My GP told me two years ago I was prediabetic. I was always going to do that diet again (the Prof Roy Taylor 800 cal low carb) which I'm now doing... but lock down happened and now I have been tested again and told I have a HBA1C of 55 and the doctor has declared me to be type 2. But he has also said he is not going to give me any metformin 'right now' and test me again in a month. (which seems odd as HbA1c is a look back of a few months?) The diet is my own doing not his and I know I need to lose weight but will losing 10-15kg have a realistic chance of remission? ## I ask as in 2015 I lost 5kg and normalised myself. All they told me two years ago was 'oh you need to lose a bit of weight'. Not "if you don't you'll be diabetic girl'. I blame myself here but it's just tricky sitting at a desk all day commuting for 3 hours and I hate exercise! Double issue as i am tachycardic at the moment and they can't find out why. I'll not be out running until that's sorted. My GP wont' see me face to face either so doing this by phone is frustrating. Very frustrating. Ali, 52, Surrey.
