I shall raise that point with management.

Following my potential vasculitis scare at the end of January, I have now seen the dermatologist, and have been told that it's not vasculitis after all, it's a form of eczema/neurodermatitis. It can be linked to asthma - which I've never suffered from - and hay fever, which I suffered from through childhood and well into adulthood. What triggered this bout is tricky to say, doc reckons there are multiple possibilities, generally being run down and stress both being well up on the list.

There was a secondary infection in the forearm which has now been treated with antibiotics and cortisone cream. Doc has prescribed a vitamin D supplement and doesn't want me back for six months. Dermatologist has prescribed a low-dose cortisone cream, and said to ramp up the Nivea usage when that runs out. She doesn't want to see me again, unless the arm turns manky, in which case I'm to go straight back.

Having 'cleaned up my act' over the last few weeks, the blood-work is looking a lot better, sleep is more consistent, daytime fatigue has gone and I've gained a few kilos in weight. Stick with stress-free and cleaner living and all I need is some sunshine.

And biscuits. Don't forget the biscuits.

All jesting aside the biscuits are not to be forgotten, the Golden Oreos - assuming I could find them here (I can, as it happens, I'm just in denial) - probably wouldn't fit with Doc's viewpoint. Maybe Nutek could fill in here on a part-time basis...

'Health cookies' would seem to be in order, and I'm taking my research pretty damn seriously. No photos yet as I've eaten all the current stock, but will rectify that tomorrow. It's a fine balance between oats, chocolate, fruit and sugar, and paying vague attention to the Nutriscore.

I can't think that any one particular thing got rid of the daytime fatigue, more like a combination of getting the diet straightened out, ramping up the vitamins (B group especially), and a bit more exercise have sorted out the night-time sleep issues, so the reduction in daytime fatigue seems to have been a welcome consequence.

Ah...the night time sleep issues (I assume lack of sleep) is probably the part I missed.
I sleep well enough but still tire in the day. Reduced kidney function (as a result of diabetes) seems my tiredness issue.

Lack of quality sleep was an issue for me for sure. Luckily no longer having to drag myself out of the pit to go do something at a set hour meant that I could smack the alarm snooze button (having extended the snooze time) as many times as I felt I needed. Still got tired late afternoons though.

GP's are pyramid salesmen and most of them are not very good at it, half a GP's time is taken up seeing reps pushing duff medicine which obviously gets pushed to us.

Consume less calories "No insult meant" loose a few inches off the waist, count calories it makes a big difference I lost 30 Kg and feel a lot better for it and skinny jeans are cheaper, diabetes can be reversible if you want to talk diet I'm happy to PM Mindset is everything I did it in a YEAR.


Walk........ Walk and Walk 2 or 4 km every day 1 km in 10min is no time loss to you stick some headphones on do it everyday for a week and you will feel so much better..........
