    Gender:
    Female
    Location:
    Brackenfell, Western Cape, South Africa
    Occupation:
    Administrative Officer
    Type of diabetes:
    Prediabetes
    Treatment type:
    Tablets (oral)
    Medication:
    Metformin
    Exercise:
    im still in the process to work out a practical exercise programme for me, at the moment i walk at least thrice a week, 4-5 km a day.
    Likes:
    foods: salty foods, potatoes, caffeinne coffee, pastas and rice, spicy foods.
    I like the outdoor life, i prefer watching TV than exercising.
    About 2 weeks ago i consulted my doctor to assist me to loose weight since the programme i was using at the time (Herbal life) was not working anymore. He prescribed Duromine and also decided to test my blood for overactive thyroid and blood sugar level. It was then when he diagnosed me with prediabetes! The shock was too much, however i immediately started with my research and i know i can fight this, with people like you on my helping side, i will conquer this disease.
    im a mother of 5 sons, 2 grandchildren and im fairly healthy by the Grace of God. I try to live my life to the fullest between work and personal life.
    i sincerely appreciate the assistance and guidance you offering me, this is something new to me and all the help will be awesome.
    kind regards and thank you once again!
