    Always good to have some more real life experiences buddy. Will help to build a long term picture. I sent a selection of juices to catalent last week for sugar profile testing. I haven't had the final results back yet but I've had the verbal confirmation of" Hell yes" we've found sugar in these. Hoping to get them to do a little testing against current data on transmucosul sugar transfer (a fancy name for can sugar pass via the lungs to the bloodstream and how effectively).
    By no means is this to point a finger, just an out of intrest test. Also at this meagre level it will hold no water but may be interesting.
    Thanks crusty.

    It is an important area to consider my main concern with sugar and lungs is as diabetics we know that one of the main things sugar damages are blood vessels and nerves. The lungs have plenty of blood vessels as they get oxygen into the bloodstream. Sugar could damage these over time and nerve damage at the point of entry could also happen to even none diabetics over time especially if it is a high amount of sugar, that said smoking is obviously as bad if not far worse. But the sugars in eliquids could be a cause for the 5% dangers of vaping that are so far unproven. Time will tell and hopefully there will be studys done on it. Lets just hope there is no real danger, fingers crossed

    Hi mate. tell me to fuck off if you like but I'd be interested to know how you get on with the insulin pump. Been wanting one for years but for some reason never gone for one. My last appointment I discussed getting one and was told I could but I'd have to do a DAFNE course first, still waiting to hear back about that.

    Be nice to hear from some one who uses one instead of what the diabetes team tell me at the hospital.

    Sorry to go off topic
