    Surprisingly good article from the DailyMail It seema well balanced, and ends up giving references to both the UK diabetes support sites, which is unusual. Well done with your progress. I am glad you found Low Carb to be so effective. Remember it is not so much a diet as a lifestyle that you can use long term for control.

    Congratulations both on your amazing results and also spreading the word it’s really important to get message out there - well done you.
    A few of us are going to be featured in a low carb programme series on beating diabetes starting in Saturdays daily mail - don’t normally buy but will this time and I’m looking forward to seeing angle they take.
    Pleased they did a good job with your amazing story. Congratulations again on your results what a star and in such a short time - very inspirational for other new diabetics especially as to how quickly it can be turned round.
