Hi everyone, so I was diagnosed in March, 23 years old, 5ft 9, i weighed 18 stone 4.5 Lbs....I have now lost 2 stone since diagnosis. I follow slimmingworld which has been great. For the last 5-6 weeks my blood sugars have been in normal range, I usually am between a 4 and 5.3 mmol fasting, and rise to about a 7.2 at this highest. (Occasionally it will go higher but not past 8). I’m happy with my progress so far and shows that for me my weight and previous diet was the cause of this. I have about another 6- 6.5 stones to lose to be my happy healthy weight...my main question is can further weightloss improve my diabetes more? Because I’ve manager to get it back to normal within a month after diagnosis, so would that be it? As I lose more weight would my body Handle carbs even better than they are doing now? I eat between 130-200 grams a day (this includes non starchy veggies), and I test my blood like 8 times a day. I have read about the Newcastle diet which I find really interesting, I watched professor Roy Taylor’s seminar on YouTube, and like I said was so interesting!, he had shown a before and after picture of one man who did this diet who lost a substantial about of weight and he also showed a picture of one of his blood sugar readings, a 4.6mmol I think it was, an hour after eating a blueberry muffin!, sound mind boggling when I heard that. So does a smaller body frame handle theway insulin is worked/stored a lot better compared to a obese or overweight person?...unfortunately at this moment in time I’m still classed as obese but I know it won’t be for long as I’m so far so happy with my 2 stone loss. I know for some weightloss isn’t everything, and some people that are diagnosed with type 2 aren’t overweight...but I know I’m diabetic because of my size.
