Gillian lost 30kg and came off metformin

Gillian Crowe, 62, is a registered nurse who lives in Northamptonshire. She was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes on June 12th 2017.

Gillian suspected that she had type 2 diabetes after a few weeks with symptoms such as extreme thirst, hot flushes and a frequent need to urinate. Gillian asked her local GP to test her and within days the condition was confirmed. Horrified to be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, Gillian was determined to put the condition into remission.

Gillian chose to ignore the advice she was given by the NHS regarding diet and medication. Since embarking on a low carb healthy fat diet, she has not only lost significant amounts of weight, but her cholesterol and triglyceride levels have returned to normal, without statins. Gillian’s HbA1c came down from 108 to 67 mmol/mol (12 to 8.3%) in September 2017 and in November from 67 to 48 mmol/mol (8.3 to 6.5%)! As a result, Gillian has been able to come off metformin completely.
