on 5.8, getting concerned about my leg, it's started leaking again and the lump keeps inflating full of err liquid but that won't stop this waddling machine just alters my route to a more flat and even walkway...unfortunately I live on a hill and they do have their downsides but circles are cool so today will be spent going around and around.

    @Grant1969 That leg sounds as though a trip to the Drs is quite urgent surely?

    Morning all, just done a random fbg this morning @ 05.42 of 5.6. (I'm told I've become a little obsessed with numbers lately!) Heading to the airport now for a couple of weeks in Cyprus. I won't be checking whilst on holiday!!!
    @ally1 great to see you back in the 7s!

    Yeah, I've been to the gp about my leg err, several times and a prescription for anti biotics was the treatment until the last visit where the gp noticed I was diabetic so sent me for an x-ray, still waiting and hurting but, err but nothing if I'm honest, I'm concerned about the future and my association with my left leg as we have become kinda close.

    @Grant1969 Hang tough big man and keep pestering the Drs
    Have a great time in Cyprus @GrumpyOldPhart We had the best holiday of our lives last November at the Elysium hotel in Pathos. I loved the idea of breakfast in shorts outside then sunbathing till dark followed by gym for an hr before evening meal - all in November!
