    Hi Storm... as Vicky said I wouldn't have stopped injections before consulting yr doctor.. I've been advised as a diabetic that the dukan diet is not suitable.

    Please chat with yr GP about this... or I'm thinking you may have already?? let us know how you got on.

    Are you testing blood sugars before & after every meal??

    When I went on Atkin, my Dr was pleased,

    when i started Dukan, I just had salads, ham chicken, that is how I lost the weight, :p
    They say lose weight you are no longer a diabetic, Do not think so, it is the pancreas
    that go bad on us,
    I feel great, have lost 1 inch around the waist, now going to get back into my pilates, Thank you for your coments :p
