Smile Hi

Hi everyone, I'm new, just registered and looking forward to learning from you. I'm a Type 2 diabetic of 9 years since diagnosis. I've struggled a lot with getting it controlled but recently have managed to lose a lot of weight (6st) and come off my Glucophage (500mgs tds) and just had my last AN1C of 5.3. I've got my carbs intake down to 30g a day and all is going pretty well. No hypos and loads of energy. Also have come off antiypertensives, CPAP for sleep apnoea, and my diuretics.
