Smile No longer using Insulin!

May need to change my username here!

Lost almost 45 pounds in about 8 months time. Down from about 212 to 170! Pants down from 38" to 34" waist and NO LONGER TAKING INSULIN and blood sugars are great.

Was on isulin for about 18 years and a pump for most of that time.

If I can do it... perhaps you can too!

And BTW... tests by my new (and now almost former) Endocrinologist at the Mayo Clinic have determined me to be a "delayed onset Type 1".

Who knew!

That's great. After I lost 75 lbs & lowered my A1c enough so my doctor said I'm in a non-diabetic range, my blood sugar started going up & I've been on insulin for 3 years now. But, at least no weight gain.
