I've read about taking melatonin to help with sleep so going to put in an order online hopefully it helps anyone else try ?

    6.6 er what? - oh yes I remember I had more than a few of my teenage son's chips late last night from a large take-away - just shows when I try to forget occasionally that I have diabetes and stray I am reminded but they were naughty but nice on a cold January night.
