    We can't diagnose - but - I would suggest an appointment with the doctor asap.
    Although I am not yet 70, I am happy about my diagnosis as I feel so much better, so much like my old self, it has all been positive.

    As @Resurgam stated, it's against forum rules to diagnose.... But yes, a visit to the doctor is indeed in order. In the meantime, https://www.diabetes.co.uk/forum/blog-entry/the-nutritional-thingy.2330/ might help a little with his light headedness etc.

    Good luck, to the both of you.

    Another vote for a quick appointment with the GP for an HbA1c test. As you are mostly in control with diet and exercise, presumably your husband is not eating the same foods as you, and not restricting carbs and sugar?

    The sooner he goes for the test, the better, and you can then make sure he follows na suitable diet plan.
