    I was diagnosed in 2011 with type 2. Despite losing 3 & 1/2 stone and radically changing my diet, no sugary things, cutting out the carbs and managing my size portions my HBA1C is still ridiculously high. My last one was 86. As I am awaiting an operation on my knee which they won’t do until my HBA1C is below 70 I really need some help. I have been put on insulin and I am hoping this will bring my levels down but I’m not really happy relying on insulin and would like to come off it ASAP. Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

    If you can give us some indication of a typical days menu we may be able to give you some suggestions.
