    I am just wondering if anyone has experienced an improvement in their diabetes (or more to the point, an improvement in their body's ability to produce insulin on it's own and hence increasing your tolerance of eating carbs without raising BG levels) as a result of major weight loss. And if so, how much weight loss and how much improvement?
