    t2 diagnosed 10 years ago. Followed DN dietary advice for 8 years just led to higher levels and increased meds. 15 months ago switched to LCHF. Hba1c down from 96 to 33. Feeling great. I have a very long way to go to get to my target weight but that will come in time.

    What a journey you've had and how far you've come recently. No one appreciates how difficult blood sugar management is until you have to do it yourself.

    That is amazing! I am truly glad I found this board first when I was diagnosed a few months ago. I started right away on LCHF diet, and it has made a dramatic difference. Have you had any symptoms/complications throughout your journey? Did they get better once you switched to LCHF?

    Well done, that is a great result.
    What a shame that the accepted medical advice on nutrition has been so bad for so long. But people can't really be faulted for following it - me included. Though in my case it was for 'heart health' since I have only recently been pushed into a T2 Diabtetic state. I'm sure if I had been given the right advice instead, back when I started high Carb whole grains and 5 a Day, i.e the one backed by the real research, then I would never have needed this Forum.

    Interesting to hear what your HCP had/has to say about your 'sudden' turn around! Well done!
