Hello Old Trucker and welcome to buzz.

I have several friends who are challenged with type 2 diabetes and
trying to keep their weight down. I do know that two of my friends,
are doing more exercising and adjustments to their eating habits.

This will be a good thread to follow, I am interested in it...

Hi Old Trucker and welcome
I suffer with type 2 and have done for a while, never had any weight issues so guess I'm lucky. Peripheral neuropathy is the big problem I have.....blood sugar levels are mostly kept within the "normal" range. I am on insulin...which on Toujeo (insulin glargine) is just one injection a day instead of the three previously.
A good diabetic nurse is your best bet imo.
All the best to you...keep on trucking! smile.png

my mom was diagnosed type 2

we learned of a middle eastern thing that said to give up all meats and dairy products for 1 month and the system should reset.
with nothing to loose..
we gave it a try.
it admittedly took some meal planning to go vegan for a month.
but there is a surprising number of vegan things we already ate anyway.

and it worked !!
she was diabetes free and remained so for her remaining years;
even after she resumed her regular meals that including meat **after the 1 month period.

might be worth a shot ?
