You've probably read that your fasting blood glucose (BG) numbers should be <120 and that your postprandial (1-2 hours after eating) BG numbers should be <180.
It's also likely that you've also read that having diabetes (which means having BG numbers higher than normal) increases your risk for diabetes-related complications like blindness, amputations, and kidney failure.

This is an easy tip for faster weight loss. And since we know that faster weight loss can mean faster dropping blood glucose numbers, why wouldn't you do it?

One out of 10 people who are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes really don't have type 2 diabetes. They have a different kind of diabetes known as Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults (LADA.)
That's an adult form of type 1 diabetes.

Today, Evan's A1C is 5.1, he weighs less than 200 pounds, and he feels great! He doesn't have diabetes anymore!
I'm sure you've heard that type 2...
