You are a winner and a fighter. You inspire me too. My practice nurse has deleted the insulin and needles from my prescription list on the NHS computer system. So if I get a huccup I'm going to hv to go through hospital all over again. Gulp! Scary but I'm telling myself it's OK. Well for me... a carb is evoking more insulin to be generated and hunger. Carb hunger and hunger for anything really. Hence 2lb-4lb weight gain. High protein eating doesn't do that to me. However too much metformin gives loose tum but not enough causes constipation which I've found is more damaging for my new discovered bowel situation. Constant reconfirmation of my liver health management is the answer to my diabetes awaking. This I have no doubt. Where are you right now? Is it diabetes your biggest concern? As you know if diabetes is good it helps with most things. I just needed my diabetes set back as far as I could take it. It was way out of control. Now I know hw it starts and how to close it down. Thankfully. I just need an excellent hba1c now. I'm getting a blood test next week but then I want one 3mths later to get true perspective of no insulin injected. If hba1c and c-peptide good I'm hoping to go under my GP care only. Hopefully. I cannot wait to tell my surgeon my good news. Just have opposite end troubles to solve now but lansoprazole and Roux-en-y has dampened any acid reflux effects which was horrendous. No more, thank god.
