Three weeks from diagnosis

Published by Resurgam in the blog Resurgam's blog. Views: 282

Well - now I know what I have to do - stick to the low carb.
I have now seen 6.2 mmol/l on the meter, and I hope to see no more results in double figures.
I am absolutely convinced that having a meter and seeing what happens when I 'accidentally' cook too many potatoes - who am I trying to kid - well it made me realise that I have broken something and now I have to compensate for that. Maybe not for ever - not totally, but just as I would have to rest a sprained ankle I need to stop the carbs from impacting on my metabolism.

If I don't then the damage will only get worse, low carbs are my Nordic walking poles, to keep me upright on uneven ground - I don't want to have the crutches of drugs, and I'll be damned if I end up in a wheel chair.
