    How about just sticking with basal insulin Ali ? This may help keep those 9's and 10's to possibly 5's and 6's ? You can still experiment with your fasting but you also avoid any possible complications ( hopefully ).

    Thought you might find this interesting Ali. New research suggests gut bacteria may help in diabetes control.

    I don't have any basal insulin Mo, I only have the Hypurin 30/70. In the 11 years since I've been on insulin, no one has ever told me about, or suggested any other options.

    I did speak to a doctor last week who is making an appointment for me to see a different 'specialist' than the dork who gave me Byetta, but I don't know how long that will take. I just don't want to get sucked back in to the diabetes 'machine'. They try to control everything and have no understanding of REAL healing, preferring to drug, slash or poison everyone instead. I just hate that.

    I would much rather reverse the diabetes and keep as far away from Allopathy as possible.

    The lactobacillus thing is interesting, but what a shame they have to 'modify' the bacteria in order to acheive those results. Would it cause other issues in the long run? How on earth can they 'modify' bacteria?

    A small amount of basal may suit you better Ali. I know you want to get off meds altogether but a minimal background insulin may be the better of 2 evils ?
    As for modifying bacteria, far too clever my the likes of myself. You are far wiser in these matters than I am. Do you feel it could actually work though ?

    I do think the gut microbiome can make a big difference, so it's possible.

    I've rung the diabetes nurse at the hospital and left a message requesting an appointment, and will quiz her about other insulin options.

    Not knowing anything about it, why do you think basal would work better than the 30/70? If insulin resistance is the issue surely being able to respond to any insulin could be problematic?

    I'm just suggesting that basal would be more suited to a fasting lifestyle. It is a once a day injection and may hopefully keep overall BG levels lower than present. If you begin to eating meals regularly again, I would say possibly revert to basal/bolus. It's certainly worth discussing with your doc. Ultimately, if you're insulin resistant, you're resistant to all insulin, so a 30/70 mix is of no advantage.

    Not fasting at the moment but I really think I need to. Not necessarily water-fasting but just limiting to low-carb fruit and veg.

    I came across this, and whilst it's only a short little article, it does make sense. http://www.wakingtimes.com/2013/02/07/get-rid-of-candida-quickly/

    Now I know it's addressing Candida, but fungal issues and diabetes always seem to go hand in hand. Whilst older remedies lowered carbs, others, equally successful, removed fat.

    I love fat. I find it much harder to avoid fat than carbs. But maybe I really need to get to grips with this. I would never be able to go fat-free for obvious reasons, but if I can radically limit it, it would be interesting to see what happens. If Victoria Boutenko could reverse her son's type 1 on a plant-based diet, then there has to be something in it.
