About Me

  • About wallycorker
    Non-insulin-dependent Type 2 who was diagnosed in December 2000. After eight years of progression went onto 2000mg of metformin tablets. However, recently got off metformin altogether without any significant change in blood glucose readings.

    Your experiences with diabetes
    I have reversed my condition over the last two years through the power of diet - in particular by cutting back on the starchy carbohydrate that I eat - i.e. cereals, bread, potatoes, pasta, rice, pizza etc. HbA1c at it's highest was 9.4% but recently was as low as 5% - i.e. just two years after starting to test and beginning to reduce my starchy carbohydrate intake. At that stage, my GP reduced my metformin dosage from 2000mg to 1000mg per day. One month later, my HbA1c was still 5.3% so my GP took me off metformin medication altogether. All diabetic symptoms have disappeared.
