Congrats on the results. I was in the pre stages having readings around 100-105. Post 811 I am a perfect 72:)
Not sure if you are type 1 or type 2. In many cases, type 2 will disappear on 811 lfrv because the intake of overt fats is reduced allowing the body to properly assimulate carbs and use insulin.
Type 1 may or may not be able to go off insulin depeding on how damaged the pancreas might be. However, our type ones also can reduce their blood sugar and or insulin intake.
This discussion is interesting:
Yes I do. I am type 2 diabetes. Low fat Vegan, not just raw, will plummet blood sugar right into the normal range in 'many' type 2 diabetics. Watch very closely if you are on medication and communicate with your doctor. Watch out for signs of Hypoglycemia.
Also, if you are on blood pressure medication, check it frequently. It tends to drop too.
when you cheat, esp more often than not, blood sugar sky rockets. I call myself a recovering diabetic. I don't believe I will ever be cured where I can eat just anything. As long as I stay low fat vegan or raw...I'm good. I take my blood sugar at least once a week now that it runs in the 70s and 80s. I am on no medications. I will never turn my back on it.
congratulations! I celebrate for you!!!
As a side note, I gave this book to my Dad, a type 2 diabetic of over 20 years. It dropped his blood sugar below 200 for the first time in years!
It took about three months following Neal Barnard's diet for him. .
