“Diabetes Is Not a Chronic Disease”

By Dietdoctor @DietDoctor1

We got an email from Devialini, who's lost a total of 29 kg (64 lbs.), down from 103 kg (227 lbs.) and currently at 74 kg (163 lbs.).

The Story

Here's Devialini's story on how she reversed diabetes and lost weight. The post on her blog contains more information on how she did it, what she ate and the importance of doing your own research.

Someone recently asked me why I would restrict myself so much when "you're going to die anyway". My answer is this:

I do not fancy dying of diabetes related illnesses including heart complications, limb amputation, renal failure and the list goes on. I have no desire whatsoever to suffer the consequences of long term elevated blood sugars and put myself, my family and friends through financial and emotional stress of that kind. I could be involved in a car accident or some such disaster tomorrow. I have no control over those kind of situations but as far as this disease called diabetes is concerned - I now know that it is NOT A CHRONIC DISEASE. It can be reversed and I have control over that. I can do something about it and I choose to. It is about quality of life not quantity of life.


Congratulations on reversing your diabetes, Devialini!
