Thanks Elizabeth

Yes I did moan about chest problems earlier.  After a few tests it turned 
out to be Angina.  Though I keep asking my GP if they are wrong and it might 
be something else.  I feel to young for that.  However, this Pepsi max thing 
was more out of curiosity than anything.  Somebody came up with the idea 
that any daily drink with a lot of caffine can really screw your diabetes 
up.  Incidently, the person who suggested this is not diabetic themselves 
but is "Usually right about most things".
