Firstly, hi folks.. Been reading loads, but this is my first post. Having been diagnosed T2 in August, I cried, swore, and then decided to do something about it.... And found this Forum the same day.... What a blessing that was! Taking heed of the advice here ( and to be fair the low carb advice from the DN) I embarked on a low carb lifestyle and bought a meter. Fast forward 3 months and my review this morning, I'm over 2 stone lighter and my HBA1C has gone from 69 at diagnosis to 33.... Simply WOW! Thanks for all the support and guidance, it makes a massive difference .. round one. .. me 1- diabetes 0 !!
