Dr. Krishnaveni is an Associate Professor with a specialization in Nuclear Physics.
During the course of her LCHF journey, she posted a short testimonial also: Member Testimonial – Krishnaveni.
Stating summarily, she dropped Glimepiride, and switched to just Metformin within the first few weeks of LCHF. On 16th August 2018, she posted two medical reports, pre-LCHF and post-LCHF. Here is the link to that thread:
The comparison of the two reports we leave for the users themselves to see. Along the course of her journey, she dropped weight by 8Kg, without any attempt to count calories or starve. True to being a professor from the science stream, she has patiently soaked all the information and discussions on the forum (while interacting less), put it into practice, and dropped her fasting insulin, triglycerides and A1C, while improving her kidney function, hsCRP and other things. Check on the above link for the two detailed medical tests reports.
We are sure that just as she dropped her A1C from 7.2 to 6.3, despite eliminating Glimepiride and only relying on Metformin, she will achieve an A1C of 5.6 max. going forward! Getting rid of Glimepiride is a great achievement, as that means no more torturing the pancreas to produce more insulin.
