I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes on January 9. I found this site straightaway and though I haven’t posted have followed all the information and advice. My HB1ac was 70 and although the doctor recommended medication and statins I asked if I could have three months to try to improve things through diet and exercise - she agreed but said she was very doubtful that I would succeed. I went down the low carb route and ten weeks later I have lost 30lbs and my latest HB1ac result is 44. I have an appointment at the diabetic clinic on April 17 ... can anyone advise whether this is going to be good enough? I have been unable to get on any of the diet courses as they are all full so am purely going on the great advice I see on here. Thank you for any help.
