    I heard that too! Things are going to change around here. I'm putting the stripper pole back in the bar area.

    I am very interested in hearing what Dr Fung has to say.

    I was diagnosed as Type 2 about 25 years ago. Spent the first 15 years in denial and the last 10 battling the consequesnces. During these last 10 years (per Drs advice) I have greatly increased my insulin dosages. Though my A1c readings have been better I have gained 80+ lbs. Being 54 years old and weighing 350+ is not fun either.

    A plant based diet is actually a cure. I was diabetic and went whole food plant based lost 50 lbs and now I'm perfect on blood sugar. It's not carbs that are the issue it's the high saturated fats and quality of the carbs. I'm on a high carb plans based diet and I loose about 3.5 lbs every week and my blood pressure and heart rate and diabetes is better than ever. And I also prep plant based. Alot of beans and vegetables and rice. Its alot less than what some would eat but I'm learning slowly how to prep for my health

    Jason Fung is a genius. Another thing to consider about Type II Diabetes post-SHTF is that it's likely that people are going to be more physically active. This will help burn off excess blood glucose. I follow a low carb diet because my blood glucose was getting dangerously close to the pre-diabetic stage and I wanted to avoid that at all costs. I discovered Dr. Fung's book, "The Obesity Code" a couple of years ago and what a godsend that was.

    Wifey’s glucose hit 430 a few days ago. She is 5’7” tall and weighs 9o pounds. She weighed 120 a couple years ago when diagnosed. We were a year into Paleo at that time.

    Are you kidding me!

    Good God, that is high!

    Is she on any meds? I take Metformin and Glimepiride for it.

    What is the prognosis?

    I have type 2, have had it for 20 years.

    My A1C has been at 6 for many years (10-15) now, without change up or down.

    My glucose reading, which I gave up testing, run about 102-107 at the most (averaging several strips at one time).

    For those who do test you need to do more than one shot, they can vary by 10 points at times in just one test session.

    Side plus for me is that I use the lancet for doing hematology workups on myself in other areas.

    My problem came from sitting behind a desk on the PD as NCOIC for 18 months, got a little fat on the Dunkin's.

    Dumped about 50 pounds in a year and it has been gone for about 18 years, I weigh in at 173-178 season dependent.
