Reversing Diabetes – 2 Month Update

It’s been almost 2 months since I stopped taking my Type 2 Diabetes medicine and brought my blood sugar measurements within the ‘normal’ range and I’d like to provide an update.

I’m happy to report that my fasting (pre-breakfast) blood sugar measurements are still in the high normal range of 90-100 mg/dL!

morning blood sugar

You see the steep drop off in my fasting blood sugar measurements starting when I started my diet and then the measurements rise and level off as I increased my daily caloric intake from 800 calories to around 2,200 calories.

Here are some more graphs showing my progress and the correlation (although somewhat weak) between daily carbohydrate intake and my morning blood sugar measurement.

bedtime blood sugar vs carbs

blood sugar vs carbsSo what is my main take-away from the past two months?

Limit My Carbohydrates

I limit my daily intake of carbohydrates to around 65 grams per day and around 40 net carbs per day (subtracting those carbs from fiber which are slowly digested and don’t spike my blood sugar).  Carbs are my worst enemy with regard to my Type 2 Diabetes so I’ve had to cut out my old favorites – bread, rice, grits, biscuits, bread, potatoes and tortillas.

I don’t eat sweets so those carbs were easy to eliminate but cutting out high carb foods was tough but not near as bad as I had thought.  When I tell my story to people they ask me how I was able to do it (“My God, I could never stop eating <insert food here>”) but this is how I see it.

When a person with Type 2 Diabetes is facing the end of life and is in a hospital waiting for the doctor to amputate a foot or coming to terms with the fact that they are going blind or suffering from heart disease I wonder what thoughts go through their mind.  Do they think about how wonderful it was to eat that pasta, grits or biscuits?  Or do they wish they had a few more years to watch their kids graduate from college?  Do they wish for a little more time to walk their daughter down the aisle?

For me, I found it very easy to give up some of the foods I love if it means I die from something other than complications caused by Type 2 Diabetes.  I have made this lifestyle change not only for myself but for my wife and kids as well.  I can’t change my DNA and I have Type 2 Diabetes because of my genetics but being here for my family is the most important thing I can do and that trumps any pleasure I may receive from eating a meal that I know will do damage to my body.

ADDENDUM – The spreadsheet showing my full data as well as details of meals can be found here –>  diabetes reversal.

  1. Brother, I don’t know you personally, just from your blog. That being said I am very proud of your progress and fer plan. When I realized I had PTSD and anxiety issues the doctors wanted to pump me full of meds (I know this is not tbe same as diabetes) after reviewing the long term effects and dependence on these meds I decided to decline taking them and worked instead on diet with the help of my wife. I have been off all meds fer A LONG time now and functioning quite normally. I give the glory to God fer helping me and I pray fer you as well . God bless you friend.

  2. Congratulations! Here’s to a healthier you. Cheers!
