Read what things have affected me this week and my thoughts on any recent news articles.

Week 14

I went to the annual Manchester Diabetic Concern Conference at the weekend, which was very useful. The conference had key note speakers on education, dealing with stress and health.  I found the education one very useful, even though I have always known there were courses for both type 1 and type2 I have never read into them. The type 1 course called DAFNE revolves around carb counting, which is what I have been doing since I was diagnosed and was also the aim of the database to help people carb count. The only trouble is the course lasts 5 days and is a week long so you must be willing to take time off work, but if you can this looks like a great course for type 1’s. The type 2 course was called XPERT lasts for 6 weeks. So if you are struggling with managing your diabetes one of these courses (or similar) may help.


If you have not already taken a look at the link I have put on Sarah’s Story then pleas visit:

this is a gentleman who was diagnosed with a form of type 1 diabetes known as LADA (late auto-immune diabetes in adults), this has led to him having diabetic neuropathy.


Things with the pregnancy seem to be going well, I have just had to increase my night tim insulin from 22 to 24 as I was waking with levels of about 6.5.


Until next week x
