5.8 this morning after another small hours wakeup to sort out my sinuses. No pain this time, just blocked, so only the Sinex required. Thankfully everything feels completely normal since I've been up.

Excellent article in the Daily Mail today about how more and more GPs are realising that the standard NHS approach to Type 2, especially dietary advice, is flawed. We all know that already, of course. One of the contributors is a GP from my surgery, would you believe. Here's the link if you can't get your hands on the newspaper itself:-


Expected to wake up to a foggy start today but only have grey skies and it was a bit cool walking down to Morrisons to get a newspaper. Still fridge temperature outside according to our garden thermometer.

@adrian1der - well done, mate..!!

@Gwynn is your wife's GP allowed to stop your wife's medication, I thought that this was usually prescribed and monitored by a consultant? I hope they don't let her reduce it as that is not good. You must post here whenever you wish with whatever you wish to say. We are all happy to listen, reply and help. We all do it so take heart and know that we are your virtual friends/on the phone and at your door :) :rolleyes::)

A 5.6 for me at 06:48 on a musty West Berks morning. Hopefully the mist will burn off and we'll have another sunny day. I managed to shift that 0.8lbs so over 5 stone weight loss. Time to update my signature :)
I hope you are very proud of yourself - you should be x

Morning

Enjoyed a change of tea last night, with my grandad not being here we changed from fish to some ham, radishes and a rather large helping of cheese coleslaw, was delicious! Was 7.1 when I tested for bed so had 5 digestives

This morning I've gotten a 6.0 so correct call to make, only 1 nightmare last night but wish they would stop!
xx
Hi luv, do you take any other medications that could be causing your nightmares?

@eggyg I feel for you all, your daughter must be desperate to get home but there's no way they will let them out until little one is feeding. My son didn't feed well for a number of days and he weighed 9lb 5oz at birth and they wouldn't let us out!!

My daughter noticed a big difference between the two who were 5 and 6 weeks prem and the one who was full term in how strong their sucking reflex was and it took ages for them to take the feed. She did feel frustrated but persevered and fed them for 5 months. Yes, they will need to make sure that everything is Ok before letting them home.

No and if that’s the only medication you take it must be something else. Do you have them more when you are stressed or is it very hit and miss. Have you mentioned it to your GP, it’s not very nice if you are having nightmares a lot x

Yup only that and insulin I'm on, I don't even take over the counter medication when I could sometimes do with it lol, I've always had nightmares growing up but can't say I'm especially stressed at the moment, no never bothered mentioning it as as I say had them all of my life so it's nothing out of the ordinary, just 2 nights ago was very distressing with them carrying on all night xx

No I don't anymore, when I was trying to gain weight I did and it never had that effect on me xx

Yes that didn’t sound very nice at all. Personally I would mention it, though admit I don’t know what causes them, other than some medications x
