    Hi
    Have just joined.
    Diagnosed T2 late September with HbA1c of 101.

    Meds prescribed 2x 1000mg metformin and 1x 80mg Gliclazide.

    Just had results of first review test. A little early at less than 2 months but HbA1c is now 52. Pretty chuffed at that as you can imagine.
    I have also reduced Gliclazide dose for the last 2weeks
    I have been eating pretty low carb since Diagnosis. Estimate 60-80g per day

    Hello and a warm welcome!

    Wow! a 50% drop in less than 2 months is incredible. Very well done :) Fantastic that you took the bull by the horns and were proactive about this disease. Great to see.
