    I want to fly a wing suit down a mountain side, only 30 jumps until I am ready. Does this show my attitude to risk, training, and goals?

    Signature

    mmol/l 17.5 down to 5.5
    HBA1C 1st test @ 4 weeks =76mmol/mol, @ 9 weeks = 48, @ 5.5 months = 34, @ 9 months = 36*, @ 12 months = 36, @ 15 months = 37, @18 months = 37, @ 22 months it's 39 but I broke my leg 7 weeks before the test, surely that's a good reason? Now to get it back down to 35 or 36,. Managed to get it down to 38. more work on the way
    BP to 134/81 down to 126/73 down to 110/70
    Cholesterol 7.3 down to 4.0, 3.4
    2000mg Metformin down to 1500 with a view to coming off medication entirely. That's the doctors advice..
    26/09/2017 down to 1000mg a day now.

    Life is too short not to add spices to food.

    Now convinced I should eat enough carbs to do the sports I want to do to fuel my body, no more than needed and never white!
    * expanding my diet was not damaging afterall
