Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

Sorry to hear of your predicament.

I couldn't believe the doc when she told me I was borderline type 2 D. AND I had high cholesterol. I thought I was a fit cyclist.

Based on the "trust me I'm a Doctor" programme and a bit of research I went for
overkill.

1. Porridge every morning. Restricted carbohydrates (Except one day a week, Sunday for me)

2. At least 1 20 mile cycle approx. once a week or 2 of 10 miles per week.

3. NO CAKE, NO ALCOHOL, VERY LITTLE SUGAR, except 1 day a week.

4. 2 desert spoons olive oil and 2 cloves of garlic every weekday.

5. No Food after 7p.m. no breakfast before 7:30 a.m..

Initially I only Dieted for 3 or 4 days before going berserk on the Sunday, but built up to the full 6 days without goodies.

The First couple of weeks were the worst. However now i've lost about a stone or more (7kilos) . I've lost the craving for cake sugar etc. and all my blood tests are good.

I'm not sure which one of these worked or if it was the total combination !

It probably helped me stay off Statins perhaps more so than getting rid of type 2.
Anyway it's food for Thought (No Pun Intended)

I was tested a while back and couldn't believe I wasn't. I'm sure that'll change at some point though.

Sorry to hear this Andy but don't be totally down about it. I will send you some info of a real life example which will hopefully give you plenty of positivity. Hopefully it's not as bad as you think.

Are you diet controlled or tablet?

Oh I just got a new meter that the sensor sticks on the back of my arm for 2 weeks and tells you what your levels were for the last 8 hour and you can also do a instant scan to see what your levels are at a particular time, I liked it so much I got my 20 year old son one, only problem is it's not available via prescription (free if your on tablets or insulin) and expensive,

Also the docs seem to want to put you on every tablet available (blood pressure, cholesterol and kidney) BUT READ THE SIDE EFFECTS
I work in R&D for the company that make freestyle libre and even tho it may take a year or so hopefully will be available on the NHS as like you said it's a great product ..

As said it's not the end of the world, type 2 can be revesable and if I were you I would take all the possible steps available to try it will be hard work but worth it. Have a look on diabetes.co.uk lots of helpful stuff and people in the same situation on there

Define 'cream' and 'cakes'

I'm betting cakes - (made from dry porridge) filled with cream, (made from wet porridge) would be OK ?
