Subject: RE: BS: Diabetes... another thread
I have Type 2. My best friend has Type 1, which is so much harder. Re: Type 2: a program on US public television has recommended a Vegan diet to control and even reverse Type 2. I'm off meds for now because of diet and exercise but have read that most Type 2s will need insulin within 5 years of diagnosis. I love meat and diary, but at that point I may try a Vegan diet to see if it works for me. In the meantime, I hope to accept insulin usage. My life depends on glucose control. I have a heredity genetic predisposition to Type 2 on my maternal and paternal sides and developed this condition when I was in a comma after a medical disaster.
