I have had type 2 for about 6 years but am still struggling with blood sugar levels. All advice is directed at losing weight. I am 77 years old, 5 feet 6 inches and weigh 9st 2lb. I take metformin morning and evening. I have a very strict low carb diet but my sugar levels are often in double figures. I am very active, walking,gardening etc and during normal times I play badminton twice a week. I am at a loss as to what else to do, I don't want to lose any more weight. Anyone else out there with similar problems.
