Good group. I have been a type 2 diabetic for 14 years and have never been able to get my blood sugars down to an acceptable level. Now I know why! I have started the a diet (google “ How Julia freed diabetes ”) and have fasted twice for 30 hours and my blood sugar levels dropped from an average of 120 to an average of 97. I have lost 2 pounds in the last week.
