Eshareturi has been able to reverse her type 2 diabetes using only a ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting. Fantastic!

This is what she has to say:

The email

Good morning Dr. Andreas,

In February of this year, the 13th to be precise, I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes with a blood glucose of 267 mg/dl (15 mmol/L). My life changed, I was placed on glucophage twice a day. I took it for two weeks and was supposed to see my doctor but my blood glucose remained at 181 mg/dl (10 mmol/L).

Instead of going to the hospital, I stumbled upon your post on Facebook, got to the Diet Doctor site and asked for a meal plan, which was ketogenic. That was the beginning of my journey.

Six days later, I checked my fasting blood glucose it was 128 mg/dl (7.1 mmol/L), not only that, I was 3 kg (7 lbs) lighter. I was amazed. Two weeks later, I did another test but this time my fasting blood sugar was 145 mg/dl (8.1 mmol/L). I knew I was doing something wrong, that I figured out was my protein intake, I resolved to decrease my protein and add intermittent fasting with a 16:8 window.

At the end of three weeks, my fasting blood sugar was 82 mg/dl (4.5 mmol/L). As of today fasting blood sugar is 75 mg/dl (4.2 mmol/L). I was able to achieve this without drugs, just the keto diet and intermittent fasting.

You have my permission to publish to encourage and save someone, I don’t weigh myself but my clothes are way too big for me, I feel lighter and have more energy. Though my little secret lies in avocado, eggs and coconut oil.

Regards,
Eshareturi
