You'd probably have better luck on the HU Diabetes Reseach site Paul healthunlocked.com/drwfdiab... Some here do have diabetes but the dedicated site would give you more info & advice I would think.

You've not posted on the HU Diabetes Research & Wellness Foundation site that I can see.

The Diabetes UK forum is also very good. forum.diabetes.org.uk/boards/ My h who also has Type 2 Diabetes has been helped on occasion. It's a busy site so could be worth you joining.

Sorry, I don't follow. Do you mean you don't understand what they're discussing? If so I'm not sure it would be any different elsewhere. I think as long as you explain yourself clearly you'll receive clear replies.

i couldnt grasp one post who was talking about saying things never heard

Just ask as you have here. It doesn't matter whether you understand another post does it? They'll be patient with you if you explain clearly & concisely, not everyone is au fait with terminology & it'll be a good way to learn how to manage your condition.

oh back to that appointment consultant was a bit dissapointed that doctor did not take/send blood for proper test of inflammatory markers and said that last two times in hospital inflammatory more raised than would be expected for condition so still no proper diagnoses but have to go docs the next time flare comes bloods are done does that sound rite and contact emergency clinic

I meant your diabetes actually Paul but no matter. It sounds an unorthodox way to be honest but if that's what you were told then all you can do is do that. Alternatively you could contact your GP to clarify, if by doctor you mean your GP?

This advice seems pretty clear

diabetes.org.uk/diabetes-th...

Elsewhere they recommend the meal replacement shakes for weight loss, and since you have a dodgy stomach this might work for you.

Do you have a diabetic dietitian? If not, perhaps you could be referred to see one. I have gastroparesis also, although mine is not due to diabetes. Many people with gastroparesis tolerate liquids better as gravity pushes them through to the small intestine which means the stomach muscles and nerves do not have to work as hard.
