Heart Posting here, not sure if this is relevant...

I know this is an m/h forum, but still wanted to post up to see if anyone could relate. I've just been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, no real suprise, as I've not exactly lived a decent lifestyle. My weight is something I've struggled with all my life, from being little. Unfortunately I've been unsuccessful in controlling my cravings, until now. There is some very confusing/conflicting advice out there.

My "new thing" now, is LCHF (low carb high fat) yet, there are many low carb plans out there. Even the docs advice doesn't seem to add up what I've been told and researched for myself. I'm pleased to say, thus far, I'm losing weight and feeling better than I've done for a long time. Anyone know of the right way, if such a thing exists, to control type 2 diabetes? Anyone relate to all this? Ty in advance

Hello Hinny: I don't know anything about this. But, since you have yet to receive replies to this post, I thought I would just mention PsychCentral's sister website: NeuroTalk. There are lots of members over there who are quite knowledgeable with regard to a wide variety of physiological / medical conditions as well as such topics as nutrition & supplements. So if you're not already familiar with NeuroTalk, you might take a look at the forums over there & see if NT might be of benefit.

Have you been put on Metformin? I'm losing weight on this.
