Well, been a while. I've been busy with other matters in life and stopped posting just after my last HbA1C reading end of August 2021 which was 34 mmol/mol (5.3%). This was a reduction from 75 mmol/mol (9%). I've had a lot of stress and distractions since then; hit by a bit of a tsunami of stress events and problems. Its using it as an excuse I guess, but I let the diet control slip a bit with everything else that started to happen, comfort eating a little. Weight has gone up by 5 kg, carb intake has gone up from perhaps 100- 130g / day to easily 150 - 200 g/day. I was scared to take a blood sugar reading and kept saying I'd do it again next week after I'd started getting back on track but never did. Reading from NHS blood test last week has come through: 36 mmol/mol (5.4%). Honestly, I feel I have dodged a bullet by luck rather than intent or action here. Now to get back in control of things and lose that little bit of re-gained fat I guess, and not expect things to stay rosy indefinitely with my recent lack of control. I feel that perhaps I'm "lucky" in a sense and perhaps was diagnosed earlier and so had a chance of decent remission; I need to avoid blowing that with my personal stupidity.
