Since I have been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes in 2014 till June 2018, I have been living in denial. At every single diabetic review, my medications have been increased, but the one in January 2018 was different(the one that scared me most). My DN(diabetic nurse) told me that if I don’t do anything about it, the next step to manage type 2 diabetes will be insulin(ultimate weight gain, injecting and more scary things) that I would rather avoid.
That was a kick in the butt I needed, all thanks to my DN. She was apologizing to me when I told her about it, but I assured her, that it was what I needed and thank her.
I have started researching for an answer to my problem with type 2 diabetes. At the end of May 2018 found it. Applied all the findings(wasn’t easy at the beginning) and on July 2018 at my next diabetic review, I have seen that it works. There has been a change in my HBA1C test result(January 2018 – 87 mmol/mol and July 2018(one month after applying the findings) – 64 mmol/mol. DN seemed to be happy with the positive change, but she told me( I have your insulin ready for you, here) anyway. She was almost certain that I will fail, so she had it ready.
I have been given another three months without insulin, just to see the real effect of the findings I did apply to my lifestyle.
In October 2018, at my next diabetic review, I was 12KG lighter and my HBA1C has dropped to 35 mmol/mol. I can’t explain the reaction of my DN, it was like WHAT? , HOW? IS THIS EVEN POSSIBLE? She started asking questions and we had a really good chat about it.
My medications have been lowered and in January 2019, at my next diabetic review, expecting nothing less than coming off of all medications.
As of 16. January 2019 all my medications for Type 2 Diabetes have been discontinued. Current weight loss 21KG and HBA1C – 37 mmol/mol.
On this day I have been officially marked as in remission. It is a very happy day for me because I have been working really hard to achieve this.
