Hi and welcome.
I'm both a new diabetic and new to this forum. As such I hope I can bring about new viewpoints.
As far as a low carb diet, I must be the oddball on this forum because I try and eat about 70g-75g carbs per meal,but keep the calories below 500. Mine works for me- I've lost an average of a pound a week over the last two months an that includes holiday meals!
I have worked with my dietician and doctor and created a diet plan than matches both my diabetic needs and my exercise regimen.
I think that is the important part. Work with your medical team and devise a plan based on your specific goals and needs. Keep that in mind and you will be fine.
If one doesn't need insulin, then it's not necessarily the best treatment. Many T2s still produce a fair amount of insulin, but don't utilize it well becasue of insulin resistance, and are unable to produce a high enough level to counteract the IR. These folks do better to reduce the IR (with metformin, for example) and also reduce their need for insulin (by eating low carb eating).why don't more T2 use insulin?
