I am new here and have been diagnosed since the new year. I have been borderline much longer. I had the classic symptons of extreme thirst and hourly urination. Tested at 450 and immediately given insulin in the Dr's office. I refused hospital for one day hoping insulin would bring BS down which it did. I went from insulin with each meal to Levier twice daily and now only metformin at 2000 units and now 1000 units. Hab1c now 6.2. I look to this thread for info and inspiration. My diet is one that I eat to my meter and is basically LCHF most of the time. My meter doesn't will not let me lie to myself.
