. Also, got my copy of "the first year: Type 2 Diabetes" and started reading it.... i can see why people rave about it, brilliant so far.
Another book I found useful was Can I Eat That? by Jenefer Roberts, which is aimed specifically at T2s.

Well done with the post-prandial reading.

I found a very uplifting video which I wanted to share with you all but apparently, or so I percieve, uploading videos is not allowed - is this correct?
If it’s on youtube just copy the link & paste it on here; video will be posted automatically.

Then, it’ll have to be very small in size as I’ve tried uploading videos from my iPad before & it said the size was too big for 30 seconds a while ago. The forum has upgraded since then so, I’m not sure what the size limit is now?

Thank you @Lanny. I asked because a) I did not know of any forum rules and b) I have a brand new mobile which is so different from my old one and I did not know if I was pressing the wrong buttons.

mine is sometimes good, but some mornings although during the night it tends to stick to 7.0 or slightly higher, sometimes first thing in the morning, it is sometimes 12.0, the only way sometimes I can make it better is to get up and go for a walk before testing, I do not know why it goes high, as do not have anything to eat after my dinner, just a cup of tea at 9pm

Rebel has been fine thanks since his colic episode.... Huge relief!
MeMe is much less sore in her hoof but I can't decide if it is fully fixed or will recur in a few days or weeks. Hoof abscesses can be quite fickle and the horse will be hopping lame for a day or two and then can come sound but then deteriorate again. I have had problems with this with MeMe before and my lovely farrier couldn't find anything despite digging holes in her hoof but eventually it worked it's own way out itself. It is much more rewarding when you poultice them and take the dressing off and see an nice blob of green stinking pus and know you have got it sorted, but 3 days of hot poulticing has not drawn it and she seems to be much more comfortable, so I am just waiting to see if she goes lame again and will deal with it when/if she does.
Afraid I still haven't been up on Rascal. Weather conditions have turned slippery again the last couple of days with black ice and now an inch of slush on top, so I'm even discouraging them from coming out of the stable into the yard as the ground is really dangerous. To top it off, I got one side of Rasc clipped and then the clippers jammed and will not cut, so he looks "a right clip" if you will excuse the pun. He has the coat of a wooly mammoth so it is extremely obvious that he has only been part clipped. Not sure if I have the bottle to take him out in public looking like that but if we get some half decent weather I really do need to bite the bullet and get on board. Need to dig out my "sticky bum" jodhpurs!!.... and yes that is a technical term.... They impregnate the fabric on the bum and inner thighs with the same rubbery pimples as magic Gloves, to give you a better grip on the surface of the saddle!

Jane. It is likely something called Dawn Phenomenon which is where the liver pumps out glucose to give you energy to start the day. Some people find it kicks in during the early hours and others it is more a Foot on the Floor Syndrome so regardless of what time you wake up it kicks in when you get out of bed. I usually have to inject 1.5-2 units of insulin as soon as I wake up to counteract it or my levels would rise by 4-6mmols without eating anything.
It is believed to be a throw back to prehistoric days when we didn't have cupboards and fridges to store our breakfast and so needed energy to go out and hunt or forage for food. Not at all helpful for us diabetics who just want to eat breakfast and get on with our day....

When I joined this forum it was to get an understanding of all things diabetic. Never in my wildest dreams did I reckon on encountering the phrase "sticky bum jodpurs". In retrospect, I would have expected that sort of term to be posted by Ted @KARNAK but never you Barbara @rebrascora . :eek::D:p

LMAO

Whoever invented those was a genius! (also known as 'silicone grip' jodhs in polite circles, but I'm not sure that’s really any better than ‘sticky bum') I definitely need mine when our instructor utters the dreaded words 'I think we should do some no-stirrup work today'!
