Yes I lost a whole bunch of them around the time my mother died, 2009 - 2011. Not a few had outlived their husbands but died soon after their dogs. This is the kind of place where once you arrive you never leave except in a pine box, over the years I've kind of gotten used to losing people on a regular basis.

When we lived in Barton On Sea the place was known as Gods Waiting Room. The good thing was, when reading the local obituary's the average age at death was often in the eighties. I knew a few old people and a few were type two diabetics, still doing their own gardening and highly active. Some had been diabetics for over 20 years, no complications and ALL low carbers. This was the standard method of control years ago, before the junk flogging dietitians and big pharma had a bag full of virtually useless drugs to flog. The way to control type two diabetes was well known over one hundred years ago.
Check out the excellent free to read book on the correct diet for diabetics. Diabetic Cookery Recipes And Menus by Rebecca W Oppenheimer printed 1917 I have left the book open at page 12, check out the foods to stay well clear of.
