Thanks to you both for the tips. I didn't understand the difference with the insulin and glucogan, but after your message I did a little more research. This has helped to put things in perspective also in that right now he needs support in another way. I suppose in the quest to understand and help someone you can become too much of a mother and not enough of a girlfriend. Perhaps right now he needs the distraction away from his troubles, not an addition to them.
Thanks again. Babs

The one thing I'd like to say as a type 1 is that most annoying thing ever was when a friend ate a big bag of chocolate in front of me but made a big point in saying he wouldn't offer me any as he didn't want to be the reason that I died!! Aargh!! So please, do offer out of politeness alone and let the diabetic make their own choices! We are human after all, and get frustrated if we are treated differently. And a type 1 can have any food in moderation. We just need to make sure we have the insulin to cover it.
