D. G.loses weight and improves health on a carnivore diet

Share This Post

I am a 72 year old male. I’ve had Type 2 diabetes for over 20 years. I have taken various oral medications to try to control my blood glucose level. Back in early July I had a blood draw at my doctors and my A1C level was 7.5. At the time I was on the generic of Actos and the maximum daily dose of Metformin. My doctor wanted to prescribe a third diabetes medication, but I told him that I would try to “eat better”. I’ve done numerous diets in the past and had some success; but usually regained some of the weight over time. I saw a reference to the Carnivore Diet on a forum that I frequent. After struggling with another attempt at a low fat/low calorie diet I researched the Carnivore Diet and decided to do a 45 day test.

In mid-August I started the Carnivore Diet, but included coffee, eggs and some cheese. At day 56 (8 weeks) eating Carnivore I again had a blood draw. On my own I had eliminated the generic Actos and reduced my Metformin by 50%. When I told my doc this I could tell he was not pleased that I had done this on my own, but I did provide him with daily fasting glucose and blood pressure readings to support what I had done.

After 56 days, my weight had gone down by almost 19 pounds and body fat % down 4.8% (per my “smart” scale). My doc call the next day and told me that my A1C was 5.9 and to further reduce my Metformin dosage by another 50%. He sounded amazed/impressed when he informed me of the new A1C measurement.
