I was diagnosed 11 days ago with a random bs level of 11. My doctor and I agreed that I would have 3 months to turn this around before discussing medications. I immediately got a monitor, went on a 20 hr fast and cleaned out my fridge. The next day I did a 24 hour fast and cleaned out my cupboards. Committed to fasting meant no cheating as I tossed things out. I started eating LCHF and charted what I ate, when I fasted, exercised and my glucose readings. I struggled at first because I did not know what good carbs looked like. I learned they don’t look like apples and oranges…they look more like cauliflower and cucumbers. In that 11 days I have lost 10lbs and my bs has gone from 9s and 8s to 4.9. I have until mid November to continue adapting to this new WOE and I think I am gonna be just fine. I am grateful for this group, the support it offers and for the brave members who post their highs and lows. Thank you one and all.
Amy Thomas You got your A1C down in 11 days? I’m sorry, maybe I’m reading your post wrong.
Suren J Jagai You are amazing. I doubt you will require medication at this rate. I wished I had your kind of discipline.
Sheila R. Pazera What does fasting mean..you eat nothing? How is that good for our level we could bottom out no?
Barb Tait There can be many benefits in fasting for longer than 8 hrs. It must be done safely and knowledgeably and with your physicians approval. Many people do it for extended periods for religious reasons. Fasting past 8 hours means only water to drink and sometimes a little salt under the tongue. I won’t go into depth here but it can be done without harm if done right…. and you eat proper foods to refuel when done the fast.
Wilma Perkey Excellent !!!!
I aspire to your level of success.

My successful Diabetes Treatment Story
My doctor diagnosed me with diabetes just over a year ago, at the time I was prescribed Metformin. I went to the some diabetes related websites and learned about the diet they suggested. I started the diet right away and I was very loyal to it. However, after weeks of being on the diet it never helped, my blood sugar didn’t drop like I wanted it to. My personal physician wasn’t much help either, he didn’t really seem to give me any other options besides my prescription and the usual course of insulin. I was about to give up and then I discovered a great treatment method. The guide was authored by one of the leading professionals in the world of diabetes research, Dr. Max Sidorov. This is a guide that that shows you, in a very simple way, how to conquer the disease without traditional methods. I have to say that since I’ve found the guide and followed it, I’ve not only improved my health but I’ve also lost weight and improved other aspects as well. My activities have increased and I have a ton of energy! It is my goal to share the this diabetes treatment method as much as possible to show people there’s more to the disease than traditional schools of thought and you can find your own path to healing with natural methods.
