Diagnosed at 55 in 2010.
I’m now the same weight as I was in my 20s or early 30s – I’ll never forget the people who gave me the opportunity to do it.
Edward has been retired for just over five years. He was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes at the age of 55 when he was working for an oil company. After four and a half years of living with type 2, his GP offered him the DiRECT trial. About to become a first-time grandparent, Edward saw this as the ideal opportunity to change his lifestyle for the better. Edward has now been in remission for just over three years.
