"Yea, totally agreed...In my place, there are too many patients with not enough docs, which leads to very short and rush appointment that cannot have much done. Diabetes is a life-long war, we need very thorough preparation and not just 15-20 mins…"

"Dave - If you read a bit more on this site you'll see that "nearly effortless" is a stretch, especially with regard to staying under 140 at all times. I'm glad you're doing so well. Maurie"

"My first recommendation to every diabetic, no matter what type or how recently diagnosed, is to go on a pump and a CGM immediately. I'm not a doctor, just a T2 success story. IMO it's cruel, and unethical, for the health care industry to…"

sdkate replied to ckurpiewski's discussion 'Go straight to insulin?'
"You have my agreement about the docs. Part of their reasoning, or the ones I have been in contact with is they don't think that people will be as vigilant as they need to be or the docs think they should be with insulin. Gimme a break! This is…"

"T2 is complicated. You can become insulin deficient as a T2. That being said, LADA is diagnosed with a set of antibody tests (GAD, ICA and IA2). If you are positive for any one of those antibodies and have blood sugar control problems your doctor…"

"What was the fasting level at the time the c-peptide was done? Bottom line, imo, is if you are not getting your blood sugars where you need them with oral meds you should be moved onto insulin. You have a great drop from 11.9 to 6.9, but that is…"
