    Glad you reversed your Type 2 on a low carb diet.. so did I until it stopped working, I was tired and I couldn't lose the weight again so beware. I am now on Dr Joel Fuhrman's low fat whole plant food diet not salt, oil or sugar and have never felt better. For Type 1 or Type 2 look at mastering Diabetes.. Low carb is a quick short term fix because you do not fix your insulin resistance.

    Did it stop working or did you lose your way maybe. Not everyone is able to stay focused. I'm sure most of us have had blips, whether short term or longer.

    With the research I've done I feel the lchf woe is possibly the best woe for diabetics to control their bs. It's the one that stood out head and shoulders above the rest for its success rate when I googled an answer to 'reversing diabetes ' after I was diagnosed and offered metformin and told it was progressive. I thought 'I'm.going to try this' never looked back. 18 months in and still non diabetic hba1c.

    I can see so many long term low carbers are continuing to control their bs successfully too. This gives me hope. I actually enjoy it too. And I feel fantastic. Lost 4 stone on this woe. Still pinch myself now! Never looked or felt better in all my adult life.

    Well done all. It is crystal clear the Daily Mail play both sides, like Lancet; as after crutch gate, heart issues etc on low carb, they allow this. It is a shame that they don't just get fully behind "us" exclusively. When newspapers got 100% behind say Stephen Lawrence's situation, massive change occurred. Still hay making while the sun shines.

    Big shout out to @Goonergal, for those who have not met her, she is tiny (in a good way).
