Like "My understanding of "remission " is that when one can manage tight BG control without the use of medication but one has to continue a healthy lifestyle.i.e. lower carb consumption, exercise etc. Personally i aim for a postprandial reading of 120 or less. I asked my doctor about getting off Metformin and he said when my fasting BG shows under 70 consistently i can. There is no set period for going into "remission " but you seem to have been proactive in managing your condition and your excellent results in such short a period says you are certainly heading in the right direction. Keep it up!"
