    Roger, were you on medication when you did they intermittent fasting (I'm on Metformin) and if so, what did you do about having to eat with your meds?

      It's a lifestyle change!It's not a total cure for everybody with t2D. But a person can prevent or reverse their condition. Roger is right about intermittent fasting and diet. If your able to move and breathe you can get it done in a shorter amount of time. But if you tell yourself it can't be done then...oh well!
      Cathy a person doing the fasting and diet will cut back on their meds as needed!! Best thing would be to let your doctor know what your doing and work with him as you go!!
      My wife has had t2d for about 12 years. She also has had M.S. for 28 years and has very little mobility to exercise. She no longer injects that junk they advertise on TV.
