      I suppose the sweetness content would be graded by how ‘high ‘ the glucose is in the urine! A wee sample may taste different when having a b/s ranging from 15-17 to that of 20+. I don’t fancy it myself. I’ll stick to wine!

      That old age home should be reported to Urethos – it’s a trifle unethical for caregivers to allow their elderly diabetic inmates to produce sweet pee in the first place…though drinking the end-product should enable you to sing like (a) thrush (always thought Candida Albicans sounds like a fitting name for a Spanish soprano :D)

      I wonder what it tastes like? Down at the Malt Whisky Society in Edinburgh the whiskies are listed in the menu by taste description rather than by brand or age. My current favourite is “Whisky Flavoured Condoms and Skunk Roadkill”. I suspect the above might be similar…

      I love you @ckoei, you make me laugh! xxx

      By the way, I can empathise with any woman who has thrush having suffered it myself (and I don’t mean orally). It was a toss up as to whether reduced blood sugars or insanity would occur first. I’m still not sure which won… ;)

      @teloz re: thrush (how did we get here?!) – Antibiotics ALWAYS bring it on for me (doc says it’s a diabetes thing) ….. only made the mistake of sharing it with my wife once. I still have the scars ………

      Mmm…pre-diagnosis I was a member of that club too – sugary wee is a great growth medium for all sorts of things. What fun!

      @stephen – antibiotics does it for me too – to the extent that every time I get a prescription for antibiotics, I also insist on one for thrush medication too. The current doc is quite happy to agree (they’re good at reading past notes, for once!)

      Thanks to the pre-diagnostic icky itch, my mum suspected me of masturbation – that “pleasure” I can now avoid if I remain under 10; haven’t used antibiotics often enough to see if it raises the Spanish soprano’s voice, though ;)

      @tim – So whisky tasting is associated with smell, too? I remember fish fingers of the seventies tasted like millipede : not that I ever attempted to eat them – hope the same goes for your condoms&skunk?

      Do you think if I asked nicely my doc would compile a list of EVERYTHING that diabetics are more prone to? I’m getting really sick the old “of course your going to get that loads, you’re diabetic!” from the GP (cystitis not thrush in my case). But nobody has ever actually sat me down and gone through the masses of minor but irritating complications- it’s all blindness, kidney failure and heart disease, and not a thought given to the rest! Maybe I’ll write to Diabetes UK to suggest a pamphlet!

      We could compile a list of everything we’re not likely to get……erm. Well yes moving on, did you know that once passed a certain time of having diabetes you get given a medal. I think it’s 70 0r 80 years a chap at our local diab group as been given one – perhaps its worth having not being good after all!

      OR how about fermenting your sweet, sweet, diabetic wee?
      A little gem (recipe?) from Robert Tattersall’s Diabetes – The Biography (felt it was high time I learned the history of my disease.

      In 1780…Francis Home (1719-1831), Professor of Materia Medica, treated two patients Arthur (aged 42) and Murray (24) and showed that diabetic urine could be fermented.
      He mixed half a pint of yeast with 24 pints of Arthur’s urine: ‘It soon began to ferment, and exit a strong vapour, like fermenting liquors. Next day it fermented strongly. On the third, the fermentation seemed over, it had lost all sweetness and tasted like small beer. Murray’s treated in the same way, fermented into a tolerable small beer’
      (Francis Home – Clinical Experiments, Histories and Dissections – Edinburgh, 1780)

      Going back a few posts on this thread, I was interested to discover last night, from a reputable magazine (Good Housekeeping, if anyone is really interested) that we diabs are also prone to memory loss. That was a new one on me – I’d not heard that one before. (Or maybe I had, and just forgot…)

      I had been told that but forgot… ha ha ha!

      Oh, you’ve already done that one. Sorry.
