yesterday, after more than 2 years I had a check to the doctor who said what I hoped to hear for long time. My Hba1c is 4,7% and he said I don't need medications anymore but he suggested to continue taking Metformin because of my problem of PCO's but on lower dosage: from 850 to 500 mg twice per day and he wants a report of my gynecologist and recheck in three months and if there will be shown no improvement of metformin on my PCO's he will take me totally off medication. I am incredibly happy!
I lost more than 74 pounds and changed my lifestyle completely into low carb eating but also added exercise that helps me to keep blood sugar low because of relieving stress effect. I have noticed through various measurements that stress in my case, is the worst poison even, even worse than sugar! This lead me to do anything to control it and I think I made it. I want to loose even more weight and to stay on low carb forever!
I must say that I led the Rosedale LCHF diet where also some supplements are required and they helped me a lot so that I will continue with this.
Yesterday I remembered how devastated I was when I heard the phrase: "You have diabetes" and I thought I would never be able to accept it or deal with it specially because of so many times that was told to me that "Diabetes cannot be reversed" and maybe they are right but with low carb I don't need my pancreas to be overloaded with activity and this for me means to be free of Diabetes and medications.
I look back and see how many times I failed and regained weigh but here, even if I eat one day few more carbs, I still don't touch sugar, white flour etc and I don't miss them either! I don't feel enchained anymore and this makes me feel finally happy with myself.
I know that you will all be able to understand what I feel right now cause I am so happy that I would be crying all the time - just to make you understand how painful for me was all that but now I finally feel the winner. Thank you for all your support so far!
