hi, all. this is not a specific topic related to DAFNE but in December last year, I was diagnosed with GBS and spent 2 weeks in hospital then 2 weeks in rehab to help with my walking. it has affected in in a lot of ways but for my diabetes it has completely changed my insulin needs. before I was sick, my background insulin was 10 in the morning and 10 at night. oddly enough that has completely changed. In Hosp it was 9 in the morning only but is now 12 in the morning and 3 at night.. has any one else had GBS or knows of any diabetics who have had it? I would be interested to know how you were affected by it GBS is an auto immune response where the body destroys its own nerve endings (hence loads of pain and problems with walking/hands etc.)
