Just because insulin sensitivity declines somewhat on low carb doesn't mean your overall metabolic condition isn't improved. I said, "improves insulin sensitivity" (perhaps I should have made it more clear by saying directly that it improves metabolic function) -- the body only becomes less sensitive so glucose can be better supplied to the brain as it adapts to burning more fat for fuel. This is not a declined state of metabolic function, as was originally claimed -- it's an improved one, IMO.
I'm not the guy that said this guy has a broken metabolism because he went low carb for 2 months (oh, that was you!)
So would you recommend a borderline type II diabetic eat a high carb regimen to improve insulin sensitivity? Do you have any data to support this position?

Right know I'm not following a diet, I just took a month break, so my carbs are a bit high, but I never cut off my fat intake
Now that you mentioned about gluten intolerance, could that answer my back's lipoma? which I discovered a couple of month after dieting (although I don't know if it was there before) or my 'vertigo' (which also appeared a couple of month after dieting) that happens when I stand up quickly?.
I had some crappy fast Mexican food the other day (was with friends, had been drinking wine). The next day I had to sleep until 11 and felt sore and crappy. Seems to always happen now when I eat wheat (only once a month at most I'd say, I can definitely tell and feel crappy enough I don't want to do it again for longer and longer periods...).
I don't know what you mean by "lipoma" but I also have had skin issues (acne esp.) clear up a ton. As far as "vertigo," if you mean kind of blacking out when you stand up, I don't have that any more either though last time I was at the doctor a few weeks ago they asked if I felt like that when I stood up apparently because of my lowish blood pressure .
Seriously, try Primal for 21 days and see how you feel!
