Hello fellow insulin resistant types. I joined CK two weeks ago and have followed the program so far. I had some quick initial weight loss. I know from past experience with diets that the quick loses will slow down. I don't have a problem with that. I'm in this for the long haul. One of the reasons for me to lose weight is to control blood sugar. I was happy to see this group exists so we can share that focus. I was diagnosed with diabetes type II about two years ago. One year ago I began taking Metformin. Six months ago my doctor doubled my daily dose. My blood sugars have continued to rise during this time. I lost a few pounds taking Metformin but over time I gained that weight back. My Dr. told me there is no medication that substitutes for losing weight and exercise. So, here I am! I have read an article or two about reversing diabetes, even to the point of going off medication. What do people think about that as a possibility? Is it something to try for or just wishful thinking? Please share what you know. Thanks.
