Hello, I’ve just been diagnosed as diabetic with HbAc1 7.7. I had a very upsetting phone consultation with a diabetic nurse yesterday who asked if I wanted to take Ozempic or Dapagliflozin to help control things. I asked for time to consider and she is calling on Monday to hear which one I’ve chosen. I asked if I could try with diet and exercise first and she said no. I then went on to a diabetes site where I was told low carb could really help reduce my levels. Then I remembered reading the Blood Sugar Diet book a while ago. I can’t find my copy of it now but have just ordered 3 of the Mosley/Bailey books and plan to try them. I feel pretty upset and wobbly.
Any advice or tips gratefully received.
