Imagine my shock, however, when the doctor told me I have diabetes, and my blood sugar was almost 400! Normally it’s supposed to be 80 to 100 after fasting, and not get higher than around 150 after eating. I spent the next couple days trying to adjust to the news and the medicine (metformin), which made me feel really awful! In my follow up appointment I saw a doctor, who is not my regular physician, and he doubled the dose of my medicine, because my blood sugar was still hanging out in the mid 200s. Apparently this doctor forgot that metformin takes a couple weeks to kick in. My regular doctor later told me that he would have started me on about 1/8th of the amount the other doctor did. When I started to take the higher dose my system totally freaked out. Everything I ate went right through me and I felt even worse. I also became dehydrated, which made the blood sugar levels go up even more! At this point I started to wonder if I could manage my disease with my diet, instead of drugs. As it turns out, you can actually reverse Type 2 Diabetes!By making healthy changes to both my diet and lifestyle, my blood sugars are at healthy levels, and I feel great! I lost 8 sizes, and my whole family has benefited from the healthy changes. It also inspired me to start a blog.To learn more about Tiffany and her recipes visit her blog: greatfoodlifestyle.
