My Diabetes Story
While this post will be about my diabetes story, I want you to think about how it applies to you. Ask yourself this question, “Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired?”
- Formerly obese
- Formerly drug & insulin dependent
- Since 2009 normal weight, truly normal blood sugars, drug and insulin free.
At diagnosis in 2009 I was an obese, chronically sick, out-of-control diabetic. Since 2009 I have been normal weight, rarely sick and I maintain truly normal blood sugars. My “diabetes story’ has been documented numerous times here’s another longer version, “My Diabetes Story“. More links at the end of this article.
Above is a “Before and After” photo, that pretty much sums up my story, below you will see the health results of my diabetes management regimen. Simply refuse to eat those foods (and drinks) that raise inflammation and spike your blood sugars.
Normal Blood Sugars are THE Key
To optimize life and … living, you need to obtain and maintain truly normal blood sugars.
You can’t do that unless you test your blood sugars regularly. Trying to maintain normal blood sugars without a blood sugar or blood glucose meter is like trying to drive a car at night without the lights on…. very dangerous.
Summary of my Diabetes Story
To summarize my story, I was an obese, chronically sick person when my doctor’s office called an ambulance to rush me to the hospital.
I exited the hospital a broken person. My journey began on diabetes, cholesterol, and hypertension
drugs as well as taking 4 insulin shots per day just to survive.
But within a couple of weeks, things began to change, and within a few months, I WAS A NEW PERSON!
Check out my “before and after” ailment chart below to see the results I received with my diabetes treatment regimen.
