Hi Hobie

Could you please restate the question. I don’t know what you mean? I think Osidge means that as well. What do you mean by pain? Presume gob is mouth?

Thanks

Miles

Well that’s a lot more understandable than your thread title, which was incomprehensible 😀

Hi,

As a type1 diabetic (completely dependent on injected insulin) and following DAFNE principles one is ALWAYS having to count carbohydrate portions to match UNITS of injected insulin🤔.

Yes, the pain and continual anxiety and stress of getting it right BEFORE anything goes into my GOB!😢🤣🤔.

Yes, the pain of self-management and self-medication on a daily, hourly basis!!!

Recipes will be most helpful particularly those that list carbohydrate portions👍👏.

I think a more positive note would be to understand what you are eating and how it will affect your diabetes and overall health. We produce a FREE leaflet called A Healthy Diet and Diabetes which is a great starting point. drwf.org.uk/sites/default/f...

Sharing ideas and recipes on HealthUnlocked is a good way to get started and looking at food swaps to make small changes. See Azmina"s Rainbow Rice recipe which she has cooked at our Diabetes Wellness Days. vegpower.org.uk/recipes/azm...

Do you have any food swap ideas to help your diet?

Try carb counting for more than 53 years I have never been unemployed in my life & worked all over the UK. I am not criticizing you lot it s the ones who are promoting what they had for dinner or tea ? (non diabetics or T2)

Hi Hobieone,

The very best wishes to you.

It takes huge effort to keep BG under control.

Hope your Hba1c is good?

Type1 diabetes can be lonely.

Keep well.

All the best.

Regards

Recipes will be of help to the forum due to varied interest. Our main job is to be available for help to each other. It is interesting to see what types of food people are eating- sometimes it sparks the idea (for some) of trying something new as long as it is healthy. If it helps your system and we have differing metabolisms, then that can not be a bad thing. There are some good ideas here.

Thank you for saying that. It’s a place to share ideas for meals/snacks and in general. If a person has a recipe that they want to share, please do!😀👍
