Well dear readers, I’ve got great news! Mike saw his doctor and got the results of his A1c test. Now if you remember, we discovered he was diabetic in late June 2014. Praying a lot and wondering what we would do, we stumbled upon a book that encourages diabetics to try to reverse the disease. Mike absolutely did not want to start taking chemicals to control his diabetes, and saw following the guidelines in this book as his chance at reversing his disease.
Mike’s A1c in early July 2014 was 10.2. Today his A1c is 5.0. Wow! Anything under 5.7 is considered a normal.
To accomplish this Mike eats a low carb diet, and low very or no sugar. He also tries to exercise several times a week. You can read about the supplements he takes here. You can see the chart we created that show his blood sugar readings when he started (283) to what his blood sugar readings are now (80 – 90) here. The program Mike is following is on an earlier post here.
His Dr. said, (and I paraphrase) “To be honest with you, I didn’t think you could do it. But you’ve showed me otherwise.” And then he shook his hand. Yesterday was a great day. Now our plan is to let his liver and pancreas rest so they can restore and rejuvenate themselves.
