    T2D!!
    Just turned 60 and recently retired. Married and 4 grandchildren. Came as a shock to be diagnosed as T2 but deep down I knew......just didn't want to get it confirmed. Diagnosed in early March 2020 with readings of HbA1c 82mmol/mol. (Not had test since then so hoping it will be lower now). B/G 11.1. Weight was 132 and height is 6ft.

    Now I've faced it, I'm trying everything I can to control it. Bought myself a Tee2+ and use twice daily at various times. Average over 3 weeks is 5.9. Lowest is 4.9 and Highest is 7.8.

    Have cut 80% of all carbs, eating much healthier and now down to 110kgs.

    Diagnosed T2 - Mar 20.
    Mar 20 - Hba1c 82. 132 Kgs.
    Jul 20 - Hba1c 39. 113 Kgs.
