Type 2 Diabetes is one of the results of the body's failure to produce sufficient insulin.
Insulin is released by the pancreas to manage levels of sugar in the blood diabetic diets and special food recipes are not sufficient and your body requires medicine usually tablets or injections to stabilize the condition.
My Type 2 diabetes is still in remission.
I have to say that it gets easier,
I am into my third year of being free of the curse of diabetes and that I do not feel as though I have made any sacrifices to achieve my reversal of T2diabetes.
I enjoy many of my old foods but without the added carbs, all refined sugary foods are out except my Sunday dinner with homemade fruit crumble and ice cream is my weekly extra treat.
I also have reduced alcohol intake to 3 classes
3 times per week
I do eat far more fresh vegetables with my meals.and I have my own exercise program which helps burn off blood sugar energy and that take up to one hour each day.
I honestly believe anyone can do the same with only a few diet changes and begin by walking briskly for an extra 15 minutes

The work has shown that type 2 diabetes is not inevitably progressive and life-long. We have demonstrated that in people who have had type 2 diabetes for 4 years or less, major weight loss returns insulin secretion to normal.
It has been possible to work out the basic mechanisms which lead to type 2 diabetes. Too much fat within liver and pancreas prevents normal insulin action and prevents normal insulin secretion. Both defects are reversible by substantial weight loss.
A crucial point is that individuals have different levels of tolerance of fat within liver and pancreas. Only when a person has more fat than they can cope with does type 2 diabetes develop. In other words, once a person crosses their personal fat threshold, type 2 diabetes develops. Once they successfully lose weight and go below their personal fat threshold, diabetes will disappear.
Some people can tolerate a BMI of 40 or more without getting diabetes. Others cannot tolerate a BMI of 22 without diabetes appearing, as their bodies are set to function normally at a BMI of, say 19. This is especially so in people of South Asian ethnicity.
