    Hi @Enjoyinglife and welcome to the forum.

    One important aspect of T2 diabetes which is often overlooked is that in many/most cases, the person is not to blame for their diabetes. People generally get Type 2 Diabetes or become obese because of bad NHS advice and the global food industry, not because of lack of will power!
