D Y Kulkarni‘s history of Type 2 diabetes started in 2005. Along the way, his numbers kept increasing, despite all the medications he was on. Yet another case to prove how horrible High Carb Low Fat diet is for managing diabetes. The bigger surprise came in April 2017 when his health check up returned an HBA1C of 10.8%. And, the doctor suggested him to go on insulin. That was a wake up call! He decided to look for alternatives for reversing his diabetes.
There are a host of articles on reversing diabetes and the strategies to be looked at, and they are:
- The Art Of Substitution On LCHF & Keto Diet
- How To Successfully Reverse & Manage Diabetes On Low-carb LCHF Keto Diet
- Freedom from Diabetes On Indian Low Carb LCHF & Keto Diet
- Blue Ocean Strategy for Reversing Diabetes
- Inspiration from the Four Noble Truths for Reversing Diabetes
So, Indian LCHF diet was the obvious way forward. Getting over the initial inertia is what everyone is worried about, and this is what he had to say on his success story thread posted recently:
So while going across internet found group Dlife & Anup Singh where all were discussing the same issues with their success stories with LCHF and motivating all. This increased my interest in finding the root cause and read lot of articles on IF, LCHF, impact of eating frequency etc. It was not easy to change the diet immediately which was following for so many years. However looking at success stories of others decided to give a try.
Despite following LCHF diet half-heartedly, his A1C came crashing down from 10.8% to 6.0% in five months. Obviously, he was able to avoid insulin that his doctor was forcing on him when his A1C clocked 10.8%. Now, he has added intermittent fasting to his schedule, and hopes to hit the magical A1C of 5.6% max., going forward.
Congratulations D Y Kulkarni!
