Here is the story of Helena, with great results in the diet of LCHF. Program in Local and Available Online Metabolic Coaching. Join us for our monthly webinar or weekly local courses.
Helena suffered from type 2 diabetes and calcium pyrophosphate deposition disease (CPPD, also known as chondrocalcinosis). Despite three diabetes medications, her blood sugar was out of control. And the pain of his CPPD required that he take painkillers three times a day. Despite all these medicines, he continued to get sick. In fact, she was so sick that her family was discussing her retirement.
Things changed for Helena when she started a low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet (LCHF diet) taught in our course. In one week, his blood sugar level had dropped from 300 to 100. Within three months, his hemoglobin A1c had dropped from 9.7 to 7.4. And his diabetes doctor was stunned and asked if the fourth diabetes drug had caused the change. I was happy to tell her I did not need the 4th medication. Instead, this dramatic change was caused by their low-carbohydrate diet.
The biggest surprise for Helena was that her joint pain due to the disease of calcium pyrophosphate deposition improved slowly and now has almost faded. She went from 3 painkillers a day to 3 painkillers a week. And finally she now takes only 3 pain pills per month.
Now that Helena has blood sugar and pain under control, she has a new chance at life. He is no longer thinking about his retirement, and he is, "expecting 60 more than I expected with 50." Now that's really saying something.
Helena is human. Along the way you have strayed from your new low carb lifestyle from time to time. The results were an almost immediate increase in pain and elevated blood sugar. And these experiences have convinced her that LCHF is not just a "diet", but a long-term lifestyle for her long-term health.
