I had my annual diabetic bloods taken on Monday, exactly 5 years after my type 2 diagnosis. Just saw my results on line, everything is in normal ranges and my HbA1c, despite the death of my mother 9 weeks ago, an attack of shingles at Easter and a broken toe last weekend, is…….. drum roll……..37! To say I’m chuffed is an understatement. I love the food I eat and don’t struggle at all these days. Five years ago I never would have thought I could be this content, on what many view as a very restrictive diet. I also noticed when I logged on to find my results that my record has been marked “statin intolerant”!
