I have just been diagnosed with pre diabetics which I have never heard of via a routine blood test. I was invited to the the diabetic nurse at my GP s surgery. She weighed me told me I should lose a couple of inches around my waist and told me I have to go on a 5 2 diet, not a lot was explained to me and I was in shock so didn't really say much nor ask many questions I'm not obese nor fat I think I'm a normal size with a waistline where maybe I could do with losing a few pounds but no more. My diet is I believe healthy eat lots of veg no junk food and I can't tell her of any of my family had diabetics as they are mostly dead. I'm 57 yrs old and relatively healthy apart
from reflux disease I've since had 2 letters asking me to go for a foot check and eye test I was also told now my risk of heart disease is higher and talked of losing limbs. I don't need meds I was told but all on all I'm on shock. Any and all comments welcomed Thank you. Paul. I'm in the uk by the way
