Quote of the day at DCUK.

Some advice given to a confused member.

“I have learnt the best way to lose weight as a type 1 is firstly to get your basal/bolus injections absolutely spot on, so avoiding highs and lows, to eat a sensible diet and exercise. Also a low carb diet so you take less insulin and therefore less margin for error with going high or low. It probably sounds like good old fashioned advice but it's spot on, it also means that keeping good control means less complications and a longer healthier life - something I think everyone with type 1 would be very happy with.

Please don’t ever consider not taking your insulin, it is highly dangerous and the side effects are too unpleasant to think about”

Oh that all advice to diabetics was that good.
