Diabetes Type 1 – going against medical advice changed his life

I loved this story that Andreas highlighted.

It’s great the way P-O was so methodical about his numbers and self care.  His story can help all of us, whether we have diabetes or not.

The points that stick out for me are:

1.   I then decided that the goal should be to keep insulin levels as low as possible and adjust food intake accordingly, and not the other way around, which had been the case during all of my previous years of diabetes.

Isn’t that interesting?  Insulin, as P-O discovered drives hunger.   Get our insulin levels as low as possible and 2 key things happen.  1. You’re not as hungry all the time:)  and 2.  when you do eat you enjoy it more:)! (learning to replace the lost calories with a healthy fats – olive oil, butter and coconut oil on top of grass fed, free range meat and chicken and wild fish).

So how do we get our insulin as low as possible?  Eat less sugar and other carbohydrates that turn to  sugar in our blood.

2.  What has surprised me the most is that if I were a physician/nurse with a patient that had presented with somewhat elevated levels for 10–15 years, and suddenly discovered that levels were now normal at all check-ups; shouldn’t I then be a little curious and ask “What has happened? What have you done?” Nobody has asked me this.

This is actually a sad commentary about the state of unawareness and controlled robotic treatment protocols in modern medicine where an intelligent person can’t be woken up out of their slumber when something that should wake them up, like P-O’s story, just seems to send them deeper into sleep.

Thankfully more of them are and they’re doing their best to wake up their fellow practitioners.

What about you, do you think you’d wake up if you were in their situation?
