    good morning all :)

    4.3 today

    Ooof - dealing with trees costs a lot of money! It is a fair old size though:(

    @Granny_grump_ the stress/anxiety thing and my own reactions lead me to believe that it's worth thinking about, since it's recognised that diabetics seem more prone to get depression, anxiety or becoming stressed but it may be that when they say that people who suffer from stress or depression are more prone to diabetes and poor bg control that it's perhaps related rather than causal, a vicious cycle or even that the perceived relationship is back to front?

    - bottom line, is it that metabolic syndrome/disregulation is the underlying factor of both things and perhaps of other hormone related problems (could it also be implicated in thyroid problems? we also have the PCOS link). General endocrine disruption seems very likely when you realise how many of these other problems crop up with insulin resistance. (That's a lot of disregulated endocrine systems - eating hormones, sex hormones, pituitary and thyroid hormones :(:( ) - thanks to your High Carb low fat dietary advice!

    Hi geefull I do agree with you so many unexplained and unfamiliar things happen with diabetes and I can add one more I started with allergies and hay fever and allergic asthma in my 60 s not allergic to any of the normal things now got epipen last week due to a full blown anaphylactic around 4/5 years ago to X-ray contrast dye ended up in Intensive care,since then allergic to codiene had this for years for my arthritis,prawns some nuts micropore tape and last week to the dressing towel used in my op,it was again the sticky backing bright red leg and hot to touch. Where the hell are all these things coming from I feel like a walking time bomb no idea what else these allergies will throw up,at least I now have the epipen to use in emergency? Take care ! K
