Hi I am the same, I love reading success stories and things!
I got to my highest weight last year and also got into diabetes territory last year. I was never officially diagnosed with anything more than prediabetes but that's probably because I avoided the doctor. If I had gone in between August-December last year I'm sure they would've upgraded my diagnosis!
I was having huge sugar binges, where I'd eat whole blocks of chocolate, packets of cookies, icecream etc. all in one sitting, and I was doing that once a week for a few months.
I started getting really bad lower leg swelling, my calves and ankles swelled up so badly I looked like I had sausage legs. I even got rolls on my feet from the swelling! I was so scared when that was happening. I didn't know why and I thought I was going to die or something because the stuff I read talked about heart failure. It is because of obesity and your heart struggling but I also now know there are links to diabetes as well.
I also started getting a lot of skin infections, which I was more prone to because of my diabetic/prediabetic state.
My fatigue levels were crazy and I was constantly crashing from my sugar highs.
After about 5 months primal I got my blood tests done again and my hba1c was totally normal - meaning my blood glucose over the last 3 months wasn't in the diabetic or prediabetic ranges.
My cholesterol also improved majorly. The good cholesterols went up and the bad cholesterols went down!
So this way of eating has absolutely resolved my blood sugar control issues. No more leg swellings, no more chronic skin infections, and my fatigue improves every day
