My 6yr old son is type 1, we use the aviva expert for school and home as i need to upload it to diasend for the quarterly hospital review. I might suggest using something like that as he has separate meter for ketones meaning seperate strips.

I'm about 2 inches shorter. Went from a healthy 83kgs to an even healthier 70kgs some 20 years ago, while in my late 20s, at the shock of learning that I'm type 2. I now exercise 4 times a week instead of two and watch everything I eat. Tried the 800 kcal diet to reverse it but no success. My expert doctor is sceptical that I can reverse it. Fortunately I'm only on tablets so can't hypo. I don't normally tell people I'm diabetic as everyone has a magic solution in their back pocket. My friends just think that I'm a health freak and that's fine by me. But yes majority type 2 is food induced - in my non-expert mind TV dinners in the 1990s were to blame. They're better regulated these days for sugar but I avoid it altogether.

A joke is a display of humour in which words are used within a specific and well-defined narrative structure to make people laugh.
Sorry but your "non PC" comment really doesn't meet these guidelines.Probably best to leave it to comediennes in future.Why? Because they're funny.
Tell me what your autoimmune disease is and I'll think up a really s**t joke to say.Why don't you tell a joke about the cancer your mum died of.Sure according to you it's how people cope with the injustices of life.Hell of a lot of type 2's don't eat processed food or live a sedentary lifestyle.My uncle was a merchant seaman and then a fisherman .He also ran marathons and donated the money to guide dogs for the blind.I think I could count on one hand the times I saw him eating unhealthy food.He developed type2 diabetes at 57 and lost his leg because of the diabetes.He died aged 59 of a massive stroke and yes the diabetes played a big part in it.You really should do a bit of research about type 2 diabetes before making stupid, infantile jokes about it.

Wind your neck in! The vast majority of diabetes is type 2 and is largely preventable, I.e the scourge of those who eat processed foods to excess and do little or no exercise. The rest of us, including you are paying for their mistakes. I have a different autoimmune disease, my dad died of one and my mum died very early of cancer. Have you never ever told a joke that's not politically correct? Finding humour in everything is how some people cope with the injustices of life. Maybe try it sometime

Not only that but the link provided says nothing about this being 'free'. It says only that "Men with the following medical conditions are entitled to NHS prescriptions for PDE-5 inhibitors". Not all prescriptions are 'free' ones.

Thanks - some yummy recipes for us without diabetes too!



Thanks enjoy them

Agree I am not diabetic my self but my P. grandfather(RIP) Mum(RIP) were, so I am potential diabetic and recently just escaping the borderline B.S level tests I have cut my sugar intake in teas and coffees to near negligible i.e. from putting in some 6 tsp along with something sweet like cakes, biscuits soon adds up, down to 2 or even 1 and still some biscuits and cakes can't give up....
having been recently tested for fatty liver, despite being on healthiest veg diet (bar the above confession) life style i.e. no fizzy drinks and alcohol or smoking.... so there are healthy choices which will come in handy. With more juicing and healthy lifestyle I have been told my liver has improved over the year. Remember Liver is the only self repairing organ so much after abuse if you come back to a healthy eating and lifestyle i.e. exercises you can reverse almost a Cirrhotic liver back to near 100% functionality.

The only thing I don't agree with is the artificial sweeteners which I will not use. Although there is no medical evidence for any thing artificial including some of the E num's I will keep away from.

Keep your Liver healthy is the motto the rest will be taken care of by it self

Type 2 diabetes results from a combination of genetic and environmental factors.

where do you get the strips from ?
I am sorry to hear that "buzzard"'s impaired glucose tolerance has not been followed up as per NICE guideline. You are quite right the guideline does suggest annual test as there is a reasonable chance you can develop diabetes. What I tend to advice my patient is if a certain investigation, appointment or result has not happened at the time it should have then you should contact the appropriate department or person, I tell people when I was a patient myself and I did not get an outpatient appointment when I thought I was going to I simply phoned up the consultant's secretary and found out the reason behind it. As you can imagine the NHS is a huge organisation with a lot of people working in it, things get missed, forgotten, letters lost, test results goes astray. In the ideal world none of this of course would happen but we are in the real world. My advise to all the people I see is you are the person in charge of your own health and I am here to advice you what to do. Whilst I can see you have got a meter and doing your own test, it would be better to be in regular NHS follow up than doing it yourself. That way other risk factors will also be monitored e.g. cholesterol etc.
MosesSupposes

I'm T1, have been for 32 years and, as you quite rightly say, have always … I'm T1, have been for 32 years and, as you quite rightly say, have always been able to obtain free meters from my local NHS hospital. I would imagine the same would apply for insulin dependent T2s. Just out of interest, would I be right in assuming that non-id T2 diabetics would find it more difficult to obtain free meters?

Well that depends in some ways where you live and who is managing your diabetes. When it comes to type 2 it is a bit more fluid. Some type 2 patients I see are incredibly well controlled just on tablets and quite honestly checking the blood sugar is not necessary and I can tell how well the control by the HbA1c which I am sure you are familiar with. Some type 2 becoming progressively more difficult to manage their condition and monitoring might be helpful. And you are right if someone starts using insulin then they must monitor.
I'm at risk of developing diabetes because of a medical condition and although NICE guidelines suggest a blood test every year my gp doesn't do it. So every now and then I buy a meter and do a glucose tolerance test. Although I haven't bought this brand I usually get a test solution to calibrate the machine. Buying a new meter each time is usually cheaper than buying test strips and is certainly easier. It's a good price.

Could be cost though, as I believe the purple keatone strips are very expensive for packs of 10 so maybe their blue gluscose strips are expensive too. Dont know.


I read your thoughts on these devices with interest and felt the need to add my bit. I was only recently diagnosed type 1 after a horrible ketoacidosis episode. Prior to this I was told I was type two. I fought tooth and nail for a glucose tester when type 2 and they gave me the accu test system it worked well. But when I came out of hospital they gave me a freestyle optium it looked great was easy to use. They told me to throw the old one away as it was rubbish. Then three months later my diabetes clinic meeting came up and they handed me another new machine the accu test expert. The nurse cut short a comment about there being a problem with it. Alongside this I had questioned my recent blood tests as it made no sense if I were to believe the results I was getting on the freestyle. Anyway the new accu test expert is much better. And when tested alongside the freestyle it gave me a reading quite different! I had tried my original machine as well and it matched my new one. Turns out the freestyle was giving me dodgy readings. This had a knock on effect in that based on the freestyle readings my doctor told me to stop driving and notify the dvla. I did so and they told me to surrender my licence. Oh I should mention my job is as a driver for a large supermarket. My insurance company cancelled my policy and I can no longer drive anything over 3.5ton. The long and short being if I had an accurate meter i wouldn't be jobless and fighting for my licence that I didn't need to surrender.. test your machines regularly and let this be a reminder of what could happen. I'm not saying that there's a problem with the freestyle optium neo but it's worth bearing in mind that the manufacturers of this device recalled two lots of other machines last year that were giving false low readings...
