SignatureLow carb/low GI and exercise controlled for about 15 years. Inherited diabetes not from overweight. No meds.
April '18 HbA1c = 44.
July '18 (after constant high 6 /7+ morning readings) 48 again. 2 weeks later - for some reason it was 47 so off the meds hook again.
Started with Indian Amla powder and Berberis Aristica - mornings now around 6.1 . November'18 HbA1C was 43 (6.1) - comment was "Improving"!!!!!!!
July '19 45 (6.3) so still below the magic 6.5 which equals medication!! Have been on a homeopathic detox therapy which has brought my fasting numbers down to low 6's again from 7's. Before lunch low 5's.
Nov '19 44 (6.2) disappointed its not lower .April '20 48 (6.5)
