My name is Patrick. I’m a 20 year old male and have been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and ulcerative colitis
Hating going to the doctors
I have had diabetes since age 10, and UC since age 18. Being in hospitals and doctors offices is nothing foreign too me and I hated every time I would have to go to the doctor because they would always give me horrible news and follow it up with even worse news. Example: “So you have ulcerative colitis with inflammatory blood markers higher then I have ever seen… this puts you at greater risk for x, y, and z and also you’ll be reliant on dangerous immune-suppressing drugs for your entire life.”
Taking back control with the carnivore diet
So I was willing to try anything to take control of my life back, and possibly avoid the grim image the doctors always paint of people’s lives with autoimmune diseases. So I started the carnivore diet (fatty beef/organs/salt/water) and was absolutely thrilled to reap positive results from it.
No more symptoms
My inflammatory markers (CRP) are back in normal range and I have no ulcerative colitis symptoms! Also my blood sugars are far more stable with virtually no highs.
Getting on with my life
All around my life has changed for the better to say the least and I have the carnivore diet to thank. I love this movement because it goes against what every pompous doctor ever thought was true, and I am looking forward to getting on with my life now, a little better everyday!
