What is the best indicator in determining that one no longer has an "active" and "damaging" diabetes?

With all my experience with the diabetes illness, and all of its accompanying many symptoms, I would have to say that the best way of truly knowing that you're truly winning the fight, is by seeing both your feet and your lower legs transformed from sickly looking things - that might have had a horrible possible prognosis of amputation - to a reborn picture of health!
Because the medical world was wrong in placing all of the blame for diabetes on sugar, one's got to be a bit more cautious when attributing blame for things! Obviously, as I've gone to great lengths in showing, the sugar/glucose molecule is very inert... it's a very "sweet", "pretty" molecule, incapable of all that 'evil' that had been unjustly attributed to it!
As I mentioned in one of my articles on the subject - possibly almost some 20 or so years ago - when most people talk about the high sugars causing all this damage, they are somewhat ignoran that the sugars in the blood are only high because they are not being absorbed by the body's other tissues! Hence all the damage is actually being caused by the depletion of sugar - i.e. energy - in the target tissues... (remember as I've said before the blood is virtually just a simple highway or railway, along which the sugars travel towards their destination: hence what really matters is what's going on at the actual destination - namely the various body tissues!).
In view of the foregoing, people should reconsider and acknowledge that most of the very serious damage, is really attributable to low sugars in the various tissues, rather than the high sugars in the blood! Leading on from this conclusion, it's the depletion of sugar and its associated energy, that brings about the quick demise and damage, of things that depend strongly on sugar rather than glycogen. In actual fact way back when I highlighted these facts, I quoted from a book that used to be regarded as the Bible of "Clinical Chemistry" - (in my old days when I used to work at the IMVS) - namely "Clinical Chemistry in Diagnosis and Treatment" by Zilva and Pannall. That famous book did acknowledge that high sugars did not cause many problems, but that on the other hand it was low sugars that caused all sorts of problems and were very debilitating!
Therefore, as I mentioned in the brief abstract at the start of this article, the surest way of knowing that you've licked the problem, is by observing how well your feet and lower legs are now doing! Has the horrible dark skin on your shins, become lovely and healthy! Also has some of the slight nerve damage in your toes, improved somewhat? (I recall my big toe's nerve, being very badly affected when Josie Pyle insisted on me remaining on her starvation diet!)... furthermore, have your feet stopped hurting you at all times - like they used to?
In conclusion, let's summarize some of the pertinent other facts, relating to our current discussion. Obviously if you have been a diabetic for some 30 or 40 years, and your pancreas has resultantly been somewhat damaged - then you will still need some insulin, and you may from time to time have a high sugar of some sort! However I must remind you that neither a high sugar, nor some dependence on insulin - (till one's pancreas regenerates) - are a sign of "active" and "damaging" diabetes, which was the subject of our query as denoted in the title of our article!
Naturally if the damaging and acidic hydrogen ions - (H+) - are being eliminated from the circulation via one's faeces, thanks to one's unsaturated diet - as opposed to through the urinary kidney output - then one could still be taking some insulin and also have sugars a bit high in his blood, without being thought of as being an "active" diabetic that's being damaged!
