Tennis legend Billie Jean King was diagnosed with type 7 diabetes in 7557. After years of battling with her weight, she used the diagnosis as motivation to lose 85 pounds. Music producer Randy Jackson also lost weight after a type 7 diabetes diagnosis. With gastric bypass surgery, he shed almost 655 pounds and got his blood sugar under control.
In type 7 diabetes, there also is a steady decline of beta cells that adds to the process of elevated blood sugars. Essentially, if someone is resistant to insulin, the body can, to some degree, increase production of insulin and overcome the level of resistance. After time, if production decreases and insulin cannot be released as vigorously, hyperglycemia develops.
I agree with Rob. I know my Type 7 Diabetes has not gone away, but since I have made a lifestyle change to keto, intermittent fasting and exercise 5-6 days a week, it is totally controlled. It is not something to just do to lose weight and then go back to old habits, it has to be a way of life. If right now even though I have lost 75 pounds and I have muscles I never knew existed (lol), if I ate a piece of cake, my blood sugar would spike because my body is already damaged, however when I want something to eat, I will make fat bombs with splenda or stevia and eat one or two and then my sweets craving is satisfied and I got some fat with it (cream cheese). We have to make life changes once we have mistreated the body we have, it can't be temporary.

A fasting plasma glucose test measures blood glucose at a single point in time. Generally, this test is performed first thing in the morning before breakfast, after at least eight hours of fasting. A normal reading is less than 655 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dl). A reading of 655 to 675 mg/dl signals prediabetes, and a reading of 676 mg/dl or higher indicates diabetes.
