    Type two medications and injected insulin makes the disease worse!

    It should be understood when you bring down elevated blood glucose numbers with medication, you are treating the main symptom not the disease. Type two diabetes medications come with side effects, and type two medications and injected insulin makes the disease worse ! Chronic insulin resistance is the disease, treat the disease not the symptoms. Check out Dr Jason Fung and he explains why this is true.

    A must watch video for all.

    Type two diabetic-low carb diet (50 carbs per day) and two 500mg Metformin pills per day. Apart from diagnosis HbA1c almost 12-all HbA1c results none diabetic. For over eight years my diabetes medication has not changed. My weight has remained stable, I have suffered no ill effects from my diet whatsoever. Every blood test has proved, I took the right road to my diabetic salvation. For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !

    Unfortunately for those who have gone so far down the line, once the beta cells are gone, then insulin will be needed. By all means we need to try to stop ourselves going this far but insulin must be considered if only as a final option.

    I agree 100% but here's the kicker, the info posted in my other thread regarding type two diabetics and insulin stated the mortality rate was "dose dependent" Thus, the less insulin required the better the survival for type two diabetics. I won't bang on about how insulin use can be drastically reduced. But we all know the less the carbs, the less the insulin, the better the control. Insulin ain't no get out of jail free card for any diabetic, but many will kid you it is.

    Guide to Type 2 Diabetes and Insulin


    “It's reasonable for a woman with diabetes to consume two to three servings of carbs per meal for a total of about 30 to 45 grams. For a man, three to four servings of carbs per meal should total about 45 to 60 grams,” says O’Connor.

    Should ensure higher insulin dose for those that take in this advice Sad
