However, after becoming T2 in 2007 at the age of 65, I eventually decided to cure/reverse my diabetes after reading the results of a recent study (the Newcastle diet) carried out my a University medical dept., and then doing a LOT more research into the subject. There's plenty more data available.
I haven't taken and don't need ANY medication since Nov 2011.
My BG, A1c, Cholesterol BP and all other relevant readings are now 100% normal.
Nearly all T2s can achieve the same with a LOT of effort, unfortunately, apathy or the blind belief in doctors prevents them.
In the US, the doctors are driven by money; in the UK, regardless of whether they know it can be reversed or not, doctors have to religiously abide by NHS guidelines.
It's much easier to push pills than motivate patients to take control of their lives, and then they've covered themelve against any come-backs.View Thread
