OK. Here goes. The names Mike and I'm 66 yrs old. Live in the UK and have done all my life. I'm not going to answer that load of silly questions about me and my life. I'm newly diagnosed as Type 2 in August 2017 following the usual annual MOT at my local doctors. I had a phone call asking me to make an appointment with the nurse. All a bit worrying to start with. I've since been to see the DSN and she informs me that with my readings of HbA1C 48 that I'm type 2 Diabetic. All a bit scary ! She tells me I have to change my life style and stop eating and drinking all the stuff on her list. Turns out that I don't eat or drink anything on her list. She then proceeds to tell me to cut down on my alcohol consumption - I haven't had a drink for the last 35 yrs ! I've got to stop smoking - I don't smoke and haven't since 2006. I'm really getting confused now.
