I am a recently diagnosed diabetic 2 and REFUSE to go on meds. I read about and am trying a vegan diet to help with my problem. Has anyone else tried this diet successfully? Also, my cholesterol has gone down, but my DR said I still have to stay on meds as "diabetics need that med (a statin) to prevent strokes, even if the cholesterol numbers are down." I'm not a big proponent of the pharmacutical companies.
With the vegan diet, I've lost weight —though I'm not overweight — and can eat almost everything I want — within limits.
