How much grapefruit pectin would a person take?  Would taking grapefruit pectin and glycosia be helpful or too much?

I am going to suggest that you eat grains and not flour. Flour works to get blood sugar levels up, but it can be too much of a rush when consumed at normal blood sugar levels. Wheat also can interfere with insulin. For a Warrior wheat is much less likely to do so, but I would try avoiding it just to see how you respond.

I would eat fruit though, not fruit juice so much. It could be useful for helping use all the veggie protein.

Back when I ate wrong I use to consume almonds regularly to help control blood sugar release. They are recommended for you and know for leveling blood sugar levels.

Plus you ever get almond butter from a health food store that has nothing added, the kind where you turn the machine on and it spits out the crunchy butter? Soooo goooood!

I haven't seen maitake mushrooms in Australia? Do you have good access where you are?

I've followed the BTD Diabetic Health book by Peter D'Adamo since I was diagnosed and commenced minimal (Diabex 500) treatment for type 2 last November. This week I have noticed that my blood glucose readings which I take thrice daily are getting a bit low at various times of the day, in other words the medication is being too effective, so I have taken the radical decision to cut out the medication for the time being. You may well suggest that I should have consulted my doctor before doing this, but I trust my instinct even more than I trust him.I have a consultation with a diabetic nurse in a few day's time so will see what she has to say about this.It is quite easy to pick it up again if necessary, but I can't see the logic in that at this point.
Very soon I shall revert to the GTD Warrior which will be very exciting.
But I still have to eat half quantities, and exercise twice as much as I used to. It's all about keeping slim, muscled and not using food as a comfort or emotional prop.I know that I will always be borderline diabetic and will have to control it for the rest of my life.
I did an interesting risk assessment test yesterday, and there is no way out of it.

Well, I've reverted to GTD Warrior for more than a week now, and it is a delight to have the greater freedom that it offers over the strict BTD diabetes book guidelines. But with my newly acquired self control (no more cakes and bikkies ever, or jam toast at supper time, etc etc that I had drifted into a year ago when I first started Warrior), I am not gaining weight, and my glucose readings are good. I am also using Glycoscia from a NAP supplier in N.Z. which appears to be supporting my situation well.
From an amateur point of view it looks as though I am getting readings in the pre-diabetic range these days rather than fully diabetic. What amazes me is that despite all this, my family generally won't take my experience as a warning, and several of them are heading full steam ahead into a diabetic diagnosis. sigh..........

Well, just to keep this thread alive, as there are new people being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes every day I want to mention that about a month ago, I took myself off the medical medication for diabetes, and only take glycoscia now,(from NAP), and my daily blood readings continue to be good. I had to see a endocrinologist specialist recently for something else, and he supported my stopping the medication, whereas a couple of G.P.s and a diabetic nurse had wanted me to stay on it indefinitely. But this diabetes is a life sentence, and I will never indulge in too much food again, and I will keep up the serious walking (and dancing). What a great experience I have had over the past 10 months, and I almost grateful for the unhappy cause of such a diagnosis as it has changed my life for the better. Next step, maybe next week, is Swami Express, when I hope to tweak my diet even further.

Thankyou for keeping this thread alive Jenny, I've found it most interesting esp as various type O forum friends who don't believe in BTD think paleo is the only way for us all to eat.

You are an inspiration

Jenny, thanks, thanks, thanks for unveling this for us.  I did the online test too and I am a high risk too, both, hubbie and I think it has frightened hubbie into action!!     No more excuses for not walking early in the mornings ...
Do you know if Gina in NZ stocks the books too, I will ask her to send it to us with Swami Xpress.  They confirmed my order the other day.
Our doctor should have the result of the tests we did the other day, so it will be interesting to see how the sugar level is.  My gosh, hope everything is OK.  I am feeling fantastic on the Teacher diet, and doing pilates twice a week, but maybe no sweating enough.  ..  
Thanks god somehow I find my way to this light beam to guide us in the right direction.  Thanks, thanks, thanks

Once we get the swami xpress,  I know it must have check boxes for family history of diabetes, but, will it also ask you if you are pre or diabetic yourself and provide adecuate diets for it.  Also, once you recovered from it, like Jenny so well have shown to do, will it allowed you to note this improvement and change the diet for you accordingly?

good question; I'll ask Gina if she knows the answer when I make my Express order today.

I wonder if you are always at risk, so you would need to keep the settings for diabetes just in case?

Maybe the diabetes box should be locked?

Maybe those genes are always looking to be exposed again and turned back on.

The only problem with the doctor saying that is that he may not be right. New information is being discovered  that genes can be switched on and off it is not so simple to make a blanket statement. I'll bet that doctor doesn't know about the Agouti mice or even the Hungerwinter. http://www.news.leiden.edu/news/dutch-hunger-winter.html

Amazing things are possible. The body wants to be well and will use its resources to accomplsh this, if we provide the resources it just may happen.
I think this GT diet thing needs more data  from people like Jenny.

   But, as I have said on more than one occasion I fear, I cannot afford to lighten up the restraints...any time I do, the prick testing catches me out. Last night for dinner for instance, I only had a glass of red and a plate of compliant fruit salad because over the previous 24 hours I had slightly over indulged. This morning I am back to acceptable readings. It is apparently a life long sentence, but that's ok. In our affluent cultures I am sure that we have got into the habit of grossly overeating.
