I believe he did. Both tests showed negative. So no insulin production and no antibodies, if I read his posts correctly.

If that is the case, insulin will definitely be needed. The LC/HF will be very useful to keep the required dose to a minimum. Even some type 1s have gotten it down to zero basal and only minimal bolus. But, if you really have zero insulin there is no diet alone which can let you survive that.

Extremely late stage T2s can lose all their insulin capacity, but there are also other health problems which can incapacitate the pancreas temporarily. Has anyone checked this out?

357 is way too high, it sounds like you need to adjust your insulin doses. Were you recently diagnosed?

Okay update

My 7 day average dropped from 457 to 210

My 14 day average dropped from 527 to 220

My 30 day average dropped from 564 to 251

Current bg is 229 so it's going down. That was in 2 hrs and 24 mins though. Afraid i will bottom out before it's done.

So the diet and new insulin is probably working better than i thought...

I know nothing about it, but it sure sounds like you need more insulin or perhaps even a pump. In any case talk to your doctor soon, like maybe today. No omelet should do that to anyone ever!

Just read your last post and it does sound like it may be working better than you thought. Good news...
