    Interestingly, I read an article this morning about the new sugar taxes coming into play and how drink companies were taking early action and drastically cutting the amount of sugar in their drinks. I've no idea why this isn't something they'd advertise heavily (making their drinks healthier) but it was noted that people who rely on grabbing a quick bottle of Lucozade might not then get as much sugar as they would expect.

    One to watch out for if people have tried and tested foods/drinks they rely on.
    Think Lucozade have already started reducing sugar in their drinks Dan? I could be wrong though.

    Yeah, but I don't think everyone knows about it and it's not very well highlighted it seems.

    Pretty poor really, if having a hypo and drinking Lucozade, which is lesser in sugar (if you weren't aware). It really should be highlighted on the packaging

    I use gloucose tablets when I hypo. Three of them and a wee sandwich and all is good. Never liked sugary drinks. I did managed to get down to 2.2 today after my lunchtime walk had to eat digestive biscuit as I run out of tabs 🙈Sorta ruins the diet when you need to eat sugar 😡


    Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

    I've read that a few jelly babies are a good source of sugar for hypos.

    Aye, from me earlier on this thread? 😂

    My wife is type 1 and that's what the doctors recommended to her when she was pregnant, 4 should be enough. Word of warning though, she fell into a diabetic coma shortly after having jelly babies trying to fix a hypo, when the paramedics arrived they were annoyed she tried to fix it with jelly babies, if it's a bad hypo you're having then they aren't suitable as don't work quick enough apparently.

    I'm trying to help her (and shed some of my massive gut) by going on a High fat low carbs diet and I bloody hate it, breakfast and dinners are great but I'd murder someone for a packet of crisps or a chocolate bar right now and I'm only 2 days in.

    Fair play to anyone who can stick to this sort of diet.

    Really dark 90%+ cocoa chocolate, like Lindt or Green and Blacks,in moderation, is worth trying.

    I buy the small packs of Bellarom dark chocolate from Lidl's. They're 40 gram bars and are 43.3g of carbs per 100g, so 17.3g per bar.

    I've been doing low carb since the turn of the year and if you plan your meals well it needn't be that difficult.
    I recently found low carb pancakes (egg/cream cheese/cinnamon/stevia) which I have with bacon at the weekend, makes me feel a little more normal and a little less diet fanatic!

    I've been doing low carb for a while as well and agree that its been the easiest diet to do.
    Don't bother with trendy cloud bread, though. Its rubbish!!

    I felt a bit light headed for the first week or so but that went and I got used to it. If I'm losing weight I go quite low calorie but I can feel a bit under-nourished after 6 weeks so have to give it a break.

    I'm 60 and was diagnosed Type 2 in April last year. I had been near to falling asleep at work, couldn't work out what was wrong. I can relate to the party life a bit although gave up the Don Revie a few years ago to the benefit of my health.

    I did the eye checks, cholesterol checks, feet checks and was referred to Diabetes classes. Nurse insisted I start on tablets. I asked how long for and she said syne die. Bugger that thought I so I sought a second opinion from the GP. He gave me 2 months grace to try diet, exercise.

    I lost 2 stone and every day now walk 10,000 steps, drink 2 litres of fluid, eat 5-6 bits of fruit and apart from one luxury day per week, eat no processed food whatsoever. My gut and appetite have shrunk to the point where I can no longer manage a 3 course meal but that's more than compensated by taste buds that really savour all food now.

    Big lifestyle change but never started the tablets and my readings moved to green by the time of my second 2 month check. Give it a try bud, may extend your life by ten years. Word of warning though. Mrs Cammy will have to put up with you chasing her around the boudoir a bit more

    very helpful site coincidentally got e-mail from them yesterday regarding the sugar difference in Lucozade


    for all that's mentioned lucozade etc for hypos

    Lucozade News
    Individuals who rely on Lucozade to treat hypos (hypoglycaemia) are being advised to check the labels of the energy drink as the amount of sugar per 100ml has significantly reduced. This change was implemented in April 2017 and will apply to all Lucozade flavours as well as the original drink. Previously, 100ml of Lucozade Original contained 17g of carbohydrate and this will be reduced to 8.9g. People who experience hypos are advised to drink 15-20g of rapid acting carbohydrate to treat their low blood sugar.

    Suggested replacements for hypo treatment are as follows:
    1. 200ml of concentrate orange juice
    2. 4-5 Large Jelly Babies
    3. 4-6 Glucose tablets
    4. X2 tubes of glucogel
    5. 150 – 200mls non diet fizzy juices (however these might also be subject to change in the future)

    don't know others thoughts on the glucose tablets but myself and daughter(both type 1) never use the glucose tablets for treating quite a severe hypo, they take ages to work but i do always have a packet on me just for taking 1-2 at the first feelings of possibly going hypo

    Great for exams, though!
