Yet another story from a recently diagnosed type 2 diabetic, who’s doing the opposite of what the health care system recommends and quickly improves his health dramatically:
Two weeks ago, I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, after having had morning blood sugar levels around 300 mg/dl (17 mmol/l), as self-monitored at home. Changed my diet to low-carb and my blood sugar levels are now consistently below 125 mg/dl (7 mmol/l), and most often at 90-105 mg/dl (5-6 mmol/l). I want to let you know that your website has given me proper information that I would have missed otherwise…
All the best, and thank you.
I congratulated him and asked if I could share his story on my blog.
Yes, of course!
I am very happy with the results of the diet. Two weeks ago I was 255 lbs (116 kg) and today I’m 242 lbs (110 kg).
Magnus also noted his fasting blood glucose numbers each day when he started. Do you want to see?
Two weeks with type 2 diabetes, where I completely changed to an LCHF diet has produced the following fasting blood glucose results. Started out with high numbers that look really good towards the end.
306 mg/dl (17.0 mmol/l)
missed a day
This result from just changing my diet, and I have also lost a few pounds, which doesn’t make things any worse. Now I just have to maintain these low levels and live with my new diet.
I ended up on Diet Doctor through a friend, who has given me a lot of information on how this works. At the same time I’m finding stories from others, who have been where I am now.
A Strong Start
Going from abnormally high blood sugar levels, that are eating away at the body’s blood vessels, to a completely normal blood sugar. Great work, Magnus!
The other week Magnus updated his story on how he’s doing. Note that a nurse actually mentioned LCHF to him. Things are moving along, even within the health care system:
When 16 days ago, I was given the pleasure to live the rest of my life with type 2 diabetes I didn’t know much about this. I didn’t receive any further information on lifestyle except that a nurse said that LCHF might be my thing and if I eat right I can live with the disease. Around the same time I met Roger Marberg, who gave me really good advice in the very first days on how and what to eat and recommended following the DietDoctor’s website, chock-full of advice. Now, 16 days later, my morning blood sugar stays around 90 mg/dl (5 mmol/l) every morning and I have more energy than I’ve had in many years, as my sleeping has improved.
With exercise and a new diet even this old, tired body has awakened and my clothes are starting to be a little loose after more than 15 lbs (7 kg) have melted away. My goal is to reach below 220 lbs (100 kg) before Christmas, and I will make it happen. On my latest birthday I was 258 lbs (117 kg) and it’s embarrassing to think about how I didn’t take care of myself for so many years.
