Good evening everyone. I’m new here, and officially diagnosed as type 2 today. With a HbA1C of 96 and a random glucose of 14.5 Morning BM today was 12.2 which I’m horrified at. Pre meal just now was 8.4 I’m very, very annoyed with myself. I had gestational diabetes 9 and 12 years ago, so I knew if I didn’t watch my weight and my diet that this was coming. Well, I didn’t watch my weight, and so here were are. Perfectly preventable, but I’ve CHOSEN to do this to myself. So I’m rather angry at me at the moment! But, that will pass and I’ll have to get on with it. So i’ve Done the Newcastle type diets before, so that’s going to be my starting point. I’ve got metformin and Gliclazide (been told to be careful with that if I’m only on 600cals, but GP is lovely and letting me kind of bumble along and sort it out). Also have appointment with diabetic nurse tomorrow. I’ve been lurking here and I know there are a lot of people who are big fans of the high protein, high fat diet - which sounds fantastic to me, but I don’t eat meat or fish, so I’m not sure how possible it is? Anyway, I’ve seen loads of good advice on here already, so I’m looking forward to chatting to you all.
