Diabetes can it be reversed?

In march this year I was diagnosed with Diabetes type 2 and high cholesterol.My Grandma and Dad have it so it was inherited,But still it was a shock.
The Doctor told me I needed to lose 10Kg to get down to my ideal weight...Yes this was very daunting at first as it is harder to shift the kilos as you become older I am 49.
I was prescribed tablets so considered myself lucky that I did not have to inject every day.
Anyway I started off by changing my diet No Fats or sugars and I started walking..Just a few KM's at first but as time went on I increased my walking to 10K's per day.
It has taken time and Yes I have had a few blow outs (cos I am only human)...But I have lost 10Kg and am at the healthiest I have been for years...so my size has gone down from a 16 to a 10...It has been a hard journey but I have reached my goal...now I just want to stick at it....and hopefully next time I see my Doctor she might take me off the tablets...That would be awesome...:-)

Found an article written by a Dr Hyman. This is what he says about reversing type 2 diabetes

And here’s the program I use for my patients to reverse diabetes:

1.Eat a low glycemic load, high fiber, plant-based diet of vegetables, beans, nuts, limited whole grains, fruit and lean animal protein
2.Vigorous exercise (fast walking, running, biking, etc.) 30 minutes 4-5 times a week and strength training 20 minutes 3 times a week
3.Take a good multivitamin, fish oil, vitamin D and blood sugar and insulin balancing nutrients (including chromium and alpha lipoic acid)

Sounds a lot like what you are doing so the very best of luck and keep up the great work!
