i have recently been told I am borderline diabetic. My problem is working out how to reduce my blood sugar without losing weight. I am 157cm tall, aged 69, weigh around 48 kilos and cycle in excess of 200 miles most weeks. I eat a very healthy diet (according to the nutritionist I saw). After the diagnosis I cut out wine and became very strict about carbs – almost no sugar (one scone a week out with my cycling group), I eat minimal rice – mostly brown – less than once a week, and not much pasta – occasionally white, mostly brown – less than once a week. I eat homemade wholewheat sourdough bread – a loaf last at least two weeks. I have lost weight and struggle to maintain my weight at 48 kilos. I have had wine the last couple of weeks – one very small (less than 125m) glass most days. I feel frustrated and at times quite distressed at knowing how to deal with this. I become anxious about losing too much weight.
