Hi, Me and my partner have discussed planning our first pregnancy maybe at the end of this year. All the information is very over whelming online and I’m waiting on my consultant appointment coming through to discuss everything. I take Novorapid daily and carb count. And my night insulin is degludec. I am grateful for any advice, rights, wrongs and any information which will be helpful for me in this process. I’m new to this forum so thankyou everyone in advance.

Hi, I have recently been diagnosed with yet another health condition for which I will have to take steroids for the foreseeable future.

I was taking 22ml NovoMix 30 in the morning and 12ml at tea. I was... Read more ..read more

Not sure if this is the right place, but have a acquaintance who is a vegan and has diabetes amongst other health problems. He is now quite seriously vitamin deficient in B12, calcium and amino acids. Does anyone know of any reading material or websites that I could point him to???? He is a good cook, lives on his own but has mental worries. Thought of suggesting the freshwell website. Thanks ..read more

Hi everyone, i'm new here, i was diagnosed type 2 just after lockdown. I'm confused on how to get my glucose down. I've had all sorts of symptoms from fluttering internally when laying down to lightheaded and giddy. My head feels like I have a swimming cap on at times. Whatever I eat or exercise my sugars rise and struggle to get down. Just like to hear how others have managed their symptoms in the hope I may find something helpful ..read more
