    Well done. I went from 94 to 41 in the first three months after diagnosis. I'm having my next test soon and I hope it is as good as yours.

    I did 91 to 47 in 80 days low carb did not know if I should laugh or cry so didboth it is such a wonderful feeling to know that it is possible to get control. More people should have it.

    Great job!

    Given the millions of Type 2 still out there struggling to control their glucose levels, we have been truly fortunate to have stumbled upon the effectiveness of a combination carbs reduction, fats and fasting.
