    T2 diagnosed April 19. 500mg metformin.

    Just had my first Hba1c re-test results - down from 106 to 43.

    Still being monitored and on metformin for another three months as such early days. I have balled like a baby but feel very proud.

    Have followed a low-carb diet and basically eaten out of the fridge rather than cupboards and packets, 8:16 IF and swam 3-4 times a week for about a mile and 3/4 each swim.

    Thank you everyone. I know it’s early days and now I have to lower a bit more and sustain but I am thrilled.
