I was diagnosed type 2 last September. Have lost three and a half stone. Done everything they told me. My last test I was 40 (not sure what that is) but was taken off the Metformin. Having my next test on 25 July, will be the first without medication so hope I have stayed the same. Got all new clothes. Air Ambulance have had my large ones. Nice to have a waist again. Hope others manage to do the same. This site is very encouraging. I bought the book about how to reverse type 2. Very useful and interesting. I gave it to my doctor to read as well.
