I'm a type 2 diabetic
My fasting blood sugee has been 300 for 2 months.. My oral medications are useless..

I've been eating ONLY non-starchy vegetables for the last 20 days
Drinking Al lot of water
Nothing else at all

I know it's a Crazy and an extremely hard diet.. BUT my fasting blood suger droped from 300 to 90 without any medications and without any sports or physical activities..

I don't know how long i'll stay on this diet.. I'M thinking about more 40 days..
I feel good..With a great will.

If u try it.. Keep me updated

Wow what a change. I have been on a almost carb free diet for almost 3 months and my results are not even close.. I noticed a slight drop in my levels.. I have been eating a lot of protein, but that is about it.I have now decided to go to long lasting insulin..

The real key is to accomplish good blood glucose control with good nutrition in the form of a healthy balanced food plan! There are members here that are doing just that. They are also (in some cases) doing it without medications! It can be done, and it is being done.

I agree with the others and especially with what Glucerna has stated! Talk with a registered dietician and build on some of the advantages that you are finding. Unless you are an expert in nutrition, it's most likely best to not take chances!

It's great that you're making changes to your eating habits, but I agree with the others that you need more than just vegetables to maintain your health over time. Definitely talk with your doctor, or ask for a referral to a registered dietitian who can help you build on the changes you've made and continue to feel good. ~Lynn @Glucerna

Howdy Salad-aholic!

I agree with Haoleboy in that this meal plan sounds dangerous as it is completely lacking in protein. I had done something similar back in 2011 (and follow a modified version of the plan even to this day) where I went low carb and high protein. I manage my T2 without the use of diabetes meds strictly by what I eat (and don't eat). Should you be interested just ask and I will share my meal plan for your perusal.

Praying God's best for you and yours

whatever works , I guess.
I would encourage you to consult your doctor as it sounds as though your diet is completely lacking in protein and lipids (fats) and that can be very dangerous … do a little research on Ketosis
