Hi my names Paul. 5 years ago I was told I had type 2. In five years if anything its got better, I sold up and left England and bought a small yatch then spent 4 years sailing in the med. A compleat change of lifestyle, a very different diet and much more exercise. Now i live in Spain , somebody gave me a dog and Ive found her to be one of the best things to help me get more exercise. 3 or 4 good walks a day. I had a blood test last month and it was pretty good. The med diet is so much better with plenty of fish, olives, and salads and fresh fruit.
