a bit anyway. I was just trying to demonstrate the difference between healthy weight loss and the muscle wasting kind clearly seen in illness. I do think QL demonstrates the symptoms of T1.5 where oral meds/diet work for some years, but of course it will depend whether the clinic she is sent to see that or just assume she is T2.
The dietitian is to blame for my weight gain with her silly advice to base my meals around 60% carbs.
Interestingly, though I don't seem to be losing, I have stuck to under 60g carb since return from holiday (mostly 50g) and have noticed that despite being quite ill with sore throat, stuffed up ears, swollen glands and irritating cough my BGs have been incredibly well behaved. Except for yesterday when I forgot I was diabetic and did no insulin for the 25g shake and went up to 14.4! The insulin users might be interested in the fact that I have also noticed how little insulin I have been using. Usually I fill my pump with 240u insulin (before priming which usually takes a fair bit to get all the bubbles out) for 6 days and when I change it I have about 30u left. This week after 6 days I had over 100u left, so I just changed the cannula. Now after 9 days I still have 56u left. So averaging around 22u per day inc basal which is 12.2u.
I really OUGHT to be losing!
Lucy, love your ironing board "celebration"!!!
