    I spoke to the GP today to get my full results from my 2nd set of bloods taken last week, to say I am pleased is an understatement.

    Previous results from Feb 2017
    HB1aC - 92
    Cholesterol - 6.8
    Liver function - all ok
    Kidney function - all ok

    Latest results
    HB1aC - 34
    Cholesterol - 3.6
    Liver function - all ok
    Kidney function - all ok

    Since being diagnosed as T2 in February this year I have been trying to stick to a LCHF diet, I dropped 15kg while on Metformin and lately Gliclazide and a Statin for the Cholesterol. The Dr was very pleased with my progress and asked me to drop the Gliclazide :woot: He also said I should be pleased with the results, which of course is an understatement, I am actually over the moon and came off the phone with a big beaming smile on my face :cat:

    I have to go back in February to get another set of bloods done but I am hoping to hold the latest figures. I have managed to keep the weight off without trying too hard, and I am feeling a lot better for it :)

    There is life after diagnosis....
