No I'm not. I have no connection with Diet Doctor whatsoever.

All the information needed to reverse, I repeat, reverse, type 2 diabetes is there for free. Whether you wish to take out membership is optional (I am not a paying member). Anybody on this site who leads LCHF (low carb, high fat) lifestyle will confirm this.

My motivation is pointing people to dietary change that really works, believing the road to health is not paved with medication.

These questions arise so many times the simplest way to start somebody on their journey to health is to point them to Dr. Eenfeldts site.

If you question my assertion above and are serious about reversing type 2 you should watch Dr. Jason Fung's video series:

The levels have come down because of the Medicine, if you stop it will rise again because these medicines are not curative but just maintain the auger Levels.


Switch to LCHFdiet.You continue these medicine for some time.Gradually get rid of these. If you follow LCHF diet and reduce your gulvus met tab only one time and then

then gradually reduce the medicine in phase wise manner.You will be alright.Thanks


Hi.. Please don't stop using medicines without doctor's permission. Your levels are normal with the help of medicines,diet and exercise. All three are equally important...


As the Doctor says, Its good to continue for few more days, But see that your sugar level does not fall below that figure. If you are regularly exercising, than you should not have a problem. Always check your sugar level.


Do't discontinue immediately ,take some time and replace it by any aurved medicine
