Discussing :: Diabetes can it be reversed?


Diabetes can it be reversed?

In march this year I was diagnosed with Diabetes type 2 and high cholesterol.My Grandma and Dad have it so it was inherited,But still it was a shock.
The Doctor told me I needed to lose 10Kg to get down to my ideal weight...Yes this was very daunting at first as it is harder to shift the kilos as you become older I am 49.
I was prescribed tablets so considered myself lucky that I did not have to inject every day.
Anyway I started off by changing my diet No Fats or sugars and I started walking..Just a few KM's at first but as time went on I increased my walking to 10K's per day.
It has taken time and Yes I have had a few blow outs (cos I am only human)...But I have lost 10Kg and am at the healthiest I have been for years...so my size has gone down from a 16 to a 10...It has been a hard journey but I have reached my goal...now I just want to stick at it....and hopefully next time I see my Doctor she might take me off the tablets...That would be awesome...:-)



Found an article written by a Dr Hyman. This is what he says about reversing type 2 diabetes

And here’s the program I use for my patients to reverse diabetes:

1.Eat a low glycemic load, high fiber, plant-based diet of vegetables, beans, nuts, limited whole grains, fruit and lean animal protein
2.Vigorous exercise (fast walking, running, biking, etc.) 30 minutes 4-5 times a week and strength training 20 minutes 3 times a week
3.Take a good multivitamin, fish oil, vitamin D and blood sugar and insulin balancing nutrients (including chromium and alpha lipoic acid)

Sounds a lot like what you are doing so the very best of luck and keep up the great work!



Thank you Anneti for the kind words and great advise...I have now been taken off the Metformin as the Doctor says I am doing really well....I just need to stick at it...
