It’s not just a happy moment for the diabetic alone, but the entire family is thrilled to see the family head go off 30 units/day insulin, get off Jalra and just be on the safest oral pill — Metformin. The picture attached to this success story is as sent by Suresh Gulwadi (second from right), a 64 yr Type 2 diabetic from Bangalore, with a diabetes history of 25 years.

Initially, to be exact in May ’18, I was taking insulin 30 units, JALRA 50/500 1-0-1 ,Glycomet GP2 1-0-1, Aztagold. Then I was 69 kgs and waist line 36. As on today I have lost 6 kgs and my waist line 34.
I have tapered down my medication to just Metformin (Cetapin) 1-0-1, off insulin and all harmful medicines. My cost of medication and doctors has come down drastically. Now I am feeling like a 40 Yr, with lot of energy. All these yrs I was living to eat and now carefully eating to live.
Thank you dlife Mentors, looking forward to long term association.
