"My doctor considers me to be cured" – Carol H

I was diagnosed in March 2009 with what my doctor described as an 'aggressive case of Type Two diabetes'.

I was immediately prescribed Metformin, Statins and Aspirin. My doctor advised me that he expected to put me on Insulin at my annual review.

I began to follow the low GL diet and in 12 months I lost over 6 stone and was able to come off all medication; my HbA1c was 5.1. I have continued on the Low GL diet, my weight has remained stable and my doctor considers me to be 'cured' as my blood sugar levels remain 'normal'.
