    Hi Liz

    Thanks for sharing. You have had quite a time of it, being newly diagnosed and then everything changing with COVID19. I hope you are getting on okay and you find the information on our website and eLearning courses helpful.

    I have been dieting and loosing weight since I was diagnosed with type 2 about 5 months ago. I have lost 2 stone and I continually lose slowly but, I find myself eating a lot of fruit mainly consisting of: melon, pineapple, apple, grapes and bananas. I pass a lot of water which is pale coloured. Apart from my prostate cancer I put this down to all the fruit I am eating. I am trying to find out if this is harmful to me. I eat about four portions of fruit a day.

    I have type 2 diabetes and reently have been told that there is change in the back of my eyes, although a part of my eyes that doesnt greatly effect my vision. I also had a horrible black bruise on my toe which led me attending the Pediatrist at the hospital. It has taken 3 months of wearing a dressing on my toe and initially using anti-biotics, i am worried.

    my blood results from the lab are reported as “excellent” I don’t understand this because when I test my blood I am getting results from 12 – 18.

    What I want to know is what can I do with regard to what I eat and what to avoid eating to bring my sugar level under control?
