Hi, I have T2 but am currwently in remission, which is great. It took low carb diet and 3 metaformin a day but that was no hardship. Have been in remission for 4 years now. I am just about to try the 12 week plan from Diabetes UK so will let you know how I get on.
I managed to get myself back into the pre-diabetes range following LC but my cholesterol has risen, as result I'll be signing up to the 12 week program, once I get paid, as I feel need a bit of guidance.

Yes - when i was first diagosed i went on a very low carb diet - no carrots even!! My level came down to normal within 3 months. But the low carb diet played havoc with my insides - gave me terrible tummyache and diarrhoea and my cholestrol went right up!!
DR also did not say it would go back again - so it was a surprise 3 years later to be told i was diabetic again!! This time i did 2 courses thru the Doctors - one a standard diabetic one the other a WholeLife vegan diet. Before i started them i did the intermittent fasting really assiduously - and got back into 'normal' - but did the vegan thing to make them happy (i used to be vegan so it wasn't hard!) As soon as i finished both courses - i was told i could not have my blood sugar tested anymore - just once a year!!!
So = i have lost faith in the medical experts - i just have to figure it out myself - so got a Libre kit (first one is free from Abbott if you are type 2!!) and am getting confused so far!!!

Is your remission due to total change of diet, or is it sustained even though you have gone back to eating normally?
