I don’t have much of an idea what most of the results mean but I did research about the ones listed above. Unless I’m getting wrong info, it appears that pretty much everything is better in the second test when compared to the first.
I asked the Doctor if I was still a Diabetic. He laughed and said it was too early to tell. He did say that I was losing too much weight and I should slow down. I asked what indication was there that my weight loss was too rapid, he carefully compared the two lists of results again but in the end couldn’t find anything to support his recommendation. I asked what indicators in the results showed him that I was still a Diabetic and again he couldn’t show or explain why to me.
Despite this lack of acceptance, I have decided to introduce myself as an Ex-Diabetic from now on anyway. Might even get a T shirt made.
Today I feel really really good. Even though I didn’t have any complaints two months ago I still feel better somehow. Maybe just not carrying a 15kg dead weight with me everywhere I go is part of that.
Going forward, I will keep to the LCHF food to get rid of more excess baggage down to whatever weight that I end up being, naturally. I have no target weight to hit and I don’t care if my end weight is correct or not according to the BMI index.
I will still drink the local beers and eat the local foods in any far flung places that I may visit and most importantly I will probably now live longer to visit more of those interesting places.
Initially everyone who I told I was a Diabetic all said how sorry they were, ‘what bad news’ and similar such statements.
But in reality it has been the best thing that has happened to me in years. I am truly blessed.
Had I not had access to the resources that Diet Doctor and other similar groups have provided it would have been a very different outcome. I would have been stuck on the Medical merry-go-round getting fatter and more diseased.
So thank you from the bottom of my heart and all power to you guys for doing what you do.

I'm actually using my husband Alistair's log in to post this issue.
We have been following the LCHF diet for just over three weeks now. Alistair is tall and (at the moment) 69kg which I think is probably too thin to be honest. He was diagnosed with Type2 diabetes around 14 years ago, and of course, was given the standard protocol to follow.
It didn't take us long to figure out that bread, pasta and the likes just sent his insulin readings skywards, so we devised our own eating plan, organic meats, green smoothies (very low sugar), salads, etc. The thing that was missing was the fats.
So, in the last three weeks we have embraced the LCHF diet and I believe we are following it religiously. But, we can't get his sugar readings into the single -figure range, which is very frustrating for him.
I'm wondering if you might have some suggestions to turn this around.
