    Hot off the press in today's nursing magazine: "A weight loss target of 5-10% achieved through lifestyle changes (ie diet /exercise) has shown to reduce progression to diabetes by an impressive 58% over 4 to 6 years. A single unit decrease in BMI is associated with a reduction in the incidence of type 2 diabetes of 13%" Diet plan to achieve effective weight loss. Dr David Haslam.

    I was diagnosed with diabetes in Jan this year, told them I did not want meds and wanted to try it on my own for a while.

    Well, I didn't really do much to help myself then, in July I joined slimming world and now my sugars are well within nornmal limits and my cholestrol has drop to normal limits :D:D

    Thats interesting. I didn't realise it would have such an effect. I had gestational diabetes so I'm told I have a higher chance of ending up with type 2 at some point. One of the reasons I want to lose weight is to at least reduce my chances that way.
    Thanks for that!
