    Ask at your chemist .....I had tonsilitis and a hacking cough so asked at chemist what I could take whilst on the diet. I was told diabetic couch mixture and sugar free strepsils......anything for a diabetic you should be fine with, but its worth double checking.

    Hope you feel better soon.

    don't know if this will work for you, but when i was doing LL i froze some of the water flavoring into ice pops, worked a treat when i had a sore throat.

    Asked chemist about this last wk says you can gargle with tcp or take nurofen. I found drinking from one of those sucky bottles gave it to me but was fine after a few nurofen

    If you have a sore throat you could always make one of your shakes into a smoothie with loads of ice so it is more like ice cream. The cold should help your throat and if you add a couple of sweetner tablets to it you could almost convince yourself you were eating ice cream. Just make sure you are bundled up nice and warm before you eat it or you will be freezing :D
