"I went to my GP for a blood test for another problem and while i was there asked him to check my blood sugar - I have PCOS so it's always something that has worried me. Two years ago they were 4.3 which is fine. The result this time was 12.8 and I was told I was diabetic type 2. They did another GTT and that came back 26.3 - not to say I was terrified, from going from safe levels a few years back to quite high knocked me sideways. My Gp wanted to start me on Metformin right away but I asked to wait and I would try to diet a bit and change my lifestyle.
I saw the dietician who told me just to swap brown bread for white etc, keep on eating my carbs at every meal and have dessert if I wanted. She told me not to look on the internet as her's was the only advice I should be taking. I thought this was nuts and found Diabets.co.uk which I credit with saving my life! After reading about low carbing and the effect that carbohydrates have on the body, I immediately started cutting out bread, potatoes, rice, pulses and ate plenty salads, meat, fish, eggs, nuts, cream, butter and a wee bit of dark chocolate. I had a test yesterday and my levels have dropped to 6.2!!!!!"
Everyone has their own way of writing, of course. And I don't like to be picky. But it's difficult not to notice some questionable spelling on some of the headings of the threads published on this forum.
And I make this posting just to see if I'm able subsequently to correct it."
