    Hi all. I found out I was prediabetic 2.5 months ago. I ignored the diabetic nurse and started a keto diet straightaway. I loved choc and takeaways but cut right down to around 30g carbs per day. Since then I have lost 21lbs and come down from 42 to 31 on my blood tests. And I still have a little dark choc when I ‘need’ to. So just keep on going. Some days are harder than others but it can be done :)

    I was Pre diabetic with reading of 42 which went up at next blood test to 52 !! So after a review with nurse I have over 3 months lost a stone in weight and and brought blood glucose levels down to 47
    So a step in the right direction and no metformin for me !!
    Today I had my first spotlight meeting which I found informative and reinforcing on things I knew already !!
