Hello everyone I'm newly diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in October 2018. As I read through the forum(s), I can see, that treatment of UK DT2 is very different from Denmark. Personally I was told by my own doctor: You've got diabetes 2 and will need medication. Your Hba1c is 50 and your weight is 185 kg. Loose 1 kg. a month by eating the same but less, walk for an hour and here's your prescription for Metformin. One 500mg tablet twice a day. See you in two months! That was in October 2018. I decided to go for a low carb diet and today my efforts paid of. My Hba1c is down to 38 and my weight is 160 kg.
