Got a diagnosis last Monday I which I kinda guessed as I had spotted symptoms and bought a glucose meter. Doctor was out of the traps quickly: meds, bloods within an hour, eye test booked, and invitation to workshops offered. Gotta love the NHS. Bit annoyd with myself as I was warned 12 months ago and thought giving up all alcohol would be enough to fend it off. Obviously not. Have had a week watching fasting glucose levels and reading the backs of packets. Part of that week I was away on a business trip overseas, so not easy checking stuff in Swedish railway stations and airports (mainly rolls and sandwiches on offer). Good news is I have lost 2kg this week, and if I am honest I have been putting off the lifestyle change required for when I retire next year, so this just brings it forward.
