“I was told I was “diabetic” and had to go on drugs to control it”

A normal blood sugar with LCHF in just a couple of days

I just got an email from Mike, who was told he was diabetic and that he had to go on drugs to control it.

However, he chose another path, the LCHF diet path. Here’s his short story:

The Email


I was told after two blood tests that I was “diabetic” and had to go on drugs to control it.

I declined the drugs, bought a blood tester and after the shock of seeing 169 mg/dl (9.4 mmol/l) went on a very low-carb, high-fat diet. 21 days in and I have lost 16 lbs (7 kg) and my BG is normal. See attached trend report.

Very many thanks for your web site.
