Hi, We are a nutrition company in Dallas, Texas, United States. Our focus is on treating clients with type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance by using natural approach such as low carb ketogenic diet, exercise, and proper supplementation that helps increase your insulin sensitivity and can lower your hba1c in a long term. This is superior to the use of metformin, glucophage, or any other medicines.
What is a1c?
A hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) test measures the amount of blood sugar (glucose) attached to hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is the part of your red blood cells that carries oxygen from your lungs to the rest of your body.
An HbA1c test may be used to check for diabetes or prediabetes in adults. Prediabetes means your blood sugar levels show you are at risk for getting diabetes. You can actually check your diabetes at home test by using a1c test kit from costco, relion, or bayer a1c now.
For someone who doesn't have diabetes, a normal A1C level is below 5.7 percent. If your A1C level is between 5.7 and 6.4 percent, you have prediabetes (also called impaired fasting glucose), which means you have a high risk of developing diabetes in the future.
Solution for reversing type 2 diabetes
First of all you need to lose weight. Try to do a low calorie diet for at least 3 months at 500 kcal deficit per day. By doing this you will lose around 1 pound per week. Weight loss alone will greatly improve your blood sugar profile. Remember our approach in natural, without any medication such as metformin, Sulfonylureas, etc. In addition you can take some supplements i.e berberine, cinnamon, or green tea to further increase your insulin sensitivity. You can read more about it on ketodope's site on 5 natural metformin alternatives that are safe and effective.
Secondly we use intermittent fasting, in which eating is limited during certain times of the day or week, reportedly helped three middle-aged men with type 2 diabetes lose weight, get off their insulin, and reduce or get off their oral medication.
“The problem is we don’t treat diabetes as a dietary problem; we treat it with a lot of drugs, and that never addresses the root problem of the diabetes,” says principal investigator Jason Fung, MD, a kidney specialist at Scarborough and Rouge Hospital in Toronto, Canada.
The goal is to really have sustained weight loss, and for some, this (intermittent fasting) might be a difficult long-term pattern of eating, which is what one really needs to do for maintaining weight
In the realm of fatty liver disease, which is highly associated with either prediabetes or fully diagnosed type 2 diabetes, we do know that decreased fat and decreased weight are associated with far better glucose control.
