T2 diabetes can absolutely be 'reversed' - I use the term resolved instead. I corrected my diet 7 years ago and resolved my T2 diabetic condition. I continue to eat closer to a way that a human of my ancestry should. Can I become diabetic again if I return to a lousy diet? Absolutely. T2 diabetes is caused by lifestyle issues and can be resolved by lifestyle issues. Having BS test strips makes it SO easy to track how foods affect your BS levels. It took 3 days for my wildly swing blood sugar to drop to a ripple at the low end of the scale after the dietary correction.
How hard is this dietary correction? As easy, and as difficult, as permanently changing your diet back to a diet that is appropriate for humans. That means cutting out grains, loads of sugar and industrial seed oils (canola, corn). I mostly eat meat and vegetables and also enjoy an apple or pineapple here and there plus high fat plain greek yogurt with blueberries.
Back in 2011 I resolved my T2 diabetic condition by correcting my diet. Took 3 days from swinging BS levels to a ripple at the low end of the scale. A1C from 8.6 to 5.0 in 4 months. Still following the PDF available at EndDiabetesManitoba.ca. Resolved 12 health issues within a year by following an ancestrally appropriate diet. Zero exercise... just a permanent dietary correction.
It technically can’t be “reversed”, but can be very well controlled with diet & exercise. If you can manage to get off all meds, and control it with diet & exercise- that it itself becomes a lifestyle. Only thing is, it can come back!!!
PatriciaOlivarez - T2 is simply a metabolic issue that is caused by diet. Can you resolved the issue by correcting your diet. Yes. Will the T2 metabolic issue reoccur if you go back to a lousy SAD diet? Yes.
It took 3 days for my swinging blood sugar to drop to a low end ripple. That was Oct 2011. I continue to eat a proper diet for a human of my ancestry. Have I been controlling T2? No. It is resolved. 7.5yrs +, is likely long enough to claim the T2 diabetic condition is resolved.
You said "It’s not reversed, coz if it was it would be like you never had it!!" You still sticking with that? I absolutely was T2 diabetic and no longer am.
