My husband had a blood test a couple of weeks ago and we duly went to see the practise nurse as requested only to find that he is pre diabetes! Apparently the scale is (I think 22 to 42 - on what I have no idea - and he was 42) We were given a leaflet on how to change his lifestyle etc. BUT heres the thing - he is not overweight, he does not eat sweets, hardly ever has alcohol, occasionally eats sweet things, always eats 3 meals, does not drink fizzy drinks. The only thing, having read the leaflet is to stop the sugar in his tea - and that is only a teaspoon. Anyone any advise?
He is worried if he cuts that out he will reduce his energy levels (never good with severe COPD) and loose weight.
