Most treatments for Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) treat the symptoms rather than the cause. T2D is a disorder of carbohydrate metabolism, where the body does not efficiently respond to the blood glucose-lowering effects of insulin. It makes sense, then, that treatment would include reducing dietary carbohydrate intake. This is what our clients have done.
Now for their stories:
Carina reversed her diagnosis of pre-diabetes without medication, and has lost 15kg so far.
I had been told by doctors on two occasions that I was pre-diabetic and things needed to change. However I did not take this seriously until the third time, in November 2016!
The doctor informed me if I didn’t take my results seriously I would end up being diabetic and needing to be medicated. I did not want to go down that path so I contacted a coach, explained my health problems, and away we went from there.
So in February it was off to the doctor again to see if I had managed to reverse my results from November. I am happy to say I did reverse my result and was back down to what they described as a healthy range for my blood sugar levels and was no longer in danger of becoming diabetic and taking medication for the rest of my life.
I am still following the program and with the 15kg weight loss and still going! I know my health has benefited and that I need to ensure this is a total change of lifestyle to avoid these results again in the future.
Lynn lost 31kg, got off insulin medication, and reduced other diabetes medications.
I had been on insulin for 15 years and was having 35 units of Insulin in the morning and 28 units at night.
I have lost 31 Kg and have been off Insulin for over 6 months and last month had my other diabetic meds cut back. I am also able to go for walks and play indoor bowls again.
I feel great.
