Because I just can't come to terms with being 145 pounds I often tetter between not being or type 2 diabetes. I have to let my subconscious STOP being the boss of me! I need to be my best healthy self since the 90s. Report

Great article. I was a diabetic for 8 years taking Metformin, but not exercising or having a diet plan. 5 months ago I landed in the hospital with a 810 glucose reading and an A1C of 13.8 % going into a coma and cardiac arrest. Leaving the hospital I was ordered to take an average of 81 units of insulin a day to survive.
Today I walk/jog 10 miles every morning at 4:30 am, I prepare myself well planned meals, eating vegetables 5 times a day.
I have lost 54 pounds and have gone to a 22.4 BMI fat percentage, gone from a 41" waist to a 32" waist. Currently taking only 10 units of insulin. My A1C was 5.4% my blood sugar average being 90.
Monday, 7/17/2017 I will see my diabetic Doctor and the plans are to eliminate all medication I'm taking as the result of what I am doing.
As a bonus, my blood pressure medication has been reduced and my cholesterol medication has been eliminated.
All thanks to this program. Report
Awesome Blog! I've been a Diabetic 2 for many years. I started out on pills, then went to injection, not insulin.
