    Hi. Well done on controlling through diet alone. Like a lot of other Type 2s, I do this too. Is your diet low carb? the drop from 78-31 looks good but I'm not clear on the numbers..is that HbA1c test results? If so, 31 is definitely a non-diabetic level...and if you are getting hypos still, I would think about easing up on your diet. I am also confused if your weight is increasing with such a large drop and with a diet...but I guess we all differ. As for your 4kg difference..that's not a lot and scales can be out...did you have the same clothes on? Sorry if that seems a daft question. As for changes in clothing in relation to weight gain...a couple f kilos here and there are not likely to make differences that are hugely noticable in clothing sizes. I think you need to speak to your doctor/nurse about the fact you are having hypos. How low are these hypos?
