I was diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes and put on Metformin on June 26th, 2019. I started some diabetes diet and followed it 100% for a few weeks and could not get my blood sugar to go below 140. Finally i began to panic and called my doctor, he told me to get used to it. He said I would be on metformin my whole life and eventually insulin. At that point i knew something wasn’t right and began to do a lot of research. Then I found a diabetes website http://www.wellhealthplans.com/diabetestreatmentvideo I read that article from end to end because everything the writer was saying made absolute sense. I started the diet that day and the next morning my blood sugar was down to 100 and now i have a fasting blood sugar between Mid 70’s and the 80’s. My doctor took me off the metformin after just three week of being on this lifestyle change. I have lost over 30 pounds and 6+ inches around my waist in a month. The truth is we can get off the drugs and help myself by trying natural methods

Pamela foods not recommended for type 2 diabetes Koretsky If you like dogs, don’t have a problem being responsible for a pet, and have the space they can be helpful. My dog isn’t a trained BG dog, but she picked up on my low BGs before I was diagnosed and started bugging me to get up. Mostly when I was getting groggy on the couch, but also from a sound sleep in the wee hours. I’d. guess that a trained dog would do even better.
Karen Gurney Yes, most days. Lately I tend to be low in the morning. Takes a little while to get my numbers up.
