In the last 4 months I have steadily lost weight. I’m a type 2 diabetic on medication and insulin. Losing any weight will always be an uphill struggle. However, even this loss of 4kg along with a fair few cm’s from my arms, legs, waist and hips have impressed my diabetic review team. My HbA1c level has come down from 11.8 to 6.8 – well within the normal range and for the first time in 13 years I no longer have to make 3 monthly visits to be seen by the specialist – my next appointment is in 6 months time.
