Return to Article
I eat Keto Im T2 DIABETIC , I follow most of this already except some food items that arent low carb enough and have lost alot of weight with 15 or so lbs. to go down from 244. This is a very important article and lessons to learn for Diabetics , thanks.
I looked back at my blood work from a few years ago and saw that my AC1 was in the pre-diabetes range. Have the ranges shifted over the past few years? why would my primary care physician not say anything to me I wonder?
At my last semi-annual checkup, I was removed from the diabetic diagnosis after about 20 years of being there. To shed the pounds, a low carb diet worked best for me, and this site helped me a lot along the way. Many thanks!
My husband has type2 so I am reading up
went through insurance company program on managing type 2. this article reinforces all i learned and i can pull this up anytime!!
With all of the newer research coming out..since 2007, when this article was written, this doesn't really read as advice on how to reverse diabetes, but rather remain dependant on insulin..type 2 dies not have to be a progressive disease..
If you follow the Wheat Belly way of eating - no grains or sugar/ processed foods and lots of healthy fats - you can reverse Type 2 Diabetes.
I wish I could get my cousin to eat better to control his diabetes.
I wonder if someone could tell me why my b/s runs anywhere from 120 - 140 in the morning for about a week. I've lost 48 lbs. since I've been on SP. I hope everyone has a Terrific & Blessed Tuesday!
How do you change the tracker to spark d for diabetics?
My diabetes doctor lowered my insulin by 4 units, I now take 26 units instead of 36 at bedtime and no meal time insulin. She says I may be put on "controlled" diabetes program. Many thanks to this program.
Cat in CJ ... I just joined this site and so far I find the information current and helpful. I saw a dietician not that long ago and she was basically telling me the same things. What I like about this better is the actual help with meal planning vs the discussions around count this, watch out for this, etc.
I am a type 2 diabetic and on pills and insulin. My sugar levels have been managed since starting to exercise and log in my food. Hoping to get off some of my medication.
I am Pre-diabetic and have been solid seeking info. (these articles are from 2007 and there is a lot of new information out there, plus there are conflicting opinions among the articles, making it very confusing for someone who doesn't know which end is up.
I have researched out many the medical links, asking for help only to find that, unfortunately, I cannot see a professional until after I am diagnosed with diabetes . . . because of the billing codes and insurance coverage.
