My mum bought me a book called ‘The Reverse Diabetes Diet’ and it’s basically a vegan plan. I’m currently completely unmanaged and my sugars are out of control so thought I might give it a go for January as a few of my colleagues are attempting Veganuary. Has anyone else tried a vegan diet and did it have a positive effect? I was initially diagnosed with a hba1c of 70ish in Nov 2017 and placed on metformin. My tummy just couldn’t get on with it so I was changed to the SR version. Still made me feel awful and instead of going back again I just took it intermittently. I know that’s a stupid solution but I was probably undiagnosed for quite a while so was used to all the diabetes symptoms and not to the constant cramps and diarrhoea! No surprise a year later my hba1c was over 100. The nurse wanted me to go back to the sr metformin added a further tablet (something Flozin) and an injection once a day. I never collected the prescriptions and have stayed under the radar since. My finger prick tests show I’m in a bad place as they range between 17-22 mmol but I have had a reading of 29.2 mmol after pasta, dessert and a cocktail. I felt absolutely horrendous so won’t go down that route again.
