Can you reverse your type 2 diabetes in only five months? The answer is a clear yes if you ask Mike!
Not only has his blood sugars normalized since June this year when he started a keto diet, he also feels much better and has lost 24 lbs (11 kg)!
Here’s his experience in his own words:
Around my 76th birthday in June 2019, I started keto. To date (November 2019) I have lost 24 pounds (11 kg). I feel fitter and look better than I have for a very long while.
My wife started me on it and I thought “why not?”. I have nothing to lose but weight! And if it could also help my blood sugar levels I would give it a go. And I’m glad I did.
My blood sugar has plummeted and I have pretty much reversed my type 2 diabetes. The diabetes practitioner at the local surgery is very impressed and said the next review in January would confirm this if I continued on the current path – which I intend to do.
There are a few foods that I miss, but more than compensated for now, since I can eat – and enjoy – most of the foods that were previously avoided.
Once I got used to the idea that there is no such thing as essential carbs – pretty quickly – I found that I needed less food to satisfy my hunger.
Thanks for sharing your story, Mike. Congrats on reversing your diabetes! That is an incredible step for future health. Keep up the great work.
