I just had an email communication with one diabetic who had switched to LCHF diet when I used to post about LCHF diet more than two years back. His name is George Kuttickal who was 77+ years then with 27+ years of diabetic history and horrible blood control and convinced by my experience and what I used to post more than two years back had the courage to switch to LCHF diet.
Someone who has been after me when I used to be here two years back is again trying to engage in useless communication on different forums and posted some "opinion" that LCHF is only for diabetics with 5 or 6 years of diabetes history and younger generation diabetics.
So, I thought of communicating with George Kuttickal today, asking how his health has been and got a reply from him in less than two hrs.
Here's how his reply in response to my email to him today goes:
Many thanks for your query about my health. I am fairly well and will be completing 80 years of my life on the 24th of this month. After living 30 yrs with diabetes I can state, without a trace of doubt, that if anything has helped me to keep my blood sugar levels under control it is LCHF diet. Because of the long history of diabetes I do have CVD and Nuropathy problems, but not too severe. (As you know I came in contact with you and LCHF only in 2013.)
My FBS now remains within the range of 90 - 110 and I take 7 units of Mixtard insulin and 500 mg of Glyciphage morning and evening. Before starting LCHF the FBS was around 180 and PPBS around 320 with higher dose of medicines.
I do sincerely hope that people who suffer from diabetes and its complications will give up their prejudices and try LCHF for themselves and thereby improve the quality of their lives.
May God bless you and keep you. May God shine His countenance upon you and may He be gracious to you. (Numbers 6:24)
So, LCHF diet helps diabetics as old as 80 years with 30 years of diabetic history. All that presumption that it's no good for older diabetics is untrue. I can quote not just one, but many cases like these. Here's the user that I talked of in my post above:
Most of the diabetics on LCHF diet have left this forum only because of attitude of few guys here who consistently try and engage in useless communications with anyone following LCHF diet with the sole objective of having everyone following LCHF diet and benefiting restricted. Even George Kuttickal stopped coming to this forum after I was restricted due to dirty games of few guys here, one of whom is again trying the same old tricks after I have come back.
PS: If administrators here need the mail for verifying the veracity of above post, feel free to let me know and I will forward the email address. (Edited by admin) I have added the screenshot of email after blanking out my email and cell # to avoid spammers getting hold of my mailbox and cell number.
