    Hi all,

    I'be been diagnosed type1 diabetic for little over a month, starting to get to grips with everything. Loving the fact this time of year the shops are now selling a viraity of hypo treatments in the form of trick or treat sweets. At the tender age of 31 thinking of heading out with my nephew to stock up.

    Welcome @Jeff_uk :)

    There are nice sugary iced Halloween buns at the moment too ;)

    Do ask away if you need any help or advice about other aspects of diabetes. There are plenty of friendly people here to help :)

    Hi @Jeff_uk I think you don't need your nephew, at 31 you are old enough to buy your own sweets...

    Welcome to the club.
