The rock solid fact is, there is not a type two drug, or even a cocktail of type two drugs, that would have ever got me close to non diabetic numbers. Many type two meds come with side effects, and most are close to useless. Many over weight type two diabetics, are awash with plasma insulin at diagnosis, injected insulin is the last thing they need, it only makes the problem worse, and the problem is insulin resistance, not lack of insulin.
Think about it, if most type two's beta cells are not up to the job, how can so many diabetics remain injected insulin free, and run good BG numbers, for donkeys years after diagnosis, many for the rest of their lives. Of course this can only be done with dietary changes. When the majority of medics and dietitians realise this, we will start making some progress against the epidemics of obesity and the often linked type two diabetes.
