      Daibell, you seem to have a handle on this horrible disease. Would you have the time to help me? I could give you all the relevant information, and maybe you could then point me towards a solution. If you can, should I post here, or by PM? Thank you.

      my blood test for diabetes is over what it should be (20 to 40) and is 46. I've been given 3 mths to try and get the reading down. My BP was also high 150/80 despite being on 2 different prescription drugs to control it. I am very active, normal weight although have a non existence waistline ( I am female)! Can anyone please advise me how to tackle this?

      Hi would be good if diabetic clinics told patients about this website and perhaps would save a lot of people problems

      Hi Daibell, i'm working at a production company and we are looking for people to participate in a video for a supermarket, promoting healthy eating to help improve diabetes. The video will be of someone with type 2 diabetes cooking a delicious healthy meal with our presenter (who has a background in nutrition) chatting whilst cooking in a home environment. You can contact me at emma@maltfilms.com or on 02070332812
