    "My diabetes diagnosis really has been a blessing in disguise, as a result of it I am so much fitter than I was this time last year!" - can totally relate to this.
    Congrats on your continuing success @Rachox, as others have said you are an inspiration and always helping others with their questions.

    Thank good ness I had high BP and had my annual blood test for that! Otherwise I’d still be fat and tired all the time, which I’d just put down to getting older :wideyed:

    What a wonderful feeling @Rachox you must have experienced when you did that yearly review for @AdamJames:) A great graphic! Hopefully your feet are not giving you any more problems! Enjoy your success and keep your great posts coming! Blessings/L

    My feet are much better thank you. Walking is now a pleasure.
    I can’t claim creating the graphs myself. It’s an app called Glucose Companion. I use it for the graphs and MySugr for the estimated HbA1c!
