Default type2 diabetics is reversible

i am a Chinese man from Singapore, 62 years of age. Last September I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetics. Fasting blood sugar : 12.5 HA1c : 8.5, blood pressure 160/100. I refused to take any medicatons as pharm staffs are not real treatment at all, my humble opinion though.
I did intermittent fasting : 16 /8 . 16 hrs fasting phase (including sleep) and 8 hrs feeding window and follow a modified ketogenic diet. I restrict my calorie intake in between 800 - 1000 cal daily.
The results: hair falling, bad breath, and constipation.
after 28 days : fasting sugar level : 4.5 to 6.1 mmol/L. 2 hrs after food : 5.1- 6.1 mmol/L. Ha1c after 3 months : 5,5. amazing result! no medications.
After 30 days I lift my calorie cap but still continue with intermittent fasting of 12-16 daily.
6 months : my blood pressure at resting phase : 100/65 active phase : 130 /85
I also lost 10 kg
I think everyone of us can do it.

Welcome to the forum

You certainly have made some great improvements in your health. Taking responsibility for ones health instead of only relying on medicines is the best approach.

As you read through this forum you'll discover that most are on some form of low-carb/high-fat (LCHF) way of eating and many are maintaining ketosis (I'm one of those). This way of eating has allowed me to keep my blood glucose (BG) low and stable. My last A1C was 4.9, which was a happy surprise.

Your use of intermittent fasting (IF) is interesting. I have been thinking about it lately and thinking that it might improve my fasting BG. I've only done this once (skipping breakfast only) and liked the result. Doing IF is more of a scheduling difficulty than actually doing.

I am curious what your meals are like.

intermittent fasting is not difficult and I think it is the best weapon against Type 2 as this will keep you in ketosis (burning fat)at all time. i also get rid of Acid Reflux and Sleep Apnea. Intermittent fasting sounds terrible to lots of people but actually it is one of the easiest program to follow.

I would like to add a note of caution for those friends who are on diabetic med. It is very important that you monitor your blood sugar level when you are doing intermittent fasting to avoid hypoglycemia. Intermittent fasting would gradually reduce the dosage of diabetic med and render it redundant eventually, but you have to work with you Dr as how much the med can be reduced progressively.

It's a good caution, old chinese man, but in the US at least, most docs would not work with us on a fasting plan. Sad but true.

I'm curious though, in Singapore would this not be a problem? If it wouldn't be, your doctors are a lot more open-minded than ours are.

My lunch is basically vegan based, approx 400 g of different colored with cheese, 3 boiled egg and nut. My dinner is just normal Singaporean plate with moderate amount of protein and veg. nothing special. I avoid all sugary foods including bread and cake.

Moon, Singaporean Drs are no different from those in the USA I think. when you mention about Fasting, their eye balls roll. But there are places you should be able to seek advice. eg "The diet Doctor ", just google and you will find the link. The best guy is a Dr by the name Jason Fung ; I think you should watch his video series on how to reverse type 2 diabetes.
you should also read the clinical trial conducted by new castle University.how calorie restriction cures diabetes.
Many of us are not aware of these successful new treatments.
I encourage you to write to them.

I did it all by myself as i was not on med when i began my journey. But i firmly believe there will be people willing to help you, and the procedure isn't daunting.
watch the youtube :Insulin Toxicity and How to Cure Type 2 Diabetes
