Monica talks to Dr. Eva about reversing her Type 2 Diabetes during lockdown

, , ,

“Obesity increases risk of COVID-19 death by 48%, the risk of ending up in hospital by 113% and the likelihood of admission to an Intensive Care Unit by 74%”. Pick up today’s Farmer’s Journal to read more on this and empower yourself to losing weight from Monica’s story. Obesity is a risk factor that you can do something about, unlike your age or gender. This topic of excess weight causing illness is still a taboo in Ireland and should not be so. As a nation we are trusting our health in the hands of the doctors and while some encourage their patients to take personal responsibility and action to lose weight- like Monica’s GP- many prescribe medications when the first line of action should be dietary and lifestyle changes. Us as taxpayers are paying for often unnecessary medications for mainly lifestyle related conditions such as type 2 diabetes, and those taking them suffer the side effects, both physical and mental. Our amazing Monica came to see us just a few days before lockdown in March, after being newly diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. She did the whole diet via digital consultations with our team as our clinics were solely operating digitally until restrictions lifted, and she’s now reversed her type 2 diabetes after losing just over 3 stone!

Denis Reversed his Type 2 Diabetes

,

November 14th is World Diabetes Day. Watch this video of how Denis reversed his Type 2 diabetes with our diet!

 

Type 2 Diabetes is officially reversed when the HbA1c (measuring the 3 month average blood glucose levels) stays within the non-diabetic range after people re-introduce carbohydrates into their diet. Denis has now, a year after his Very Low Calorie Ketogenic Diet (VLCKD) weight loss programme with us, still remained within the non-diabetic HbA1c range while now eating a broad range of ordinary foods! Watch his inspiring video below.

Achieve huge benefits with a small change- how Peggy reversed her type 2 diabetes losing only 12 lbs!

, ,

Peggy’s story is a great example of how you can have type 2 diabetes without knowing it, and how we need to change our approach from treating the symptom (high blood sugar) to treating the most typical cause – excess waistline fat. It is a well know fact that insulin resistance “lives” in the excess visceral fat, but many doctors are vary of stepping outside the practice guidelines and often more vary of getting their clients to step on the weighing scales or use a measuring tape to check for excess waistline! Similar to most newly diagnosed type 2 diabetics, Peggy was immediately administered three different medications; for lowering her blood sugars, cholesterol and blood pressure. She was shocked by her blood results as she had been feeling fine and had not been experiencing any of the typical symptoms of high blood sugars. Sadly, her weight or waistline was not checked, and she was not given any lifestyle or dietary advice.

These medications made Peggy feel very unwell. She hadn’t been taking any medications prior to all this, but when she complained about feeling unwell on her medications, she was told that she had no option but to take them. Two months later at her Diabetic clinic visit, she was given two more medications to lower her three month average of blood sugar reading (HbA1c). At no point was Peggy advised that she could reverse her condition by losing weight.

Several well known medical professionals around the world are changing their views on the treatment of type 2 diabetes. We don’t live in the dark ages anymore, and anyone who has access to the internet knows that type 2 diabetes can be reversed. I have had people with type 2 diabetes coming to me after their GP has said that they could reverse their condition, but most commonly they have heard about this from somewhere else themselves. As a medical doctor I am very aware that we can’t keep up with every new protocol for every condition, but we have an absolute crisis in our hands with the type 2 diabetes epidemic and have a responsibility in patient care to prevent it from getting worse! The most researched, efficient and simplest dietary treatment available to reverse type 2 diabetes seems to be the Very Low Calorie Ketogenic Diet, which is what we use in our clinics. The quick initial weight loss seems to make the body response to insulin again, and after a while, people can return to a normal healthy diet. Peggy found this diet easy to follow, and she felt that it empowered her to think differently about food.

Some people don’t even need to lose a lot of weight to achieve type 2 diabetes reversal. Peggy carried no excess weight anywhere else in her body except on her waistline, and now after losing just 12 lbs and 9cm off her waist, she has reversed her type 2 diabetes and is not taking any medications. Her HbA1c is now within non-diabetic range without medication, and her home glucose readings remain stable. Peggy feels well and healthy. She has been able to return to eating a balanced diet with the odd treat, without having her previous need for sweets and chocolate. Most importantly, she has maintained her weight loss and feels that she has improved her quality of life!

It is now estimated that up to 150 000 Irish people are unaware of having type 2 diabetes as they are not experiencing any symptoms. You can assess the most obvious risk factor for insulin resistance at home with a simple inexpensive tool- waistline measuring tape. First, measure your height in centimeters. Then divide this in two. Next, measure your waistline at the point of your navel (belly button) in centimetres. Your waistline should be less than half of your height. So for example, if you are 165cm tall, your waistline should be under 83cm. Should you have any excess centimetres, these can predispose you to a number of chronic health conditions, including type 2 diabetes. Each excess centimeter represents an excess of 1kg (2.2lbs).
