I have been able to discontinue my pills with the presurgery diet-mine was very low carb liquid. They did give me one insulin shot while in the hospital due to IV fluids. My sugar levels are nearly always 90-100 and before I would spike 250 during the day. I am waiting until 3 months before I see my PCP for them to do the A1C.

I had surgery December. I cut my insulin use in half. I am superobese and am super insulin resistant. As I lose more fat, I'm sure my insulin use will steadily decrease. Not matter what, watch your blood sugars closely and get help from your healthcare provider in regulation insulin and other diabetes medications.

I must say that before my sleeve surgery I was taking 2 glimiperide pills daily...they gave me insulin shots during my hospital stay & 3 days out from surgery I have been pill FREE! I still check my blood sugar now & then...especially after potatoes or Pasta, but so far so good...it's been around 80 before eating & 120 afterwards! :) I am SO proud to have my sleeve. Not only has it helped me to be healthy & lose weight but it's helped me get rid of my diabetes...hopefully FOR GOOD!

My surgeon told us that type 2 would be either cured or greatly improved. I was in the early stages of type 2 with fasting sugars in the low 100s, now fasting sugars are back in the 80s where they should be.

I was super insulin resistant prior to surgery, on metformin2000mg, gliberide4mg, and 70+ units of insulin. Within 3 months I was able to quit taking all meds and in Oct. when I had labs done A1C was 5.5. This is a level that they don't consider you diabetic anymore. From what I've seen it either get to normal or is greatly reduced.

Thank you for this post. I had my sleeve done 1.11.11. I am very insulin resistant, taking at least 200 units of humalog a day on a pum and still uncontroled. My bs was 376 the morning of my surgery. It went down while in the hospital, and the day I left it was 135. Now home it is 190-250. It frustrates me, since I am still on liquid only. But hearing that it took a couple months, relieves me. And I know it takes time, I am just impatient! Lol.

I was impatient too. It will happen just give it time. Just remember this didn't happen overnight and it will not heal it's self overnight. But it will happen. Good luck with your journey.

The curious thing is that it often does reverse "overnight" or very soon postop, even before significant weight loss occurs.. they don't know why.

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
