Hello , this is my first post 😊 I am 72 years old and weigh 10st. 2lb.

Nine months ago I was diagnosed with PMR and started on 15mg Prednisolone daily ...

Six months later I was diagnosed with "borderline steroid induced type 2 diabetes" and now take 500mg Metformin daily.

Recent checks show my blood sugar levels are "coming down nicely" according to my GP nurse.

I wonder could anyone tell me how I can make changes to live with this condition, precautions to take and maybe diet tips ? Thank you x
