That happened to me. Hba1c 62 = metformin and statins, and told its progressive. Usual course of action I know now. Not a mention of an alternative. I Asked for 2 months to try to reverse it, knew you could, simply because my sister had with bariatric surgery . Google gave me the solution. A lifestyle disease requires a lifestyle change. Majority of sites for reversing pointed to lchf. The you tube 'reversing diabetes ' success stories were lchf! I jumped in feet first. Never looked back. Fortunately for me I didn't have other complications. I took to the new woe well. Symptoms disappeared practically overnight and my hba1c dropped to 47 within weeks. I knew I was on a winner. Weight dropping too....bonus! Then down to 39. I was SHOCKED! How is this not even an option? So I'm out there raising awareness for 1) offering bg monitors (I was told I shouldn't test as it could become obsessive, no need to) 2) give people the choice and educate DESMOND not fit for purpose Wont stop till we are given the option. Then we can take it or leave it. Choice is ours.
