Re: [IPk] NICE Guidelines



Thanks Abigail

I know I have to keep positive.  It is frustrating when you think you have 
is sussed ie eat something with stable BGs, use a a ratio and get good 
results.  Next day do the same thing and BGs sky high!  No extra activity so 
what's happening - pump with bubbles? Sometimes yes sometimes no.
