Liver transplant and diabetes disappearing

Has anybody experienced the following;

I was diagnosed as diabetic type 2 in August of last year.  I had "End Stage Liver Disease and was very ill.  The diabetes was "brittle" very difficult to manage with extreme high and low glucose levels, insulin 4 times daily.

On March the 11th this year I was fortunate enough to have  a liver transplant after just two weeks on the list for a transplant. My recovery is amazing and I'm rapidly returning to full health.  Since discharge on the 29th of March I've only required maybe two injections.

I'm hoping its not a false dawn.

My HbA1c is now 32mmol/l which falls within the non-diabetic range.

Any thoughts ?
