Can diabetes be reversed? It is a common question that is asked by seniors when they get the diagnosis. And while at first it might seem incredible, the answer is yes.
Diabetes is reversible.
So what I am going to do is explain what you need to do to regain control of your health, WITH THE COOPERATION OF YOUR DOCTOR.
Note: if anything that I am saying here conflicts with your doctor…please listen to your doctor…not me.
The positive answer to the question, “can diabetes be reversed” was first revealed in a study done by the University of Newcastle in the UK.
In the study, 11 individuals who were Type-2 diabetics were put on an EXTREMELY low calorie diet…600 calories a day…for 8 weeks.
Now, this is an extremely low calorie consumption level and the study participants were obviously living off of their stored excess body fat (all were overweight when the study was started).
Three months after the study, 7 of the 11 were free from the effects of diabetes, and the other 4 had reduced symptoms.
Here are the particulars on the diet and the results…
Now, what can we take away from this…
1) This diet was medically supervised and approved throughout
2) It was the loss of fat in general, and in particular around the liver and pancreas, that led to the successof reversing diabetes
Unless you are under clear medical supervision no one in their right mind would recommend you consuming only 600 calories daily.
However, I personally believe if you took the approach that I did when I was reversing my own heart disease symptoms that you would probably end up with similar success.
I am not going to repeat myself here, but you can read that article here.
Also, just in case you are saying that when I did this I was younger, I would like you to read the story of Constance Tillet, who at 77-years old took up Crossfit.
She had never exercised in her life. But after making the decision to take control of her health started a Crossfit regimen and weaned herself off of 60 pills a day plus insulin injections 4 times a day for her diabetes.
I can only imagine how much money she is saving off of her prescription drugs costs.
