Back to this thread to share that one month out from my March 26th sleeve, I was taken off my last Diabetes med and I am in full remission. Yes, I have done great with weight loss and I'm down 3 pant sizes BUT the metabolic benefit was my main goal and I couldn't be happier.

I've also been taken off my BiPap and am told I'll only need an appliance for a short time for my formerly severe sleep apnea.

My BP is around 124/68 and hopefully my BP meds are next to reduce/eliminate.

Things that were trying to kill me are failing because of my sleeve.

That ^ is an amazing sentence to type.

Im type 2 and 2 wks post sleeve. I’ve noticed that the whey Protein spikes my BG so I check it every morning and hope to be off all my meds once I get to my goal weight.

I was sleeved on January 29th. Stopped my meds day before surgery and haven’t had anything since. I run between 80-100 fasting. Primary keeps an eye on it but tells me once a diabetic always a diabetic, just controlled now. Good luck!

Was diabetic for about 8 years and progressively getting worse...ended up on 2 insulins and 2 oral meds and still had fasting sugars of 150-250. Once my A1C was 12!

After VSG 11 months ago, I was immediately taken off all meds except metformin. Fasting sugars were 110-120. Since losing almost 100#, I went off the metformin 6 months ago and my fastings are 95-110. Can't wait to see the next A1C!

The only dispppointment has been that the DPN (diabetic peripheral neuropathy) in my toes and right behind them has not improved...I was really hoping for some relief from the pain and burning when my sugars decreased. But I guess the damage has been done and will not get better. Anyone have DPN reverse?
