    Pretty much steady now in between 5 + 8 with the occasional rise dependant on what I eat a biscuit or some chocolate, my eyesight has returned pretty much to normal took around 2 and a half months to get used to and level out, it all fine at the moment, Diabetes uk forum has been a great help

    I am thank you, my diet is far better and I am holding a nice weight of 12 stone 10 pounds, I exercise regularly and I have found that I genuinely feel better its strange but having a progressive chronic disease seems to have made me eat healthier which in turn will probably make me live longer, however ..... experts seem to possibly disagree with this point and insurance companies tend to say odds are I will have a shorter life it would be good to find out some stats
