Patient reverses type 2 diabetes in 38 days – by cutting out carbs


Is it possible to reverse one’s type 2 diabetes – without the use of medicine – by just cutting out carbs? Absolutely. That’s exactly what this patient of Dr. David Unwin’s did in just 38 days.

This is just yet another example of the fact that type 2 diabetes can be reversed by changing lifestyle and eating habits.

Do you know of anyone who has reversed their diabetes with a low-carb diet?

    How do you account for people like these families who eat very high carb but have virtually none of the "metabolic" disorders, with perhaps one exception among hundreds, who are not gluten or grain sensitive, overweight or unhealthy appearing? This is a serious question.

    I've been doing this diet for nearly 3 years; I still take the lowest dose of med. I had mornings of 158 and now 115. I am not seeing the big improvements like those you are reporting. I expected to be registering "normal". I have tried the strictest carb restrictions and a looser version with the same results. Granted, my numbers are not "bad" but I was really hoping for better. I have also implemented a version of overnight fasting. I eat nothing after 9pm and nothing till 1pm the next day. Same numbers.

    Short fasts aren't always powerful enough, 36 or 72 hours makes a difference.

    Probably because they eat whole food, very little processing.

    That seems to be true Tim, but nevertheless it's a very high carb/flour/sugar diet. Confounding. No one is overweight, including old people and children.

    I don't know about people who eat carbs and don't have diabetes but for me I started eating low carb and eventually was taken off insulin and my numbers are very low without meds and normal with meds. I believe that over time the pills will be unnecessary. It works for me! I also lost a total of 30pds so far.

    Not ignoring that at all Kassy, for diabetes control. They eat the way they do but don't seem to get diabetes, if we acknowledge diabetes is something we get from carb/sugar over- consumption. It's very puzzling when you scroll through the recipes there, and see, yes, they make their own everything, but heavy on bread/carb products and eat them everyday, every meal. The only other thing I know from years of reading there, is they practise strict portion control (but eat *everything* check out the number of recipes for sugary buns etc). One wrote somewhere there they follow saying "I have (had) enough" so others may also have some. Laudable philosophy and practise, but still doesn't answer the carb question.

    Much more physical labour practiced by the Mennonites and Amish would seem to say to me that the sugars are mostly burnt as energy, thereby reducing the sustained level of insulin. Without a sustained level of insulin, insulin resistance would have much less chance of developing.

    gbl: Interesting recipes. How do you know that "these families who eat very high carb". If you see the recipes for meals:
    Meat and Poultry
    Main Dishes

    didn't seem high carb to me. Plenty of vegetables, beef, porc, birds, butter, cream, fish, bacon...
    Except for the pasta and some other recipes I don't see "heavy on bread/carb" "every day"... and "every meal"?
    I don't think they were eating the at every meal.
    Do you have some links to what the familes of these ten ladies eat every day? I like to see them.
    And where are the data that ""...have virtually none of the "metabolic" disorders""
    I mean that the site is new to me, and don't know where that information came from, not that it is not so...

    Protein can be interesting. A variation in 10grams a day is enough to stop weight loss for me. I use Dr Fungs recommendation to work out my protein. .6 g x lean weight. 54 grams.

    I have been on LCHF for over a year now and recently 'progressed' to Ketogenic-LCHF. I had early success in lowering my fasting glucose levels to less than 5.8 but now find it difficult to maintain that over periods longer than a week or so. It seems if I stray even a bit from a 20-30g daily carb intake with a 80-15-5 % fat-protein-carb calories profile, I get one or more days in the 6-7 range.

    I have come across articles about the value of adding resistant starch but my initial foray (a teaspoon of potato starch at breakfast and lunch for two days put me at 6.4+ for a day or two) inspired me to look into it further.

    The Fat Head website (by Tom Naughton) had a good deal to say about how to use resistant starch and included a set of interviews ( was particularly interesting) with contributions from Tom,and Richard Nikoley who runs the site Nikoley is abrasive but he provides evidence that the Inuit do not have a ketosis diet and in fact get normal amounts of carbs (100+g per day) in diets heavy in liver and raw meat ( and staying insulin resistant as well. As he highlights in The Fat Head interview: (To Reiterate, Just In Case You Missed It: No Elevated Ketone Levels in the Inuit).
