Hurrah! Some time has passed since we published the last poll. I’ve long given up describing it as the “monthly” poll as it’s almost never monthly. If you have complaints about the irregular timing of the polls then feel free to write me a very stiff letter. On cardboard.
Anyway, last time we asked what your food related nemesis is. Your culinary Moriarty, if you will. Every diabetic has one and it seems that buffets topped the list with 26% of the vote. I remember once going to a party that had a buffet – tables laden with food as far as the eye could see. The puddings were so good – in particular a fantastic apple pie – that I had to inject a total of eleven times over the course of about two hours. Painful, perhaps, but worth every mouthful.
The infamous Chinese takeaway reared its head next with 23% of the vote. Everyone seems to find the combination of fried rice, MSG and prawn crackers difficult to deal with. I think I’ve finally conquered my Chinese takeaway nightmares with the cunning application of the pump’s dual wave bolus – but the time I got it right was probably just a fluke. Isn’t it always?
Pizza came next with 21% – with thin crusts I’m okay, but thick crusts are a hellish nightmare of mad, swinging blood glucose. Sticky puddings (9%) and Indian takeaways (7%) brought up the rear. With the “comedy answer” (I eat nothing but salad) trailing in in fourth place with 14% of the vote. What’s wrong with you readers? I thought it was tradition that the silly answer always won.
Anyway, moving on to this month’s poll, we ask “Who do you think is the most useless member of your healthcare team?” Define ‘useless’ and ‘healthcare team’ however you like and vote over there (points downwards if you’re on the front page and over to the right if you’re on any other page…)
Those results in full:
Buffets – 26%
Chinese takeaway – 23%
Pizza – 21%
None – I eat nothing but salad – 14%
Sticky puddings – 9%
Indian takeaway – 7%
