If you can control your D with diet and exercise you are far ahead and i want to congratulate you. That is a fine accomplishment.
I do know about the dental issues -- have known for years. I have not been able to afford to have all my filing taken out. When i can afford to, i certainly will.
The vegan diet is a kind diet, one i feel well suited to. If my doctor tells me i can reverse the D i am all for it and will give it a good try.
I am eating nutritious foods that i feel good about. I don't ever worry that i am eating something i should not eat. BTW, i used to think submarine sandwiches were healthy, lol. I ate them on a regular basis.
I found your post interesting. My Doc is vegan and recommends i become vegan, too. I have done a lot of researching and decided i needed to get my health back (diabetes and psoriasis) in particular. I ended up spending $30 over my little disability budget for one week of "vegan" foods. That was just a "bit" of what i needed according to the recipes i was going to follow.
I would gladly be eating vegan today if i could afford it. I have a meat and dairy eating son at home to feed so cooking two different meals at a time is no fun.
I am not sure what i will do yet but as far as i am concerned, any diet that can reverse a deadly disease like diabetes is worth fighting for!View Thread
