Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus is reversible‏

I have personally documented over 50 patients in my practice that had type 2 diabetes mellitus that were not only able to control their diabetes and get off their medications, but were also able to totally reverse their diabetes. Now not everyone who has diabetes is able to reverse their disease. However, after firmly establishing the healthy lifestyles promoted in the Healthy for Life Program (, many of my diabetic patients were able to reverse their disease. This was documented by the fact that their fasting blood sugar, glucose tolerance test, and their hemoglobin A1C (a measure of the amount of sugar in a red blood cell) all returned to normal off of all diabetic medication.

Now it took my diabetic patients a minimum of 18 to 24 months on the Healthy for Life Program to accomplish this goal. This gives great hope to so many of my patients who are just becoming diabetic. It allows them to significantly slow down the aging process. Just think what you can do if you firmly establish these new, healthier lifestyles that improve insulin resistance before you become diabetic. I personally believe that the Healthy for Life Program is the answer to the diabetes and obesity epidemics.
