I am running out of meds (Janumet, insulin) so I needed to get a blood test done before returning to see my GP.
As a last ditch effort, I took a friend’s advice and googled for GPs in Melbourne who were nutritionists and shared my eating principles. My current GP is rather traditional and the first one I’ve managed to stick with consistently.
The visit with the new GP was not like all the docos I’ve seen. He did not immediately take charge of my case and try to revolutionise my life ?.
I was disappointed. His website is great and I got a lot of good info off it.
In the mean time, the thought of getting harangued by my regular GP was just too stressful, so… I went raw to dupe the results.
This is the first time I’ve gone raw on meds, and constantly monitored my results. It’s also the first time in years that I’ve seen a 5 in the blood sugar results pane.
It was comforting.
I drastically reduced my insulin intake, did a bit of research and attempted a split double dose of my long acting insulin (levemir) which has worked amazingly well. A week into the detox, I cut out the morning dose of insulin.
i juiced raw Indian bitter melon/gourd (Karela) and drank a tablespoon or so at a time. My sugar dropped by one point in half an hour ?. It was akin to taking insulin. Of course it tastes horrendous. But worth it I think!
