Hi Phil, welcome to the forum. This is a great place to learn what has best worked for us. With us all being a little different, things work better for some than others, but I bet you can find what works best for you from all the things we may do. Best way to judge what works best, is to test.

How have you been managing for the last 3 years?

Think I've had this since 2003. Told I was Type 2 lean on 2/13/12.
a1c 8.8 (8/2011) 5.4 (10/2018)
TC 206 LDL 102 HDL 85 TG 96 (10/2018)
Supplemental vitamins and electrolytes
63 YY Love the LCHF diet. The cheese goes well with my whine
