Patients Diabetes (Type 2)

You eat carbos. You shoot insulin. Insulin is a "fat storage" hormone. the carbos turn to fat.
Stop eating carbos. stop shooting insulin. Take your Metformin, full dose. Your body will burn the fat.
You have plenty of insulin already, your cells are insulin resistant. That big insulin dose just stuffs the carbos into overstuffed cells.
Eat healthy animals, grass fed. whole dairy, eggs, butter, olive oil, avocados, tomatoes, berries, nuts. That is it....that is it....that is it.
Eat three meals a day, no snacks, Try to get down to two or even one a day. Do not eat if you are not hungry.
When you eat, eat until you are satiated.
High blood sugar is the symptom, Insulin resistance is the cause. This will treat the cause and reverse the insulin resistance over time you will see.
The above only applies to Type 2 not Type 1 Diabetes.

I have been fighting between finger sticks and cgm devices. I have tried and am frustrated with cgm. I have had
major problems with the adhesive on the dexcom g6. I have had skin infections from the sensors I have called the
company and they are not helpful Do not use this product. does anyone use a pogo meter?

Vegan for 10 years. Still had to go on insulin. The most frustrating thing for me is that my Doctors have had no clue about nutrition and have been telling me high protein low carb is the way to go. So I tried eating more tofu ( processed and high in fat). And also other highly processed protein sources. So I read a book called Mastering diabetes. Since January 15th when I got the book I have gone from 10.3 a1c to a projected 5.9. I’ll get bloodwork done next week.

My answer can change from day to day as there are so many things that are so frustrating with having diabetes. But today I have 3 things.
I think I have to say how I feel sick ALL THE TIME. If I eat bad I'm pukey, if I eat healthy im pukey. If my blood sugar is bad or good I feel sick, if I take my medicine like I'm supposed to or if i don't I feel sick. I can't catch break.
The 2nd thing is how my body hurts all the time and how easily I get injured now a days and how long it takes to recover. It can takes weeks to recover from an injury that would have healed in a day or two pre-diabetes.
The 3rd thing is how I have no one to talk to about any of it. I have 1 family member with it but due to reasons that involve neither of us they don't speak to me. My sister is slowly learning about diabetes but its not the same as talking to someone who understands. I have no one to talk to that understands.

Hi @appexangel, thank you for your comment and for sharing your experience!
To some of our new members who may not have seen this discussion yet, what do you think? What is the hardest part of living with diabetes for you? Is it a particular symptom or side effect? Or is it more of a social thing for you, like appexangel's third point?

I’m Italian so the hardest part for me is bread and pasta. I portion the pasta but I’m used to eating more than that....and the bread...well sometimes I have to cheat.

Trying to keep my sugar levels in a positive safe range.

I probably sound like a broken record at this point, but I've been frustrated lately with the lack of progress or solutions for type 2 diabetes. They were able to speed up research and development to create several different vaccines for COVID, so why can't they come up with better treatments or tools for treating diabetes? I know it's obviously not the same thing or area of medicine, but I haven't heard of anything new or innovative being done for diabetes patients in recent years.
