Diagnosed over 3 years ago. Started eating primal in December and so far have lost 60lbs. and lowered my A1C to 4.9. My post prandrial blood sugars are always under in the 85-105 range now. I have diabetic co-workers and it's sad to watch them eating carbs all day knowing that it's killing them. I remember those cravings. It's an addiction. Before going primal and going through about a week's withdrawal, I literally felt like I was starving if I didn't eat every 2-3 hours. Now I can go 8, 10, 12 hours and not feel a pang of hunger. Last week I did a 36 hour fast and didn't really feel hungry until into the 30th hour. So if you're diabetic, especially if you have high insulin resistance this may well be the best way to eat. Yeah primal!
