Re: Baking tip for the forum cooks/chef's

B&B, my daughter is preggers and she has gestational diabetes. She is on Metformin and she has a meter. I have Metformin 800mg, one tablet twice a day. The practice nurse, before she retired, told me that I can within reason have anything diabetes-related that I want. Only type 1 diabetics qualify ...

Re: Corona Virus

Covid for me was a bit like severe flu but without the high temperature. That was after 2 injections plus a booster. Of course that was before I knew I was diabetic, which apparently tends to make these things worse.

Re: Out and About -- In the World at Large

Most of the time I have my backpack with me, it is big enough to hold clothes, equipment and toys (iPad + charger) for a couple of days as well as my collection of prescription drugs. That is as near as I get to a man bag. No need to take that on my little walks.

Re: Baking tip for the forum cooks/chef's

In the UK all diabetics get free prescriptions, insulin dependant & type 1 will get meters etc. on prescription, okay as I am not on insulin or scary drugs they won't prescribe me a meter, I can live with that. Since April I have had a CT scan, an ultrasound, an X-ray, many blood tests and urine tes...

Re: Baking tip for the forum cooks/chef's

B&B, I am a type 2 diabetic and all my prescribed medications, whether related to my diabetes or not, are free and have been for the past 20odd years. That includes glucose meters, test strips, metformin and insulin. Under 65's require a medical exemption certificate which all diabetics are entitle...

Re: Baking tip for the forum cooks/chef's

Very interesting, I hadn't heard of that. I am type 2 and so far I only need metformin, got my HBA1c down to 6.1 so hopefully I can keep on top of it, I seem to have conquered the problem I was having with diabetic blisters, my hands still blister but the blisters don't go huge like they were early ...

Re: Baking tip for the forum cooks/chef's

This year I was going to get serious about baking, bought a stand mixer, baking trays and cake tins, cooling racks, icing spatulas. I made one batch of rather flat scones, oh and a Christmas pud, then found out that I am diabetic so it was all a waste of money, can't eat anything nice so pointless ...

Re: Out and About -- In the World at Large

I guess I'm in the minority, but I'd love me a good "cargo skirt" that was a bit above the knee and fit nicely. Utility kilts aren't really the same, although I do have some that I wear. I really like my old cargo skirts, blue denim, made by Midas clothing and made for men, The first one I bought w...

Re: Zirts

If only they would stretch to a 42" waist, I have lost a fair bit of weight and 42" now feels right, looking at the size chart I am still way too big Humph! My waist is around 40 now. I am fitting into the XXL perfectly. The site says the XXL is 16-18 or a 38 waist. I would say you are just a littl...

Humph!

Re: Out and About -- In the World at Large

When I try to imagine a new version of a male skirt, I see a shapeless sack, dull in color, festooned with pockets. I think u nailed it there. I wear kilts and skirts, I like my stuff very simple and comfortable. Most of my kilts are light weight Hybrid utility kilt. Black with red, green or purple...

Wow! what an instrument! not easy to take on a flight I suppose, although I bet that wasn't an issue when the thing was invented!

I can’t believe it. Almost 24 hours from seeing skirted men in front of 1 billion tv audience, and my post generates nil response?

HELLO. ARE YOU READING?
Yes, I read your post, however, I didn't watch it and have nothing to contribute, so I didn't.
