A DiabetesUK woman visited the group this morning. Usual rubbish about diet. We have all been doing things wrong. When the woman said that potatoes were OK, I pointed out that all starches turn to sugar I was told I was wrong and there's nothing wrong with eating a fist size portion. She also told us GP should all give us BG meters and strips and only 2 people said that they had them on prescription There was a man sitting next to me who used to be a moderator on here but didn't catch his name, he and I were the only slim people in the room. Next month there is a visit by a dietitian. God help us. I don't know if I could stand the anguish of listening to rubbish again.
