pre-diabetic for about four years now.
Joe is taking oral medications only. He has not had to go the route of insulin shots, thank God for him.
Have a look at Joe’s BEFORE
chart going back to 2007 – Blood Sugar Levels:
A Blood Sugar “Normal Range” is 90 to 110 give or take…
About May of 2009 in addition to his Metformin, Glipizide was added (1 twice a day) to try and bring down his levels. It worked – but it caused his levels to drop too low, so he had to back off the dosage.
Glipizide 1 tablet twice a day was added to the Metformin to bring his levels down.
Then Joe decided to go on program. He started Sunday September 20th, 2009.
About a week after he started losing weight he checked his blood sugar levels.
They had dropped into a “Normal” range.
Now, just finishing his 3rd week his blood sugars are in the 90’s. Joe shared with me that he had not taken either of his medications this past Sunday and his sugars tested 97 in the morning and 90 in the evening. Joe is doing great and his doctor is happy too.
His Blood Sugars are testing Normal!
