That's all low carbohydrate does - it avoids glucose as a measure of "control." You may never be able to "reverse" type 2 diabetes fully. If it took you 40 years to break your body down enough to develop it, there simply may not be enough time to heal, or your body may be old enough that it can't regenerate fully. Not everything is reversible 100%, but you may be able to improve it. And again, the only way you'll have hope is full nutrient repletion and some type of healthy carbohydrate cycling. Simply sticking to a low carbohydrate diet mimics the metabolism of a diabetic and furthers insulin resistance.

It may be even worse since carbohydrate avoidance reduces insulin sensitivity even further. This is why it is absolutely laughable to diagnose type 2 diabetes on blood markers. You can have type 2 diabetes and totally normal markers!!!
