I donít see any damage to my body whatís so ever. I donít know how you do it but your tougher than me. So far once a day Metformin is working. This is why I want to delete everything I posted because Iím not going to change. It sure how to do it. Thanks everyone for answering and yes Iím stubborn.
you might be stubborn and you might be going down a risky path but you are not alone and you are not the first person to try this path. the path you are on is well worn. Your posts here are extremely valuable for anyone that wants to learn and might be in the same position as you are and might also be stubborn. I realize you asked for posts to be deleted but you would seriously hurt the community here with your insight and your thoughts suddenly missing. We do not force people to do anything and we here provide knowledge and experience.

if we wanted to force people into one way of thinking, then we would delete your posts but we simply allow all perspectives and opinions and yours is no less valuable than mine

If you dont want to stay here, that is a decision you can make on your own.. but we will still be here and we will keep the lights on for you in case you need us again.

no worries my friend

I think what's missing here is the idea of what people DO with the numbers when they test. Testing 10 times a day doesn't help anyone if they continue to eat the wrong things. But if you use testing to determine what you eat, then it's extremely useful for type 2s.

My 2 cents worth. I don't think Ratter's posts are really valuable to newbies. Case in point...when I became diabetic, I panicked because all I kept thinking about was my Dad who died of complications of diabetes.

Reading Ratter's posts about having "a touch" of diabetes and having an ideal "A1C of 7%" may have influenced my way of thinking while I was in a very vulnerable point in my life.

No one wants to be diabetic. No one wants to give up their favorite foods. You do what you have to do to minimize complications.

Like my friend quotes to me all the time, "Life is too short," but I always respond with, "Yes, but you don't want to live what you have left in misery." She always teases me about being strict with my eating habits.

My Dad's diabetes was back on track after 2 years of eating what he wanted, but the damage was already done. All it took was for him to drop something on his foot, and all hell broke loose. His foot was unable to heal, and one thing led to another. I guess what I'm trying to say is that you never know when you're going to have an accident. Why risk it?

Ok...off my soapbox

The debate of whether or not this thread (or any individual post) is allowed to stay is irrelevant. It is not VS's (parent company) policy to remove threads unless they violate Terms of Service, which this thread does not.

The topics of this thread have been thoroughly discussed many times over. Time to retire the thread. It is now closed.
