hi I have been a t2d for about 5 yrs. started on an lchf diet for a a year. before then I did mostly calorie counting and stuck with whole wheat pasta and bread when eating those carbs. . that was on my doctor's advise. my diabetes really never got better and my weight fluctuated or yo-yo'd. medication levels also increased during that time. complete frustration. I started getting serious about a dietary approach to my issues. I embarked on a lchf diet combined with IF with passion. my weight has droped 22 lbs since then and my A1C has gone down from 7.4 when first diagnosed to 5.5 now (I'm cdn). my meds protocol has not changed but I expect that to go on the same direction as well.
