I'm insulin dependant - So today I tried to start a cleanse. I figured I'd make the lemonade drink < I made it with hot water. tastes pretty good. I was hungry, so I made a drink in my juicer. Spinach, carrots,celery, apple. threw in some broccoli. Super !!!! I took about 1/2 the insulin that I usually take. and oh my goodness. It was still too much. My sugar went to 3. Way too low. I felt terrible. This is good news I guess. I had to eat something really quick as I was not at home. I had crackers on me. & some almonds. So I'm going to do this again tomorrow. = This time I won't take insulin - don't worry I test at least 4 or 5 times per day. - I think this is going to be good for me. I'll let U know how tomorrow goes. Thanks to all - Suzy;)

I am a new diabetic myself... insulin dependent. Changing to vegan has saved my life and given me hope. I am not satisfied with "managing" my diabetes, but I want to reverse it. Poor lifestyle has brought this on me and I am going to change it by eating as I should have from the beginning. But we all need help and support. This forum and its members are wonderful, and I have only been on here for a few days and on vegan for a couple months.. but feel I have another chance at life. God Bless you and keep us updated.
