Hi all I'm a Type 2, diagnosed 5 years. In those five years I have had my gall-bladder out. I would love to go low-carb/high fat but I don't think my digestive system could cope with that. I also have IBS(D) and have an adverse reaction to anything like sorbitol or any of the sugar substitutes (I have tried quite a few). I'm not too sure which way to turn with regards to diet at all. I'm Type 2 on Metformin 1 tab per day. I have a meter but as I am on ESA (lowest rate) I cannot afford even a battery, never mind bayonets or testing strips, so I really couldn't say what my readings are. I only see anyone remotely concerned with my diabetes twice a year, when I have my appointment with the practice nurse for blood tests, feet check etc. I don't think I have ever had access to a proper diabetic nurse so I have had no advice of any substance. Help!
