What outcome would you expect between the groups in their cited study, if the group that tested did nothing with the results they got? Their conclusion that testing is not necessary for non-insulin dependent type 2s is pure hogwash. The study was set up to end up with those results, the same kind of thing was being pushed with a study that showed when you ate your carbs mattered in the effect to your BG. All they did was show that your BG was lower 1 hour after starting to eat, not because it worked, but because the carbs were eaten last and had not begun to be converted to glucose when they tested.

Until you figure out what and how much you can eat of carb containing foods and get you BG down to safe levels, frequent testing is necessary. Reacting accordingly upon those results will get you to the point that less testing is necessary. Had they had the frequent testing group make adjustments to their diet based on the test results, your link could have kept the same title, but the article would have contained far more truthful reasons. This is the kind of article that misleads many people, keeping type 2 diabetics on meds and the purses of big pharma overflowing.

I did a fasting Glucose this am of 129. Did nothing special. That’s almost normal. MyA1C was 6.4 couple months ago and today fasting 129! That’s what I mean when I say my sugar is slightly high and why my doctor says it’s very mild. Only one Metformin a day. I simply don’t have anything to worry about with my slightly high sugar.

Thanks very much. It might even go lower or even if it stays this way for the next 20 years..... I can live with that. There is no guarantee it’s going to get worse. The trend is opposite so far. Next Dr. appointment is January 10 area and I don’t even know if he will do another bloodwork or not. I’m sure there are others with this same thing going on out there.

My only statement is this

Diabetes is progressive. 99.9% of all doctors will agree


Hope you’re the exception my friend

Even if it is progressive, if it progresses extremely slow I guess it would take years to show anything. I’m not going to complain with my good numbers. A1C highest ever was 7.1 down to 6.4 and I did little eating wise. The next bloodwork will tell the tale.

the way you plan to ignore it... there is a good chance you will be like others and progress fairly quickly. I hope im wrong my friend . you could be the exception. I pray you are but statistically, its not in your favor

I'm the same way. Every time I think I can ease up a bit, it backfires! A blogger I follow says there are abstainers and moderators. I do better abstaining than trying to have a moderate amount of things I shouldn't.

Let me ask you a question , I’m not sure you have kids but if you do or imagine you do. What advice would you give them under the same circumstances ? That might help one way or another
