The infamous ADA has put new info out there for type 2 diabetics. They should be put on Metformin to control this disease. I can't but wonder why they aren't helping to educate doctors on how to help people change their eating habits rather than take a medication if possible. Don't care if I get attacked. I did it without meds from the beginning and I know others can do it too. Of coarse it takes dedication and dicipline, but it can be done. And of coarse tack on the statin drugs to get that Cholestrol down. Bull, Bull, Bull, eat the right foods, quit eating the trash thats being pushed on the TV and guess what. You lose weight, Your BG/and A1C goes down and most times everything else including Cholestrol and Tryglycerides. Sure it won't happen for everyone one unless of coarse they give it a try before Metformin. I see they have lowered the numbers for a good A1C. Guess what, that means meds right away, hurray for the doctors and Pharms. I sure would like to hear more from people who are under control without meds, how they did it. I know there are a few people on this site who do very well, I sure would like to see more.
