Off and On, I do keep posting success stories that I know of "First hand" and not web scrapped stories. But before I do that, for newcomers, here's the LCHF diet that we follow:
and there are more than 600+ Indians who have had great success to report on LCHF diet, despite 25 to 30 years of diabetic history. 600 is conservative figure, it is definitely more, but I still believe in being conservative. And before I started talking LCHF diet for managing diabetes, I had been on it for almost two great years. I am now into sixth year as a Type 2 diabetic on ZERO drugs actively promoting LCHF diet as a means to drastically cut down dependence on drugs and yet achieve non diabetic numbers -- and here's my little story:
Now onto the case of an Indian diabetic in Australia who clocked the fastest lap time in dropping drugs after going on LCHF diet:
Diabetic since: 2001
First day on LCHF - 29/05/2016
Drugs - 2 Janumet and 1 Glicazie (Max oral dose) -- cost in India could be around Rs 100/day.
Energy levels: Lethargic
We normally give three weeks to transition fully to LCHF. Now he is into third week and here are his details:
As for sugar readings without DRUGS, but on LCHF diet, he has hit numbers that have even surprised him (all non diabetic despite ZERO DRUGS) and he has following to say:
In my entire life span, I had never read this reading on my meter! I had a feeling of being on top of the world. Remember, he is a diabetic with 15 years of diabetic history and not some newly dx'd diabetic.
This is not some isolated case. If anyone needs the link to this case story, shoot me a PM. A post menopausal lady went off 20 units of Insulin a day within the first three months. Will publish her story too some day.
Let the numbers do the talking -- that's what I firmly believe in.
LCHF diets work if followed correctly. If anyone tries to find a mid way path, my suggestion to them is NEVER think of being on LCHF diet. Hyper-responders and those with problems of FH, tough luck. Other than this, even diabetics without gall bladder have gone on LCHF diet and are happy that they did.
To go through other random success cases that I have posted, including that of a Type-1 10 year old girl whose mother is a MD with 11 years experience, just click on my username and go through the list of my posts. Incidently, her mother is also now preaching LCHF, despite being from the mainstream.
