    Had a convo on Reddit a few months ago with a guy who had spent 25 years in remission.
    His only ever A1c > 48(6.5%) was his diagnostic.
    No meds, just low carb all the way.
    His wife was in the same boat, 20 years since her diagnosis, highest A1c was 5.4% since.

    Meeting people like that is inspirational, it's what keeps me on track.
    Who's the longest in remission you have met online ? Any similar stories

    I’ve met (online and in person) one person from this site who’s at least 10 years in and many others who are now 5-6 years in. That group includes me!
