I stopped caring how or why I have diabetes. Sometimes, it just is what it is.

I tend to want to believe the doctors that say type 2 can be cured. McDougall is Gregers mentor (in case you didn't know that).

Here is my diagnosis blood work. A1C 10.9.

No exaggeration: yesterday (for lunch) I ate eggplant parmigiana (with linguine), dinner - veggie burger on rye bread with corn and asparagus, 9pm - 5 slices of commercial cheese pizza. After the pie, my 2/hr BG was 106 and my 3/hr BG was 92. This morning my fasting BG was 87. I am thrilled, i'll tell ya.

I have not had to do LCHF at all. I just cut out animal products like (like McDougall and Greger say to do - and no, I am not a Vegan). The cheese Pizza was a cheat day.

What has worked for you does not work for the vast majority of diabetics, including myself. For me, the KETO lifestyle has been the ONLY thing that has worked for me. In the end, I don't much care what method people choose to use to control their diabetes, as long as they are able to control their diabetes.

If I were to eat what you mentioned above, my numbers would be over the moon. I currently have an A1c of 5.4 after starting from a 13+ A1c level. I think I'll just keep on doing what I am doing and you keep doing what you're doing.

if you went back to your lifestyle in March 2017 or prior, your A1c would jump significantly as your glucose levels would shoot up as before. Under your current management protocol and adjustments you made since then such as losing 30/lbs, changing your diet drastically and religiously hit the gym 3-4 days a week your A1C and daily glucose ranges have been more in line with normalcy. Its not cured, its treated and managed successfully.

Since my diagnosis, I have taken a good multi vitamin and 72 trace minerals. The trace minerals in the photo come from the Great Salt Lake of Utah. Our soils are depleted of essential minerals.

Dr. Glidden says trace minerals cure type 2.

There are no magic "cures" no matter what anyone says.

Some folks used to think when i received a donors pancreas for my type 1 diabetes in 2004 and I no longer required insulin that i was "cured". Not even remotely the case. I was required to take daily immuno suppressant meds (3 of them), measure my anti-rejection med levels, do lab work every 2 weeks, make adjustments to meds, lose 50 pounds, and reduce my daily carb intake to less than 150g of carbs. As a result my A1c every 2 months would hover between 5.6 and 6.0 for first 5 years (2004 to 2009) and the last 6 years 2010 to 2015 from 6.2 to 6.4 until i had recurrence of autoimmunity in June 2015 and back on daily insulin (humalog) again. It was a radical form of treatment (organ transplant) and required consistent management on my part and monitoring.

How many diseases can you name that have actually been "cured" in last 75 yrs? And do not include vaccines which "prevent" certain diseases like measles, pertussis (whooping cough), polio, and mumps. Im talking about once a person already has developed the disease.

When we look at cancer and its hundreds of diseases and combinations, many are treated successfully and after 5 years or 10 years that very specific type and sub-type of cancer does not recur. Was it cured or is it in "remission"? Debatable
Some experts don't use that word cured, noting that you can never be sure that cancer will go away for good after treatment.

I agree - for me, after over a year of doing the right treatment - the body heals itself.

Here is my June A1C done at home.
