    I am a T2 in remission, and still get my checks and reviews. Have you tried contacting the surgery or wherever your reviews normally take place?

    I know I've been having phone appointments with the hospital for mine - in fact the next one is later this afternoon

    I'm in New Zealand so assuming you're in UK my experience isn't relevant. However my UK T2 dad has had two hba1cs since the start of covid and several eye checks. In your position I'd phone your surgery and remind them that you exist. Or do you get managed by a hospital endocrinologist?

    You might have to have a virtual appointment but you should get one. 2 years is too long to go without a check.

    Sorry, yes I am from the UK. I am managed by my GP surgery, seems like I need to call them.
