How to reverse type 2 diabetes – the video course!

Here’s a real treat, something we’re very proud of. The first part in the series How to Reverse Diabetes Type 2, our new video course with Dr. Jason Fung.

Can type 2 diabetes be reversed? Sure – it’s a completely reversible disease. But amazingly it’s usually treated as if it is a chronic disease that should get worse with time – with insulin and other drugs for life.

The result? Short term complications (like further weight gain) and long term complications (like amputations and dialysis). Misery.

There is a better way. The disease can be reversed with a proper dietary change. There’s already lots of free information at Diet Doctor on how to do it. But in this video guide we make it as simple as possible – even entertaining – to quickly learn everything you need.

Watch the first part above. The rest of the course, and much else, is available for members (). Watch it here:

    I'm a 49 year old menopausal women who is overweight. My insulin levels are at 17 and Yes I have insulin resistance but I'm not on medication. I've dropped my A1C down from 6.7 to 6.4 since last year. I'm due for a new test soon. I've dropped 10 pounds but I'm still at 309 pounds. I get frustrated because I've tried changing my diet and my husband is the one losing weight. I do not understand the Keto Diet much less intermittent fasting. I've tried to fast but wonder if I'm doing it right.

    Tammy:

    Search Google for "Valter Longo" and his "Fasting Mimicking Diet." I'd also suggest searching for his interview with Ari Whitten and listen/read about the Fasting Mimicking Diet and their views on "Nutritional Ketosis" diets.

    Good luck.

    I'm sorry, that does sound frustrating. You may wish to try a reset using our two week challenge. If your A1C has gone up that much, something is definitely going on. Please work with your doctor to see if you need to adjust the dosage of any of your medication.

    I have a question. I am Type II Diabetic and I am on two metformin at night. I started doing Ketogenic and lost 5 pounds so far. I am not in Ketosis and I am trying to limit my carbs to under 50 a day. I noticed my morning blood sugars have been very high like 190 range. What am I doing wrong? I also noticed after I eat chicken and veggies I took my blood sugar two hours after and my blood sugar is 149. Very strange to me why this occurs. I want to get off of my medicine. I have tried some 16 hour fast and 12 hour fast, but it seems like my morning sugars do not go down. I'm so confused please help.

    Dear Doctor,

    If a diabetic patient just done his angioplasty, while taking his angio and diabetes medication, can he start this IDM?
