Amanda, why don't you ring the doctors on the link? Realistically, they are the one who are going to give you a proper answer, not a diving forum who you don't know Adam from Eve.

Why don't you ask on the BSAC forum?

And you are wrong, Diabetes is not an absolute no with BSAC.

I have just had a referee medical done by Dr David Adey in Woolston and would reccommend him.

My impressions were that he was very thorough and professional. I particularly appreciated the fact that he took the time to talk to me about residual risks and what I could do to reduce them further. :thumbs_up:

Oh, and he only charged £50, which is half what I paid 10 years ago for my last civvy diving medical! :teeth:
