Please could you send a copy of the questionnaire together with your ac.uk address and the name of your tutor to admin@ Diabetes-support.org.uk, removing the space.  Sorry to be so brief, but I am away for the weekend staying with friends.

I am very pleased both your tests were fine.  You didn't mentioned the bowel cancer screening one - that's the only one missing recently I think!  LOL

Hadn't you noticed Colette? - we've been discussing men's problems that have reference to their 'naughty' bits quite freely in certain places on the forum in recent years!

Fortunately I have only experiencd the sliding scale twice in my life. The problem seems to be they do not seem to base the starting point on your own regime but on something a witch (dose) doctor came up with many decades ago. When I had occasional control issues in childhood through to mid-twenties (using urine tests) although on a drip I was always on multiple injections of neutral insulin. Sad that the sliding scale persists!

Admin will need to approve the actual post and the survey, hence if you send the post you wish to make with the link to the survey attached to it, directly to Admin so they can view the questions, they will be able to deal with it more quickly for you.

So far you have done all the right things and from the info available to me as a moderator (a bit more than is available on public view) it will most likely appear on the open forum shortly.  If there should be some problem not currently apparent to me - then Admin will reply directly to you with the explanation.

Yes Nyt I can so believe that, although that is not what I read, and indeed I have read a lot.  It is, according to those in the know, a disease contracted from poor living conditions.  I believe I got this after the throat infection I had last September, when I began to have weird tastes, burning in my mouth and particularly at the tip of my tongue (people thought that was quite amusing) and finally what I thought was silent reflux.  My doctor really tried for some time to convince me it was GERD but in the absence of any heartburn or pain etc I knew it wasn't.  Thankfully she had a bright idea and after 10 months I hope it will be sorted.

Gramma Bear.  It is a brutal treatment due to the resistance of Antibiotics these days.  I hope just one course will cure things for me cos I don't relish have to have another course.  This is horrible.

Colette, whoever said that H. Pylori is not supposed to be prevalent in the developed world I think was seriously mistaken. As I recall, many if not most cases of ulcer and reflux in the "developing world" - a condition that is so often put down to "developed" problems like stress, too much coffee, too much greasy or spicy food, etc. - are actually down to H. Pylori and the reason why people's ulcers and reflux persist for so long is precisely that they are being told it's stress or whatever and NOT getting adequate diagnosis and treatment for likely bacterial overgrowth.

So, although I completely understand the emotional reaction of feeling "dirty" due to bacteria, it's actually a much more common infection to have than people realize. So you're no dirtier than any number of people you pass on the street every day! ;)

Colette3 - I am so sorry for the way you are feeling at present.  I hope your doctor called you back and gave you the news you wanted to hear.  Is there no other treatment that isn't quite as harsh as the present one?  How long are you supposed to carry on with the meds?
