Diet Is The Key
The world we live in has woken up to a health crisis. Diabetes, Obesity, Metabolic Syndrome and PCOS have assumed pandemic proportions. Wrong dietary guidelines from sources we trusted pushed us headlong into a healthcare nightmare. Vested interests following the money trail made sure that people got sick and stayed sick. What started with diet, can only be corrected with diet. Diet is the key. You simply cannot outrun a bad diet – not with hours at the gym, jogging, cycling, walking etc. Eating is a necessity, but eating well, is an art. At dLife.in you will learn the secrets to mastering that art form. Eating less, going hungry and feeling perpetually deprived do not help and do not make for a life well lived. Eat smart: make healthy dietary choices the Low Carb High (or Healthy) Fat – LCHF way and celebrate your way to good health.

Type 2 diabetic since 25 years. Eliminated plethora of drugs like Glimepiride 4.5 mg, Pioz 30 mg and now only on Metformin and manage A1C of 5.6. Initially I was also hesitant to increase saturated fats in my diet, but after lot of interaction with Anup Singh , HSD and Recyan, I increased fats and reduced carbs from diet. This had very remarkable effect on my BS. My FBS comes under 90 & PPBS under 110. Then I realized, importance of Dlife and these members. Otherwise I could have on dialysis or suffer from retinopathy.
I am Dr Sarala, mother of Shalini. My daughter is a Type 1 since the age of 11 months and now 12 years old. For more than two years she is on LCHF and happy to share that her A1C has been in 5.4/5.6 range, I think this forum is very helpful for diabetics in India because Indians are running it. Thanks dlife.in!
I was diagnosed with T2D in January 2009 and am 64 years old. After reading users experiences and success stories on dLife, I was impressed and fully convinced to give LCHF a try. Started following LCHF strictly from May 2016 with full preparation and determination. Transition was smooth and results followed quickly. Within a month PPBS dropped below 140 and soon FBS declined below 100 level. I am fully satisfied and happy with the achievement. All this was possible only because of valuable information, personalized guidance and continuous motivation and inspiration by dLife forum.
Detected diabetic at young age of 29 years, I was disillusioned. After spending countless hours on other sites, fortunately I landed on dLife.in, truly a community of diabetics by Indians for Indians. Community members and moderators are so helpful. It was not a surprise that I dropped my A1C from 9.5 to 6.1 in around two months of joining the community. If you seriously want to tame your diabetes or weight and other issues, I would say just go for it and signup today itself!
Dropped weight from 105 to 87, eliminated 36 units insulin, 100 mg Januvia, 100 mg Invokana, triglimestar and on glycomet only. A1C 5.6 o 5.8 since more than 2 years. Thanks to dLife.in, better health and lot of savings on medications. My entire journey of transformation is on my long intro thread on the forum. It’s long as it runs into 14 pages and the support provided by the community members is something that keeps bringing me back! Content rich forum.
Diabetic since 2001 and settled in the US. Reduced A1C from 9.0 in Aug 2016 to 5.8 currently and was able to cut down metformin dose to half of original. Lost 10 lb weight too and currently only on Metformin. Great to be a part of such a great community!
Reduction in weight from 65kg to 56.5kg, avoiding pioz and yet achieving sub 6 A1C and always full of energy. My story is also in the video section of this site. Have been associated with dLife.in right from early days when it was launched in August 2014.
Type 2 since 19 years. Thanks to dLife.in that I could completely eliminate 70 units/day insulin, twice a day vildagliptin, and once a day cardace. My wt dropped from 90kg to 75kg, MAU dropped from 100 to < 10 and A1C dropped from 9+ to 6.8 with just metformin. I am off from 70 units insulin, cardace and gliptins after 18+ years of Diabetes Type 2 history. I have (had??) been a diabetic for the last 19 years. Feb 20, 2018 I started LCHF. On ketogenic diet now.
My daughter was diagnosed type 1 diabetes 2 years 9 months ago. For 1.5 years, we did not know what are healthy sugar levels. A1C used to be at 8.0 with great struggle and insulin doses were going up leading to unwanted weight gain. dLife.in is such a great community to be a part of. Thanks to dLife.in and Dr Bernstein’s approach that now insulin dose is down to 0.6 of body weight and A1C finally is 5.7 — for the first time in all these years.
