I'm a large lady, have been told I have diabetes type 2 a couple of weeks ago now, have been asking questions around these boards so I can sort myself out, I am disabled and can not longer work. Now I have to say this. I am disabled due to no fault of my own.. I was in an armed robbery and had to have emergency back surgery which left me disabled, I have banged on loads of weight, and tralllarrrr!!!! here I am.
So. I go to my diabetes nurse today for blood tests and b12 injections feeling very positive as I have been sticking to a very healthy low sugar, low fat due to cholesterol diet, to be told I only need blood taken every three month I said I want to reverse this diabetes, she looked at me up and down and said you can't. I said why, "the damage is already done". She said. What!! "Any way you would have to lose a lot of weight and I can't see you doing that. So I said can you weigh me, she said no. So I got on the scales any way. Ha in your face I had lost 5lb. I booked my next appointment with a different nurse but I've come home really deflated, I thought I could reverse or at least she would explain to me why but no nothing. Im on Metformin 2 x 500 .
So guys tell me can it be reversed when its weight and diet related.
