I'm 3 months into Dr. Barnard's program to use vegan diet to reverse diabetes. Meanwhile, my wife Julia experimenting with cooking vegan meals. I cut down Lantus from 170 to 80 daily, and Novolog from 80 to 20. My A1C went down from 9% to 7.3%. I'm looking forward to learn more about the "beast", since 2004, I was mostly degrading with progressing neuropathy, so as blood sugars (up to 350mg/dL), now I keep them below 200.
