    I rang my surgery for this years HbA1c (not seeing nurse for a few weeks so not got all blood results) but my HbA1c came back at 33 mmol/mol again this year and all other tests normal . The doctor wrote on my notes that I'm in remission; finally! I am pretty amazed as I haven't exercised much in the last 6 months and definitely not held back on my diet as some of you will recognise when I talk about liquorice.

    So good luck to you all for similar success

    Haven't found low carb liquorice yet except chewing the natural liquorice sticks. Always have liked doing that.

    Good news @Andrew Colvin well done, from reading about your first 3 months that was hard work but obviously has paid off. Keep up the good work.

    Hi Andrew Colvin, Gosh the picture of the liquorice sticks brings back memories for me. I am 64 and I am going back to when I was at school, I used to buy these on the way to school nearly every day, think I got addicted to them.

    Well done Andrew, that is brilliant. :)

    As for liquorice, I used to prefer the long skipping ropes, and the Allsorts cylindrical ones with white insides. Happy days.

    Well done !!
    I am not a sweet tooth but I loved the very hard black licorice sticks but I dread to think how many carbs would be in one of those :(
