Dec 14, 2017 · Another confused starter in Diabetes/Endocrine System

Thank you John and to the others who offered advice. I guess that the answer is to keep calm and carry on.
Without self testing I am very much in the dark so that should be a priority, I will lake an effort to read as much as possible ( thanks for the link) and press ahead with the diet. I too have an occasional cookie and have yet to convince myself that this will put me on the slippery slope. Otherwise our diet seems very good to me.
I will watch out for further advice.

Thanks for the reply, we have a good diet but it can be improved, I have cut out cakes and cookies except on special occasions and alcohol is down to 15 units per week. I am not much over weight and walk ten miles every weekend. There is always room for improvement but I will need to start testing to see how things are going. I think that I am on the number that triggers my as diabetic but I think our numbers are different over here in the UK, I have a conversion somewhere.

I live in the UK and have recently been diagnosed type 2 diabetic. I have yet to start testing but have made an attempt at diet.
What are the chances of my being able to control my levels with diet alone?
The Mayo Clinic Connect was my pick as I enjoyed my visit at Rochester in 1959.
