    Sorry for the delay replying, Maisie was 9yrs when we lost her, she had to have emergency hysterectomy, we knew this was a problem not having her spayed but she had various medical reasons why she couldn't be done unless in an emergency and this happened and unfortunately she survived the op but the other problems were too strong. Aggie is 10yrs now, they were litter sisters and we had had them from 10wks old. Aggie hasn't been spayed either but she has a heart problem and so we are taking the risk with her as well, we know what could happen but if she has the op now she could die on the table so we are constantly worrying about her.
    I am sorry you are having problems with yours but like you say, we do everything for them don't we, and then they just look at you with those eyes and you just melt.

    5.2 this morning very happy with that after last nights shenanigans felt a bit weird after dinner when I tested got a reading of 2.5 incredible felt quite ill. Took a load of glucose tabs and had a bit of chocolate and after a two hour sleep was back up in the 6's but with a pounding head ache and feeling nauseous have no idea of what caused it.

    Doc wanted me on insulin before Christmas, I postponed till after Christmas and haven’t gone back yet so can’t get linagliptin on repeat prescription. Admit I was also a little curious as to how my levels would react. Not much difference! Been over a month now. Live in the midlands, it was partly down to the doc but mostly a little personal experimentation! Just trying to get new appointment now to discuss options.

    Ask him about Jardiance. It stops glucose being reabsorbed in the kidneys and is then excreted in the urine. Net effect is to lower blood glucose. It is effective too.

    Went to see consultant not my usual one got my hba1c results 5.8 absolutely over the moon with that I explained that I’d not had insulin for 24hrs approx and he seemed a bit confused explained to him about weight loss and training daily and lowish carb diet
    He’s sent me for GAD test which I brought up after reading a thread a member posted up on my other post turns out I’ve not had one he basically said just keep testing don’t take any long lasting insulin unless i start getting high readings in the morning and no fast acting unless I’m going high obviously after meals which I’m well aware of what to do anyway and just got to give it time now see what happens all a bit of a shock if it turns out I’m not type 1 after all
    Thanks
