Welcome to my site, I hope you find the information helpful in your quest to deal with diabetes
In 2012, after my regular annual checkup, I received a call from my doctor’s office informing me she wanted to see me immediately – That afternoon!
That sounded rather ominous to me, so I did go to my doctor’s office that afternoon. For the first time ever, I was ushered into her office with no wait and she came in, sat at her desk, looked at me with worry in her eyes and told me, “Shaun, I received your blood tests back and I don’t understand why you are still walking around. I have never seen results like these for any patient who was not already in a coma or dead.”
Needless to say, that scared me enough to listen – My A1C was over 14 and my cholesterol was off the charts with a triglyceride reading of over 1900. I started taking the medication as prescribed, started exercising and changed my diet.
Within six months, my blood tests showed my blood sugar and cholesterol under control, but I still had to keep taking medication.
Five years later, my new doctor called me in to tell me he thinks me kidneys are failing because of all the meds. Further tests showed I would need to start dialysis treatment soon.
I had been reading a great deal about diabetes and found many doctors saying that proper diet was the best way to reverse type 2 diabetes. I stopped all my medications and started following a special diet my wife prescribed based on the cookbooks she has been reading.
Following my wife’s orders, I have maintained control of both my blood sugar and cholesterol and my kidneys have recovered and tested normal. I also lost 40 pounds in six months.
WHY I WANT TO HELP PEOPLE
I decided I would really like to help point people like me in the right direction.
I do believe doctors are more intelligent than those of us who are not, but Western medicine seems to be more geared to help with the symptoms of our medical issues with very little thought towards actually curing the problem.
As a Christian, I believe it is our job to help each other
THE GOAL OF MY SITE
I hope to help to point other diabetes sufferers to cookbooks and recipes that can help reverse their medical issues just as the correct foods has helped me.
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
