Guess you have not read the book/website Blood Sugar 101…I will put the website on here so you can check it out.

In the book, the author Jenny Ruhl, states..."Neuropathy appears to strike when blood sugars remain over 140 mg/dl for two hours or more." (Page 39) She goes on to remind us that damage from neuropathy impacts more than our feet...


Your A1c is really good! We all strive to have good A1c, but they only represent an average for like the last 90 days....so it is a good indicator, but does not tell us a complete story. We have to make an effort to diligently monitor our own blood sugars...

this is actually really good information and a reminder to everyone.

while there is a chance to reverse your A1C if you do what you need to through nutrition and medication, you can not reverse the complications that happen. These are NOT reversible. (like neuropathy)

so waiting until the complications happen is probably not recommended for this reason

I was not diagnosed with diabetic neuropathy by a doctor (my situation is mild - BTW). I was told in 2010 that I have alcohol neuropathy. Now this was just the docs opinion at the time.

Regarding my A1C - it has been in the normal range (for 1 year) come August, without the aid of meds. And it keeps improving.

While I understand , my point was that neuropathy is not reversible. I dont think it matters how you got it. My point was for diabetes, one sign if you wait too long is neuropathy and at that point, you have waited too long (just a general statement)

Yes, I know. Mild neuropathy is the least of my concerns.
I only mentioned neuropathy because you believe I was misdiagnosed with diabetes. 375 BG levels and an A1C of 10.9 is very serious diabetes. I see people in forums worried sick with a diagnosis A1C of 6.7. And they go immediately on metformin.

I even talked to a nurse from my health insurance when I was dx. I had her on the phone and she was certain that I would need meds. Well, I proved them wrong. I like to defy the odds.

Have you ever heard of Dr John McDougall? He says, Type 2 is curable 100% of the time through diet alone.

if he said that... He's absolutely wrong. Its not curable. at all ... ever..


But its reversible and it can be stabilized

I had a BG of almost 400. I have BG of between 75 and 90 all the time now with no medication. Am I cured? NOPE. I can not eat what my kids can. I am carb intolerant .

Diabetes can not be cured. Anyone who claims it is seeking something (money, buying a product, buying a book, or something like that).

Cure is an important word. No one in the history of diabetes has been diagnosed as cured as far as I know. When an accurate diagnosis is given, its never been cured


a person with a peanut allergy will never be cured but through diet (never eating peanuts) he will never have a symptom... but hes not cured

Diabetes isn't a disease, it's a condition where there is a weakness in the body so it cannot effectively metabolize carbohydrates. My lab tests do not show the presence of diabetes, but that's only because I don't tax my system and eat more carbohydrates than it can handle.

And, that's just for Type 2. Type 1 is an autoimmune condition where the cells that produce insulin are killed off by the body's immune system. Once they are gone, they're gone. No diet in the world is going to "cure" this.
