Community Q&A: Diabetic Patients’ Questions and Answers

My husband has diabetes. He was diagnosed 2 years ago but he was able to reverse it within 2 months and is now at normal diet. I also got diagnosed with type 2 diabetes 6 months ago. My hba1c levels were less than what was in my husband's case at the time of diagnosis. His HBA1C was 7.9 and mine was 7.2. Still I have not been able to reverse it though I follow lifestyle and diet changes as per doctor's recommendation. I am worried will I be ever able to get to normal lifestyle and food. Please help. Thanks.

It’s important to remember that everyone’s body and circumstances are different, so individual results may vary. Even though your HbA1c levels were lower than your husband’s at the time of diagnosis, there could be other factors at play in your case.

To improve your chances of managing and potentially reversing your diabetes, here are a few suggestions:

  1. Consistency: Continue following your doctor’s recommendations for lifestyle and diet changes consistently. These changes may include regular exercise, a healthy and balanced diet, weight management, and monitoring your blood sugar levels.
  2. Medication: Your doctor may have prescribed medications to help manage your diabetes. Make sure you take them as directed and keep in touch with your healthcare provider to monitor their effectiveness.
  3. Support: Consider seeking support from diabetes educators, support groups, or online communities. They can provide guidance, advice, and emotional support throughout your journey.
  4. Regular check-ups: Schedule regular appointments with your doctor to monitor your progress. They can assess your HbA1c levels, make necessary adjustments to your treatment plan, and provide you with personalized advice based on your individual circumstances.

Remember that managing diabetes is a long-term commitment, and it may take time for your body to respond to the changes you’ve made. Stay patient and persistent, and work closely with your healthcare team for the best possible outcomes.
