Hello all, I'm Paul and I've been recently diagnosed as being pre-diabetic which has come as a shock but on the other hand no surprise as I've not been looking after myself. Working long hours driving long distances not taking care of myself eating fatty sugary foods and not exercising as I should. I thought I'd join here and see if I can share experiences and maybe get some tips or advice on how to manage my pre diabetes. Currently my blood level is 47mmol and therefore a gnats whisker from developing type 2 so I'm doing everything I can to stop that happening. I was wondering if anyone out there was the same and if so what are you doing to prevent this. I was also thinking of measuring my blood sugars once a week just to see if if its getting any worse. Would that be a silly idea? Anyway feel free to contact me for a chat or any advice!
