    I don't take any medication at all.

    My 'diabetes', 'hypertension' and 'obesity' have just got me a covid jab though.
    (HbA1c has been between 32 and 35 for nearly 4 years (72 on diagnosis)/ BP was 102/61 at last count (125/75 on diagnosis)/ BMI is 22.8 (35.7 on diagnosis) - I have regularly pointed these out to my GP but as he receives cash for each of the above illnesses I seem to be so classified in perpetuity).
