I am wondering what you are using to manage your T2 diabetes? My guess would be insulin of some type, although other medications have that side effect as well.

I have a personal bias against gastric surgery as I have seen friends go through what was asked of them and get the surgery done with fantastic success, only to about 5 yrs later be unable to maintain the lifestyle (3 oz meals 6 x day) and gain about three quarters of the original weight back. She is unable to have another surgery, and she has to take special vitamins for the rest of her life because her GI tract has been altered where the natural occuring vitamins in her food are not absorbed. And there is no way to put her back the way she was before the surgery. (think of Humpty Dumpty)

I much prefer to lose it the slower, safer and more natural way.

I have a meal plan (I despise the word "diet") which I developed where I manage my BG (blood glucose) levels in the normal ranges, had an A1c of 5.5, and over the course of 5 months lost 65 lbs. I have been on this meal plan for more than 3 yrs now. I have written it up as a discussion on DC and it is available upon request.

God's best to you
