Improved health and weight loss story
I was a walking pharmacy...on 4 diabetic drugs plus insulin, blood pressure meds and cholesterol meds. And all those health markers were still off-the-charts bad.
I didn't think I'd live much longer, and frankly, my quality of life was so bad with pain, weakness, fatigue and other complications, I wasn't sure I even wanted to. I thought weight loss surgery was my one and only last chance, and what finally gave me the strength to start fighting back was getting approved for gastric bypass by my insurance, pending submitting proof that I had complied with a 6 month medically supervised weight loss program.
I decided I would low carb for 6 months because I knew it was the one diet that would immediately improve my diabetes, even though I had quit it before because of all the warnings from my doctor of how unhealthy and dangerous it was. Plus, I had never succeeded in losing weight with low carb. I don't know what was different this time, but the weight started to melt off, and my health improved dramatically, and I finally knew I could do this myself.
I now have normal blood sugars, blood pressure and cholesterol and am off all the drugs except for 1000 mg of metformin. My strength and energy have returned... it's just been a miracle really.
