If you had to make only two recommendations based exclusively on your experience as a T2D then what would that be for the following profile where the goal is to achieve HbA1c below 5.6 (current 6.0) on a sustainable long term basis. PP levels behave great (1/2hr 135/115). Random closer to 100. Fasting 110-120.

1. Age below 60

2. BMI 29

3. Daily Carb consumption average 150 g +- 10%. Protein 30-35 pc. Rest good fats.

4. Trigs / HDL 2.22 (98/45)

5. hypothyroidism (controlled)

6. Mildly hypertensive (controlled)

7. Optimal D / B / Calcium

8. Exercise 5 days a week 50-60 mins per day

9. Light weights 15-20 mins + walk

10. Efforts on to reduce body weight
