Heres an article from a recent newsletter written by Dr Mark Hyman
Diabetes sucks!”
Those were the first words out of Janet’s mouth when I met her in my office. I was a little surprised, but soon I completely understood her frustration.
At the age of 56, Janet was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
After several years of deprivation, eating like a rabbit and “sticking” herself with a blood sugar measurement device several times a day, Janet was frustrated when her doctor said she’d “have this disease forever.”
Tired of just treating her symptoms with medication, Janet wanted to learn if there was another way to eliminate her diabetes.
Janet is not an isolated case — anyone with type 2 diabetes will tell you that diabetes management is a ridiculous daily hassle full of frustration…almost like a prison sentence.
The past few years had been roads lined with hard, frustrating lessons, mostly because Janet, like most with type 2 diabetes, was following outdated conventional medical thinking.
One morning, Janet’s frustration turned to panic when she woke up and found her left hand and right foot numb. The pain, she said, felt like “static electricity.”
Everyone with diabetes fears neuropathy (nerve damage) and knows it may lead to amputation. However, what most people miss is that diabetes ALSO exponentially increases your risk for developing dementia, cancer and stroke.
The threat of amputation was too much for Janet...she knew something HAD to change.
That’s when Janet came to see me — discouraged, depressed and afraid to eat anything.
I told Janet that if she did everything I suggested she would lose weight and feel better and most, if not all, of her symptoms would go away. She left my office somewhat skeptical but enthusiastic and determined.
Three months later, Janet had lost 18 pounds and had enough energy to play ball with her 7-year-old grandson without losing her breath. Her legs were no longer swollen and she was able to go dancing with her husband without breaking into an embarrassing sweat.
After eight months, her A1c had dropped consistently below 6 (down from 10.1 when I met her), all her cravings were gone, her HDL and LDL cholesterol and triglycerides were normal (without medication) and she had lost a total of 28 pounds.
Ten months later Janet and her husband went on a 12 day Hawaiian vacation to celebrate their 35th wedding anniversary — Janet was feeling so good she brought her dancing shoes and bought a new swimsuit!
After years of fear, frustration and deprivation, Janet finally found balance and health and took pleasure in food again.
Her thyroid returned to normal and all of her chronic ailments disappeared, but most importantly, her diagnosis of type 2 diabetes was reversed and she felt 20 years younger.
Janet's situation is an increasingly common one that I see.
So what did Janet do?
How did she turn back the clock, reclaim a normal life full of joy and happiness and regain the energy and vitality she once had?
It's something remarkably simple based on common sense.

To your good health,
Mark Hyman, M.D.
PS - Janet's frustrations were in part caused by the lack of coordination among the various doctors she was seeing simultaneously for seemingly different health problems.
Her doctors were asking all of the WRONG questions...making matter worse, none of the doctors were talking to each other, missing out on an opportunity to identify the obvious common problems that I saw.  Once you identify these core common problems, the rest is easy and its something ANYONE can take advantage of.
