The most amazing thing about Ken’s story is that he managed this without any expensive pills or medication. It was all diet and lifestyle changes! – Dr. Perlmutter
At age 62, I was diagnosed with severe type 2 diabetes. I was told I would always be a diabetic and would need to be on medication for the rest of my life. At the time, my fasting blood glucose was 220 and I weighed 185 lbs. (I am 5’11”).
After researching lifestyle options, I embarked on a high healthy fat/low-carb diet with supplementation of Vitamins D and K2, and gut improvements with probiotics and homemade fermented vegetables. Today, at 64, my fasting blood sugar is 72 and I weigh 159 lbs. That’s nearly 30 lbs. lost! I am probably in the best shape I’ve managed in the past 30 years. This was achieved with absolutely no medication whatsoever, and I couldn’t be happier.
