How Tammy and Steve Regained Their Health

How Tammy and Steve regained their health

After being diagnosed with several health issues, Tammy found the keto diet and got her husband on board to try it. This is their story:

Keto for life...literally!

I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, fatty liver and high blood pressure in June 2015. My HbA1c was 8.0 at the time. I immediately started reading anything I could find about diabetes. I started LCHF a couple of weeks later. When I went back for my three-month visit with the doctor I had dropped my HbA1c to 5.1! I did not use medications, just changed my eating lifestyle.

My husband and I have lost around 90 lbs (40 kg) between the two of us and regained our health. I am now 52 years old and obtained certifications to coach ketogenic and LCHF eating.

That's great Tammy and Steve! Congratulations. Dropping in A1c from 8 to 5.1 is amazingly good, and should drastically improve the chances of a long and healthy life.
