    Gender:
    Male
    Location:
    Kent
    Occupation:
    Compliance Manager
    Type of diabetes:
    Type 2
    Treatment type:
    Diet only
    Medication:
    None!
    Exercise:
    Walking 10,000 steps a day, especially after meals.
    I was diagnosed in May 2016 with hba1c of 94. I immediately went on a completely calorie controlled diet to lose 2lb per week until I reached a healthy weight. Now, after losing 2st 12lb my hba1c is 48 with no meds at all. I refused medication. I walk, really walk (not stroll) for 20 minutes after a big meal and try to keep active every hour. This knocks BG levels down nicely and makes muscles more likely to gobble up that glucose. I keep a rigorous food diary, everything is captured so there's no 'maybes' involved. I use Nutracheck which is also trialling Carb counting as well as an online diary.
