Just registered in for the first time on this site. I am a 65 yr old female who one year ago was on the brink of diabetes. I was lucky my brother told me about this diet and within literally 12 weeks I was no longer diabetic and a stone and a half lighter. Just been to Dr tonight and been told levels still dropping, even though I dip in and out of the diet, but keep to the diet for 6 weeks at a time periodically.
My total delight was finding a newsletter on the reception desk tonight at the Dr asking people if they were interested in weight loss or controlling T2. I read this to find it named and directed patients to the BSD! They also run surgeries to those who want to join in. When I mention this to GP she told me I was one of the first successes for them and they now have several. How great for Drs to now promote this and spread the word. So here I am, still walking up to 20 km a week and although I am naughty occasionally, I have it under control and the best I have been for years health wise.
I consider myself lucky that my Dr told me she wanted me to diet and get diabetes under control, instead of just putting my on meds and giving me a talk about cutting down On sugar. Many people I know have had that response and never known they CAN control it.
So I am signed off for a year now before my next check up and can’t believe how lucky I am. My dad had diabetes so bad he had no feeling in his feet! I wish people knew years ago how to control it!
Dr says that anyone with T2, no matter how long they have had it should try this diet, it will change your life. I know it will always be an on going lifestyle now, but you do feel so much better and very proud of your accomplishment.
Thanks Dr M, so pleased I can be healthy, you have made an Essex girl very happy, I expect that’s a first!
