Hi Ruth, What's ALAs? I take biotin capsules. Biotin is vitamin H. (I'd previously written a vitamin B but realized I was wrong.) So, those are the 2 ingredients?

Maybe this is getting away from the 'thread' here but .... Fergusc, why would your doctors think you shouldn't be participating in the race? Too strenuous?

Good question Lanie!
I don't really understand it either. My problem is that I have hypoglycemia unawareness (maybe this IS another thread?). I've had Type 1 for so long that I have no symptoms when my blood sugars are dropping too low. This can be amusing for others when you walk around the house naked convinced you're the Prime Minister, but less so when you drive your car into a lampost at 40mph. I've done both.
I think the doctors would prefer that I do nothing that carries the risk of hypoglycemia - including running and cycling races. I prefer to believe that these problems mean that I should just try harder, not give up and admit defeat. We may just have to agree to disagree!
All the best,
