    Millions of people with type 2 diabetes lead normal lives; however it is a serious condition with potentially devastating consequences including blindness, stroke, heart attack, kidney failure, loss of sensation. Type 2 Diabetics should have tight sugar control and see their doctor regularly for reviews, blood tests etc.
    There is no such thing as ‘a touch of sugar’ , ‘mild diabetes’ etc… 
    Take it seriously. Respect your diabetes and you should be able to live with it quite happily.
