I feel sad today. Last night, a friend of mine posted something on Facebook. He said that he was sick, had some infections and such, due to complications with diabetes. I commented on his post and told him that it was possible to reverse diabetes (he is Type 2 like I was) and that if he was interested he should send me a private message. I would be more than willing to help him.
Almost instantly I did get a private message from him, and I told him how I reversed diabetes using a ketogenic diet combined with fasting. He just sent me a “thumbs up” for his reply, nothing more. It made me feel that he probably was not interested.
This morning, I saw on Facebook that he is in the hospital now, he was admitted this morning. He showed pictures of his various infections in different areas on his body, and they did not look good. I used to be like that too. Particularly I would get “diabetic ulcers” on my legs. That is the first step toward amputation.
Speaking of amputation, I got a real wake up call a couple of years ago. One of Feyma‘s cousins had a serious battle with diabetes. She was on kidney dialysis. She had both of her legs amputated! It literally scared the hell out of me and got me very serious about treating my diabetes more seriously.
Sadly, the cousin, Nora, died about a year and a half ago. Seeing her go through dialysis, amputations and finally, death was a real eye-opener for me, and I am happy that I was still able to take control of diabetes and finally eliminate it completely from my life.
That is why I am so sad for my friend who is in the hospital today. I know that he can reverse diabetes. One thing that particularly saddened me was that after I commented on his Facebook post telling him that he could reverse his diabetes, a lot of other people started commenting telling him that I was lying, diabetes cannot be reversed and stuff like that. You know, that is what we have been taught, but the newer ways of approaching diabetes prove that it is not a chronic disease that you just have to live with. It is reversible, and not that hard to take control of.
I wish my friend good luck. I hope he gets over his current problems, and I really hope he takes the bull by the horns and reverses diabetes forever!
