    Birthday:
    Feb 22, 1956 (Age: 63)
    Location:
    West Midlands
    Type of diabetes:
    Prediabetes
    Treatment type:
    Diet only
    Medication:
    Statins since diagnosis. I am right on the cusp according to one GP, T2 diabetic according to another.
    Exercise:
    I have become very sedentary since developing osteoarthritis in my hip
    Update September 2019 - HBa1c 43, still in prediabetic range, but have also lost 3 kilos since starting keto.

    May 2019 - Diagnosed with T2 diabetes, subsequently told I am right on the cusp between prediabetes and T2. Either way, I need to get my blood sugar down from most recent reading of Hba1c 48. Just about to get to grips with testing.

    Signature

    Diagnosed May 2019 with prediabetes, Hb1ac 48, weight 127 kg
    Re-tested September 2019 after 3 months (and a bit) following the keto diet, Hb1ac 43, weight 124 kg. Still pre-diabetic, but in sight of non-diabetic range.
