    Can I just point out as a Type 1 myself, that many things cause us to hypo. We work very hard to maintain control, counting carbs and matching insulin. Then along comes a heatwave/stress/excitement/illness/unexpected exertion. For some they may go hyper and others hypo. It is hard work to get it right on a daily basis.

    I know... Sorry. It's just, according to his meter he was hypo all the time. I know it's hard, and some are brittle etc, making good control some mythical beast that'll never be seen...

    Do forgive me.

    I end my day on 4.4.....it’s been steady today, a little glitch @ 7.2 2 hours after breakfast but that’ll be a lesson learnt. Good night.

    14 weeks since my last post.

    Almost 18 weeks ago when I came on here.

    Weight then 120kg’s(18.89 stone)

    Weight this day, today is 85kg’s(13.38 stone)

    No matter how hard it is. Ignore the cravings and replace it with even a mere walk out of the door away from the fridge and cupboards. Drink H2O when you get up and before you go to sleep. Aim to drink 0.6floz/ lb of body weight throughout the day. It is easier than you think. Every cup or mug of coffee or tea is on average 400ml. How many of them do you have throughout the day or until you sleep?
    Carry that water bottle around with you like it is some form of a God, and you know that the cup of plenty should never be empty.
    Ditch your attitude and do what is right. I have done this unassisted from medication. In another 6 months I will have my precious blood removed from where it belongs for testing to which my so called doctor will sign me off from this critical illness.

    Please abstain from any comments about dropping weight too fast etc... I’m not interested. I’ve done it. All I have simply done is eat fruits, vegetables, bird seeds, fish, chicken, beef, lamb, pork......

    Peace, good luck

    Google tells me what news stories are safe for me to read.







    What about “drink to thirst”?
