After a year of changing my diet, I weigh 53kg less, ejection fraction is 54, HbA1C 5.9%, from 9,1% in February 2015, total cholesterol is 5mmol/l, blood pressure 115/72 without blood pressure medicine…
When I started fasting and saw how quickly the weight was coming off, I made a goal to lose 100 pounds in 2015. I met that goal in September.
I lost 12 lbs. the first month and then 6 lbs. per month thereafter for a total of 30 lbs. going from 256 to 226 in 4 months…I can confidently say I beat diabetes and prediabetes in 4 months.

S/he should provide instruction with regards to any necessary changes to medications while undergoing dietary changes. The IDM provides dietary guidance only and takes no responsibility for any medical decisions. That discussion is between your physician and yourself.
