A couple of years before I retired, I received a Pre-Diabetic-Type II diagnosis warning; and was told by my physician that I needed to modify my diet and lifestyle significantly, if I wanted to stave off a full-fledged, Diabetes Type II condition in the future.
At the time, I was exercising five days a week, but was still overweight, tipping the scale at 240 lbs.; which was more than my 5’10” frame was meant to carry.
While I did commit to modifying my diet and lifestyle for the better, and I was successful in dropping 50 pounds; my A1-C levels still rose steadily over time.
Early in the process, my physician had prescribed Metformin, but I opted not to take it, because I was more interested in restoring my health than I was in treating my condition.
Unfortunately, six months later, I was sporting an A1-C level of 11, and my doctor was clearly alarmed. She said that I needed to take the Metformin she had prescribed, and that if I did not, she was afraid I would experience a heart attack, stroke, or worse.
Still not convinced that Metformin was the right solution, I vowed to get more serious about improving my diet and lifestyle, but in the back of my mind, I feared those changes were not going to significantly improve my A1-C average.
My wife remembered hearing Wayne Garland relate an account of a diabetic that had not only been able to avoid the amputation of his gangrenous leg, but had so improved his heath that he’d since been able to obtain his pilot’s license after taking one of his formulations (specifically, ‘DiaBesity’).
I urged her to order some right away, because I was scheduled to have another A1-C lab test in less than a month, and I was desperate to reduce my numbers.
The product arrived a few days later, and I began taking 2 capsules twice a day, with meals, without fail.
By the time my next lab work appointment rolled around (a mere 3-1/2 weeks later) and the time came to review the lab report with my doctor later that same day, (something I had been seriously dreading), I was shocked to find that she was all smiles and said she could NOT believe the numbers she was seeing.
Not only had my A1-C level gone down to a 6, but my Cholesterol and Triglyceride levels were well within the ‘normal’ range, and all of my other numbers looked great, too.
When she began to congratulate me on the decision I’d made to start taking the Metformin, I politely (and respectfully) informed her that I had not, in fact, been taking it. (I so wish you could have seen the look on her face, Wayne Garland!) At first, she didn’t believe me … and I had to repeat myself several times before I finally convinced her that I was telling the truth.
She ultimately asked what I had been doing, and I attributed the improvement to “wine, women and song”, but she just laughed and threw her hands up in the air!
I typically don’t share the natural products I take with my doctors, because it just seems like a lost cause. I am telling everyone else I know about my experience though, and I just thought you’d like to know! (wink)
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
