I actually had type two diabetes but I don't anymore. I was admitted to the hospital for something totally different (lung infection) when they did testing they found my sugar levels to be high, which they retested. I was 16. I knew I had diabetes a few months before but refused to say anything to anyone and get tested.

I was in denial of having diabetes cause they kept telling me I was going to end up with insulin injections and my best friend needed to take insulin injections and it scared me. I was mad and angry, typical teenager stuff. Poking my finger three times a day hurt, which I cried till my fingers got "used" to it. Endless blood work every month. I took metformin and I hated it. My blood levels went back to normal with some spikes. Every 3 months they would test my A1C and do a bunch of other blood work. My A1C's were all normal after the first two checks.

It made me angry I stopped taking metformin and my A1C's came back fine and then I decided to stop taking it altogether. I asked the child doctor specialist if I could do a trial period off metformin for 3 months 'cause my blood sugars were fine. She looked over all my test results, asked me questions, said, "well you are doing well, we could try you on a 3 month trial period off the medication but you need to follow up with the diabetes clinic" I said, "okay" I then looked at her and said, "well, does this mean I don't have diabetes anymore 'cause I stopped taking the metformin 4 months ago." She looked at me like, do not do that, she was shocked. I later go back 5-6 months to see her again and I had just turned 18 and she said I don't have any traces of it in my system, as if it wasn't even there in the first place.

I changed my diet, I exercised, I did things, and I was determined I never had such a terrible thing. Now, from time to time I get my family doctor to check my levels and it's always came back fine.

Having a balanced diet helps. I used to have wheat (breads and such) a lot, now I do from time to time, I stay away from wheat ingredients. I'm not a pop drinker but from time to time I drink it, I don't buy the same things I did before and what we eat affects us greatly. Processed foods affect our health in so many ways, cutting processed foods out slowly you will start to feel better, way better. I have food intolerance and certain foods make me sick for days to weeks.

Some people complain about heartburn, well what did you eat did it have high in acidity? If so, that is a food that triggers heartburn (or possibly throwing up). It's like what whatever you eat, your body reacts in some way or the other. Either it will help your diabetes or make it worse.

Type 2 diabetes you can change it so you don't have it, type 1 diabetes you don't have that option at all.

Default Victoza

I ended up with Type 2 after a bout of bells palsy from one of the drugs they give for that which totally messes with body sugar.

My endo put me on Victoza and I was always feeling sick and quezzy after so timed it for just before bed to sleep through the bad effects.

About 14 months after starting I was at my annual meeting my mom's oncologist (great one who made a point to meet with her family members once a year to check on us to see if we were OK based on the hereditary aspects of what she had). As soon as he heard about me being on Victoza he send immediate cease and desists to my endo and pharmacist based on the thyroid cancer issue (was major concern based on moms stuff). From that one thing even though Mom died from her cancer a little over two years ago he still has me come in for checkups, and said plans to for at least 5 more years just based on the worries.

Now I know every person reacts differently to everything so I may be an extreme situation but can say for me Victoza was not worth the risk or price, and my A1C was never really affected by it as the numbers stayed pretty much the same, and stable, on and off it with Metformin taken in both cases.

I don't see how either you or waterrat figure it is pure marketing.
There are lots of ads but the articles are worth reading. Many of them are written by real scientists and include links to peer reviewed papers. Aragon is a very well known writer and has published many articles in science journals.
The IIFYM system is how many athletes eat and it works, from both my experience and what I have seen in many sports disciplines.
It takes some effort to figure it out but all the information is there, for free. No need to buy anything. Just read it and set up your plan.

I have been following Jason Fung on google and youtube.
He is recommending that people do low carb high fat diet
with intermittent fasting.
People are reversing type 2 diabetes and obesity with this.
I am following this now and have lost weight, lower blood pressure, slowly reversing type 2 diabetes. I am in great shape and exercising.
He is doing the opposite as what the system has been recommending to do for the last 20 years. Following the recommendations from the doctors and diabetic society does not work. People only take more medication and are treating the symptoms and never getting cured. Type 2 diabetes can be cured now in most cases, by dieting and fasting.

Someguy, I started being really careful with my diet in early September.
Been doing a Keto diet and so far lost about twenty pounds.
Very difficult at first but after a week I got used to it.
I do weights for an hour at 5am six days a week. I have quit doing cardio, it was acheiving nothing for me. My strength is the same.
Yesterday's checkup, blood pressure 118/75
Resting heart rate 49
Not bad for almost sixty eh.

The keto diet really works for reversing type 2 diabetics, high fat, moderate protein, very low carb

All the weight I lost was fat. Muscle is almost the same, but more apparent and defined.
Lost an inch off my biceps but two ladies at work think they are bigger.
Also starting to get a six pack.
I used to jog every morning and do tons of Taekwondo, but never got this lean.
Forget cardio, diet is everything.

After many years of following a fairly strict high protein diet with moderate fat, low carbs and an abundance of leafy vegetables, I may have to change strategy. My latest tests show that my kidney function is poor -- not catastrophe poor but not far off -- and high protein may have contributed, though undoubtedly there is a genetic factor at play too.

So I am adding carbs back in to my diet, and cutting my moderate consumption of alcohol back to nearly nothing.

It's a bit of a scare. I run and/or weight train every day, and thought my years of discipline were paying off with excellent health. Now I am worrying about dialysis or kidney failure.

So a word of caution about strict and permanent adherence to a high protein, high fat, low carb diet. Moderation in all things may be a better strategy.

Honestly, diet and exercise has a huge impact on developing T2D and managing it once you've been diagnosed. Keto-based diets have been found to have a huge positive effect on T2D and some studies have claimed it has essentially cured some incidences of it. Keto wouldn't be appropriate for type 1 diabetes but type 2 is the result of a myriad of factors, one significant one being decreased insulin sensitivity/resultant fat gain from this. Also, something called leptin has an impact on insulin sensitivity - leptin is what makes us feel fuller sooner and is produced less the more excess weight we have. Lose weight = increased leptin = less overeating = less insulin production = more insulin sensitivity = less strain on pancreas and normal regulation of insulin/blood sugars. If you can get your diet in check (ie with keto) and incorporate regular exercise (which also helps regulate levels of blood sugar and results in less insulin needed), you would be well on your way to managing diabetes. Aside from being an SP, I also have a degree in medical/health sciences and work as a professional health care provider/educator. Good luck with this!!! You certainly can have a huge effect on this disease with a consistent approach.
