Duchess replied to sultansfam's discussion 'Opinion about Pumps'
"Just wondered why specifically 4-5 years? Can't you go back to injections if not happy with a pump?"

Duchess replied to sultansfam's discussion 'Opinion about Pumps'
"I'm also being pressured to change to a pump, so will be interested to see replies."

Duchess replied to Trev's discussion 'Is it Sugar Level Related?'
""So you're diabetic - which sort have you got, too little sugar, or too much sugar?""
Mar 22, 2011
Duchess replied to Trev's discussion 'How often do you explain to people the difference between Type 1 & Type 2?'
"Rye, I completely agree with you!"
Mar 17, 2011
Duchess replied to Trev's discussion 'How often do you explain to people the difference between Type 1 & Type 2?'
"Because not every obese/overweight person WILL develop diabetes. However it is a FACT that obesity is a common cause of T2. Go to any reputable medical website, & it will tell you that a very overweight person is at risk of developing Type 2…"

Duchess replied to Trev's discussion 'How often do you explain to people the difference between Type 1 & Type 2?'
"Totally agree with Alan. One of the most annoying comments is "he/she claims to be diabetic but I saw them eating chocolate" It is actually known that obesity CAN cause T2, & that is why it is increasing. That's not to say there…"

Duchess replied to Trev's discussion 'How often do you explain to people the difference between Type 1 & Type 2?'
"I find it absolutely infuriating. I frequently have to explain the difference to people, but they rarely grasp it. The trouble is, because T2 is on the increase due to obesity, everybody knows somebody with T2, so they think it makes them an expert…"

Duchess replied to Liz's discussion 'Shower/bath raising BGs?'
"I do sometimes find my blood sugar drops if I have a hot bath."

Duchess replied to Sportster's discussion 'Fingernails'
"I've had vertical grooves as long as I can remember so they aren't due to age."
Mar 3, 2011
Duchess replied to Sportster's discussion 'Fingernails'
"Yes I do have a few, I think I've always had them. So does that mean I was predisposed to diabetes rather than the condition causes them? Interesting."

Duchess commented on Charles Burgess's blog post 'frustration'
"Glad it's been sorted. It's appropriate that you should have the use of the First Aid room, & someone should have offeres this to you, without the need for any unpleasantness. All the best."
Feb 24, 2011
Duchess commented on Charles Burgess's blog post 'frustration'
"Just one point, in all honesty I don't, & wouldn't, leave the needle in a public bin, wrapped or otherwise. I always take it away with me. I sometimes use those little re-closeable bags, that spare buttons or beads come in with new…"
