Hey everyone. I'm new to this forum. Was dx'd T2 in 2008 with a fasting blood sugar of 387. 20 years prior to that I was dx'd with gestational diabetes with my first pregnancy, but no issues in between. Spent 9 years on more and more meds, and was always encouraged to "eat everything in moderation." Not great advice. Put on more and more weight, prescribed more and meds. And because diabetes is progressive, was finally told I needed to go on insulin, with an A1C of 10.7. That's when I started doing research and discovered keto. I jumped in with both feet on June 26, 2017. It's now 4 years later and I'm down 90 lbs, off all meds, A1C is 4.7, no more high blood pressure, no more high cholesterol, no more ibs/ diverticulitis. I've never felt healthierand I know I've added years to my life. I eat only real, whole foods, nothing processed, no sugars, starches, grains. Eat mostly carnivore, and occasionally eat leafy greens. Energy is through the roof. I sleep like a baby now. No more hot flashes or night swears. I literally feel like a new person and would encourage every diabetic to eat this way. Changed my life. Glad to be here!
