    I'm no expert here Bill but I think the modern diet compared to the post war diet has a lot of blame attached to it, what do you reckon?

    Reading labels is a good idea, the sugar in some things is astronomical. A good way is, I fit tastes nice and you like it, it's not good for you. :LOL::LOL:

    Yes that would do it. I've stopped drinking altogether and eating plenty of veg. Not losing a massive amount of weight but doc's happy with my stats.

    @HappyBrewer don't let it "pan out". I WAS diagnosed with diabetes too. Gave up anything sugary, including trying to get all my 5 a day in fruit and cut down on alcohol. especially dark spirits. Exercising a bit more and I lost about 4 atone in weight and my HbA1C readings are well within acceptable limits now. Don't let this take over your life, but a few small changes makes a huge difference. I have now had the label of Diabetic removed from my medical records, but as you will never loose this altogether, it has been replace by Glucose intolerant.

    Very sorry to hear that Bill. I guess it is type 2 diabetes so it can be controlled by diet? Going to be bad news for the home brewing I fear.

    Type 2 is manageable Bill.
    My dear old mum had it for years and years and managed perfectly well, driving into her 80's...... and she was a bugger for cakes !.. Got into her 90's and was as bright as a bee !
    Diet and control will see you sorted, stay strong and good luck.

    Sorry to hear this, give yourself time to get your head round it. In the end it doesn't have to be too horrible, there's always meat and veg.

    My dad has dementia, brought on by diabetes (and his lack of desire to control it :(). When they diagnosed me with it last Xmas I wasn't happy BUT I felt that if they keep more of an eye on me and reduce the chances of me getting dementia, then I would happily pay any increased health insurance premiums. I informed NationWide, who provide the insurance as part of the current account, and they said "no increase if you're not on tablets". Similarly the car insurance also stayed the same :).

    I cut down on fruit and breakfast cereal a BIT, tried to walk 3miles per day (£2.50 pedometer from Argos), no cakes/jam/etc and within 6months I'd lost 2stones and my blood sugar levels were below the "diabetes" level. Now I'm not walking so much, my weight has gone up a few pounds, I'm eating more or less "normally" and I'm happy to wait and see what the next set of blood tests reveal.

    Hope things work out OK for you - Gordon (y)

    That's thirty teaspoons of sugar you can out straight away. Giving up sugar in tea and coffee was the easiest 'give up' of them all. After a few weeks you will soon not miss it and very soon after you will be rejecting any tea or coffee with added sugar as undrinkable, then simply take it out of your diet completely. We hardly use any month after month.
