I am 76 years old and have been low card for 3/4 years (I still eat exactly the same as I did at the start) and a member of this site for all that time. I was diagnosed with type 2 in 2012. I have to say that this has been very successful and I am very grateful to diabetes.co.uk My annual reviews have been 41, 42 and 43. Here is the but at the start of this year I felt unwell and very weary, I put this down to old age. However I developed pains in my legs and I had to go to the doctors and I was diagnosed with vit D deficiency this has now been sorted out. I have had my annual review and it came at 53 which I am horrified about they are talking about drugs and saying that this is to be expected and the likely cause is the pancreas is failing over time. The only other thing I can spot is that until this year most days I was doing 10,000 steps that dwindled away but I am getting back to that standard again and I have gained 3 - 4lbs in weight - in am underweight anyway and I was not bothered about this. Subject to the doctor giving the ok I am thinking about tackling this by fasting do people think this is a worthwhile idea .
