I was just diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes one week ago but, of course, I have suspected it for a long time now. It took a pulmonary embolism to get me to the doctor and finally hear the truth. I was prescribed Metformin and Glypizide but I happened to find Jason Fung's book The Diabetes Code and stopped the Metformin after only two half-pills over two days. I refused the Glypizide at the pharmacy. I am very excited about the possibilities of reversing this tide and becoming healthy again. The thought of intermittent fasting is new to me and I thought I knew everything about how to lose weight (but just couldn't do it). I haven't felt excited about my health for a very long time. Tonight I found this wonderful website and am so happy to find a community of people dealing with my same issues. I love learning about different food products people like and hearing others' experiences. I know I will learn a lot here.
