    Some good news for a change.

    A British grandfather sentenced to a flogging for breaking Saudi Arabia's strict anti-alcohol laws said he is 'humbled' after being reunited with his family in the UK.

    Karl Andree, 74, was threatened with a public lashing after he was caught with home-made wine in Jeddah.
    He was put on a plane to Britain on Tuesday night after being freed from a Saudi prison, where he had been locked up since August last year.

    Speaking after a tearful reunion with his family, the grandfather-of-seven said he is looking forward to 'rebuilding my life'.

    Type two diabetic-low carb diet (50 carbs per day) and two 500mg Metformin pills per day. Apart from diagnosis HbA1c almost 12-all HbA1c results none diabetic. For over eight years my diabetes medication has not changed. My weight has remained stable, I have suffered no ill effects from my diet whatsoever. Every blood test has proved, I took the right road to my diabetic salvation. For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !
