  • You should try to understand why you are losing weight. Changing from insulin to tablets is not that important,Urine analysis may throw some light on your weight loss.Only a doctor can help you.

  • Check for c-peptide and GAD to rule out Type 1/1.5. Many a times diabetics are misdiagnosed and no one is willing to take the blame:

    Continuous loss of weight isn't a good sign.


  • Keep carbohydrate intake between 10 and 14 portions per day (1 portion = 10g carbohydrate), ideally 3 meals x 4 carb portions.

    Eat low GI carbs

    Make up the balance of your meals with natural, additive-free, unprocessed protein and fat foods.

    Consult with a health professional with regard to changing medication.
