Ani feared he would not live long enough to raise his kids. He had “the whole package” according to his doctor: Type 2 diabetes and just about every kind of risk factor for a heart attack, despite being only 43 years old.
His doctors just wanted to add ever more medication. But Ani went searching frantically online for a cure, as he wanted to live. And then he came across this website.
What happened next – in just a few weeks – surprised both Ani and his doctor:
Greetings from India!
My name is Aniruddha Bhaduri (Ani for short), 43 year-old male living in New Delhi. I have been suffering from type 2 diabetes since 2004, along with GERD, high blood pressure, high triglycerides, high cholesterols with low HDL; (my doctor says “the whole package”).
For the last 10 years I underwent continuous oral medications and my doctor (endocrinologist) repeatedly insisted in the last 3 years that I start taking insulin shots which I refused. Also, my dietician for diabetes management advised me with a food chart to follow, which had so much of carbs in it, like rice, roti, dahl, biscuits, oats, etc. I was taking the following medicines everyday:
1 tab Rabeprazole 20 mg
1 tab Glizid-M (Gliclazide 80 mg and Metformin 500 mg) in the morning
1 tab Galvus MET (Vildagliptin 50 / Metformin 500) after dinner
1 tab Telmisartan 20 mg after breakfast
My doctor also prescribed Tonact-TG (10 mg Atorvastatin / Fenofibrate 160 mg), which I stopped taking 6 months back after I read about the negative effects of Statin drugs.
I had been monitoring my blood sugar irregularly and on the 22th of Jan 2015 on a sudden random check after dinner (2 hours) found it to be very high at 353 mg/dl. The levels showed high too during random checks for the next 4 days. I really got alarmed and went for a blood test on 3rd of March at a lab for FBS, PP, HbA1c and Lipids. The results were as follows:
Looking at the TG/HDL ratio, I panicked. I feared for my life, I have 2 kids (a daughter of 7 years and a son of 1 year) and felt that I may die of heart attack anytime now and won’t be able to raise them.
However, I did not go to my doctor then, as I knew that she would insist me to take insulin shots immediately, and this was something I did not want to do. I started to look up the internet and searched frantically for a cure for diabetes, as I want to live. AND THEN I CAME ACROSS YOUR WEBSITE & YOU SAVED MY LIFE.
I learned about LCHF and studied vividly and watched almost all the videos I came across and told my wife that “carb” was the hidden evil in my food and not fat that we feared. I set off immediately on a Low Carb and High Fat diet and did my grocery shopping for March 2015 accordingly. I strictly followed the diet being guided all through by your advice on your website. I have been measuring my blood sugar levels almost regularly and it came down from that high level to an average of 97 mg/dl.
At the end of one month, on 4th of April 2015, my blood pressure was normal and I repeated all my blood tests and the results were a pleasant surprise:
Just one month’s LCHF diet was a huge success to reduce diabetes! I was so happy after 10 long years. Though I know that I have miles to go, but this gave me a great motivation and I now aim to eliminate diabetes. I had trusted your guidance and I was not let down.
Well, I did another blood test for LFT & KFT the next day and fixed an appointment with my doctor for the 7th of April, 2015.
My endocrinologist was very surprised at my sudden improvement. However, I did not disclose to her about the LCHF magic, as I felt she would not understand and rather admonish me for consuming fat. Still, she looked at my markers and said “All looks good. Are you starving, as you lost weight?”
She, however, reduced and changed my blood sugar medicines and said she would further reduce it if my results were still improving after the next 4 months. However, she scolded me for not taking Statins as my LDL was up and said that I must take Rosutec (Rosuvastatin 10 mg) as my arteries are getting scales! Well, I am not listening to her on statins even now, nevertheless.
This is the whole story so far. I was feeling helpless because everyone told me that diabetes is a progressive (towards death) disease with organ failures, but they were so wrong.
I wish to follow LCHF for the rest of my life, even if it is a bit expensive in India. My wife says that she will also follow this diet just to stay healthy and also for the kids. I have stopped giving them “Paediasure” and “Cerelac” and started giving them real food.
My test results along with copy of my prescriptions are attached for your observation. My family photos are attached.
I once again thank you for saving my life. You have actually done a revolution in this world and will save millions of lives from untimely death in the process. I earnestly feel that you certainly deserve the Nobel Prize for your service to mankind. My heartfelt congratulations and best of wishes to you!
Kindly keep in touch.
With best regards,
Congratulations on your fantastic success, Ani!
I wish you all luck, and if you want to send in another report in a few months time that would be fantastic. I’m sure I’m not the only one who would like to hear how you do in the future.
Regarding a Nobel Prize there’s not much chance, as I’m only spreading other people’s ideas. In fact these ideas have been working for hundreds of years already. But thanks anyway!
