Diabetes gone?

I have type 2 diabetes. I have been treating my high blood sugar with insulin for the past six months. I have recently been experiencing a lot of hypoglycemic events. In light of this, I stopped using insulin. I have been testing my body/pancreas out and my blood sugar is completely normal. I know this is only a fluke as my numbers usually go over 200 if I eat certain foods. But today I ate four slices of pizza and my blood sugar only went to 114 and then right back down to under 100 after two hours. The same happened yesterday after eating 100 grams of carbohydrates. The only thing that has changed recently is that I have been dealing with whacked out high blood pressure. I recently started Lisinopril for that. I don't know if using insulin has given my pancreas enough of a break to kick start my metabolism or what. Also, I have been eating mostly one meal a day and doing a lot of fasting. I'm going to continue to see how long my pancreas works. I kind of like not having to inject insulin. I may also modify my diet more. I don't eat 100 crabs a day every day, but just doing this a few days a week is not ideal. My last A1C was 5.4 and my cholesterol is normal now. I am on Statins for this as well. Maybe this is just a fluke and my high BG numbers will be back. If not, I need to keep this going. It is giving me a little bit of hope that maybe one of my health conditions can be controlled without meds. I am however still taking 2000 mgs of Metformin daily. I know I need this to hold down my fasting blood sugars. I will keep you guys posted with my progress. I just wanted to ask you all of this seems weird to you? Maybe my meter is busted? Who knows.

You may NOT be a type-2. You could be a type1 or type-1.5 (aka LADA, or slow onset type-1 in honeymoon phase) How long ag were you diagnosed? Many people are MISdiagnoised as type-2 when they are actually a type-1 or 1.5.
