    Blood sugar diet

    I found out I had T2 diabetes in 2012. I've just started the (Michael Mosley) 8-week blood sugar diet - I discovered it after reading "Fixing Dad". For those who don't know about it, it's a low-carb, low calorie program that is based on the Mediterranean diet.

Even when she gets to the ER it takes the doctors forever to get her glucose back to a safe level.

    Reverse Your Diabetes

    I have T1, and I have reduced my insulin usage by more than 50%. And as a side I lost over 40 lbs! T2 is totally reversible. Most doctors don't know about this because they have little or no nutrition training in medical school you need to eat a Whole Food Plant Based diet and make it a lifestyle. I felt so lied to at first but then realized they just were never taught. Read Eat to Live or the End Of Diabetes by Dr Joel Fuhrman and join the Facebook group Eat to Live Diabetes Support Group.
