How Artur turned his life around

Artur SS

Artur’s life had become a bit of a mess and he didn’t know how to turn it around. He was battling numerous diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, and was feeling worse and worse. But then he found the Diet Doctor site and his life changed. This is his story:

Hi there!

I’m Artur, I live in Poland, and I’d like to shortly tell my story. It might seem a bit too emotional, but please, keep reading.

When I was 24, (which was quite a while ago), I was a very good student and about to become a scientist. I got married and all I had to do was to complete my master thesis. My life so far had been a great success. And then came the depression. My wife had left me after three months. I did not become a scientist. I went through Cushing’s syndrome and after a couple of years, through Conn’s syndrome. I became insulin resistant, then I got type 2 diabetes. Docs gave me insulin to keep the blood sugar lower. My life became a disaster. I grew fatter and fatter. Then I had my adrenal glands removed, but still, I had no idea how to lose weight. Then I came across your site.

Now I have another wife and two daughters. I finished my studies, after many years.

That’s it. That’s the whole story.

Just look at the enclosed pictures – one taken in 2012 and the other in 2019. It was 157 kilos (347 pounds), now it’s 97 kilos (214 pounds) and going down.

Thank you so much, you have saved me. Thank you.




Congratulations and thank you for sharing your story. If our team has been of help to you in your journey, that makes me very happy.
