I've known about LC for many years, first Atkins just for weight loss and then when I became diagnosed type2 about 5 years ago I looked into it more.
I've managed to keep my numbers low so I have never been prescribed medication, the down side to this is that I have to pay for prescriptions, which really annoys me because unfortunately I also suffer from high BP, it suddenly shot up 10 years ago (in my forties) and have had to take 4 different meds for it since.
Although I keep my numbers low, I'm not strict with myself a lot of the time so I haven't yet conquered my life long weight problem, have lost some but still have about 5 stone to go No doubt this would help my BP problem.
I also take blood thinners, not Warfarin but the new drug Apixaban which a cardiologist prescribed after my second time of Atrial Fibrillation. so as you can see I really need to be doing this WOE! I keep falling off the wagon but then I get on all these great sites and forums and it encourages me to keep on going.
I thought if I participated more it'll encourage me more and help others too because over the years I have read a LOT!
