Welcome to our community Graham! I cut my carb intake to 130g per day. I had to do that gradually in stages and adjust a little bit at a time. I bought a treadmill and strengthened my leg muscles. Now I can walk one hour outdoors or on my treadmill each day. That has caused me to lose weigfht and my blood sugar was much better too. It takes a lot of willpower and patience to get good control of your diabetes. Good luck to you!
