Treatment for Diabetes

Before I get into diabetes treatments and diabetes cures, I want to explain that I’m not a doctor. I’m not a dietician, a nurse, or even a member of the healthcare community. In fact, I’m a retired teacher. With that revealed, why should you read what I have to offer about curing diabetes? This is why: I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, and my physician wanted to put me on Metformin. I didn’t want to go on the drug, so I told her that I wanted to try curing diabetes on my own, through diet and exercise. I was successful! My best friend went through the same experience, and she was also able to find and utilize a diabetes cure. I’m more than happy to share what my friend, Sandy, and I discovered on our road to curing diabetes. It worked for both of us, although I’m certainly not saying it will work for everyone. By the way, my primary care physician has applauded my diabetic meal plan and diet!

Diabetes Cure – That I Used

My diabetes cure involved changing my lifestyle. I especially changed my diet to a low carb diet. I also added exercise. Allow me to back up for a moment. In early fall 2011, I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. My fasting blood sugar readings were in the 160-170 range. My LDL cholesterol and triglycerides were also elevated, and my A1C was 7 point something – close to 8. I did NOT want to use drugs as a treatment for diabetes if I could possibly avoid them. I was determined to change my lab results on my own.

In less than two months, my blood sugar readings, LDL, and triglycerides had come down significantly. As a side benefit, my HDL cholesterol, the beneficial kind, had risen. At that point, my fasting blood glucose was 120. That’s beyond the normal range, but it was a heck of a lot better than 160. By the way, I was also checking my blood sugar regularly at home.

Since I was seeing results, I was encouraged to continue with my low carb diet and exercise plan. By the way, I don’t engage in strenuous exercise because I can’t. I have nerve damage and foraminal stenosis – from a condition unrelated to type 2 diabetes. In fact, there are some days when I get very little exercise. When I can, however, I walk, do stair stepping, and do strength training. I usually have to exercise for short periods at a time, but I try to do so throughout the day. For example, on my good days, I try to do 50-100 stair steps every time I let the dogs out. I use my front porch steps.

My diabetes cure continued to work. My fasting blood sugar now is consistently in the 90 range. Even better, my A1C is in the 5 range, which is perfectly normal. I’ve also lost 52 pounds in the process. Will this type 2 diabetes cure work for you? It might not, but ask your physician if it’s worth a shot before he prescribes you drug treatments for diabetes.

Is Diabetes Curable?

Is diabetes curable? Well, it was for Sandy and me, but I did some research on this question. Some reputable physicians say that diabetes is curable – as long as a diabetes diet is followed. And I’m not talking about the diet recommended by the American Diabetes Association (ADA). I’m not knocking their diabetes diet, but it just didn’t work for me – or for my pal, Sandy. Their recommended diet is too high in carbs and too low in fats for us, so we came up with our own diabetic diets.

But is consuming more fats going to wreck our cardiovascular health? In an article that appeared in the November 3, 2006 issue of Men’s Health, University of Connecticut’s nutrition researcher Dr. Jeff Volek states, "Our research indicates that replacing carbohydrates with saturated fat has a beneficial effect on cardiovascular health. A low-carbohydrate diet decreases the body's production of saturated fat and increases its ability to burn the incoming dietary fat."

Volek also explains that numerous reputable studies revealed that a diet low in carbs yet high in fat was more heart-friendly than a diet high in carbs but low in fat. Sandy and I take sort of a middle-of-road approach here. We eat moderate amounts of fats, but we try not to overdo it. We do, however, restrict the number of carbohydrate grams we consume.

Okay, back to the topic at hand – is diabetes curable. According to Dr. Philipp Scherer, diabetes can be reversed in some situations, but the new lifestyle changes have to be maintained. If they’re not, type 2 diabetes will return. By the way, Dr. Scherer is the director of diabetes research at the University of Texas Southwestern.

But…is a diabetic diet, exercise plan, and weight loss diabetes cure really a cure? In an MSN article entitled “Beating Diabetes: Some Do, But Are They Cured?,” a Vanderbilt Medical Center assistant professor, Dr. Kevin Niswender, states, “Technically, you could call somebody cured.” Niswender goes on to explain that such patients would still need to be observed.

Of course, most doctors don’t believe in an actual diabetes cure. They agree that the disease can be managed, but not cured. If you always have normal blood glucose and normal A1C, why can’t that be considered a diabetes cure? My blood work is normal now, without any drug treatment for diabetes. I’m sure, however, if I were to regain the weight I’ve lost and return to my previous way of eating, my blood glucose would spike again.

30 Day Diabetes Cure

Have you read or heard of the book, The 30 Day Diabetes Cure? It was written by Dr. Stefan Ripich and was published in 2010. I haven’t read the book, but I have read reviews, and they’re a mixed bag. Some reviewers found The 30 Day Diabetes Cure extremely helpful, while others stated that the information wasn’t very helpful because it wasn’t specific enough. In fact, a couple of readers described the 30 day diabetes cure as “snake oil.” Of the online reviews I’ve seen, however, the majority were positive.

I decided to check out Dr. Ripich’s credentials. He’s a certified naturopathic physician and is also certified as a nurse practitioner. He specializes in holistic healing, based on traditional medicine and natural remedies and treatments. He believes that drugs are sometimes necessary but that in many cases, health problems can be treated or even cured with natural methods.

Based on the blurbs I’ve read online from The 30 Day Diabetes Cure, the thoughts on diabetes cures that my friend and I hold are mostly in line with Dr. Ripich’s. We focus on the carbs in foods and in their glycemic index. Foods with a high glycemic index are turned into glucose rapidly by the body, causing high blood sugar.

How to Cure Diabetes - Diabetes Cure Type 2

I’m going to share with you how to cure diabetes for yourself, without drugs. Again, I’m not guaranteeing that this diabetic cure type 2 will work for you, but it’s definitely worth discussing with your doctor. Even if it doesn’t cure your problem, it’s certainly a good treatment for diabetes, as it will help you manage your blood glucose. You’ll probably lose weight, too, and you’re likely to reap other health benefits, as well. Like I said, my LDL cholesterol and triglycerides are down, while my HDL cholesterol has risen.

The main things you need to be aware of with this diabetes cure type 2 are carb grams. How many carb grams should you consume a day? I can’t tell you that – you’ll probably have to do some tweaking until you find the number that works for you. I usually consume about 20-30 grams of carbs a day, and most of these come from non-starchy vegetables. If you’re obese, you’ll probably want to watch your caloric intake, too, but that wasn’t and still isn’t my main focus with curing diabetes.

How to Cure Diabetes:

Foods for Diabetics

Some people are totally lost when it comes to the right foods for diabetics. They might understand that they need to cut out table sugar, but they might not understand that carbs are often lurking in unlikely places. Something doesn’t have to taste sweet to have a high carb count. In fact, one of the worst culprits is white flour. Sugar is not your friend, but neither is flour or the products made from white wheat flour. Food for diabetics needs to be low in refined carbohydrates.

When you’re searching for foods for diabetics, you have to learn to read labels religiously. For raw foods that don’t include nutritional information, use the internet to research. Don’t count the total number of carb grams. Subtract the number of fiber grams from the total number of carb grams to get the “net” carb count. For example, a half cup of steamed broccoli contains 3 grams of carbs, but it has 1 gram of fiber, which the body can’t digest. Subtract the fiber from the carb total, and you’ll see that the serving of broccoli has only 2 effective carb grams.

I made the table below to help you find some good foods for diabetics, but it's in no way meant to be complete. If you're wondering how your favorite foods will fit into your diabetic meal plan, look up the carb count online.

Diabetic Meal Plan

My diabetic meal plan is mostly focused on lean meats, poultry, fish, seafood, eggs, fat-free egg products, low carb milk, cheeses, nuts, and non-starchy vegetables. Grains and fruits are eaten in small amounts. When I do include fruits in my diabetic meal plan, I choose fruits with the lowest carbs – raspberries, blueberries, and apples. I explain the grains I include below, in the “bread” section.

I can’t tell you that I never cheat – I’m human. When I know beforehand, however, I try to adjust my carbs and calories. For example, when my granddaughter’s birthday came up last month, I knew I’d want a piece of her brownie cake. The party was late that afternoon, so I didn’t consume any carbs all day before going to the party. When I got there, I had just half a brownie, which was enough to satisfy me but not enough to wreck my diabetic meal plan.

Think of your diabetic meal plan as a house. The foundation, walls, and roof should be comprised of good quality protein, with a moderate amount of fat. Carbs should play only a supporting role. We’ll make them the doors and windows. For example, when you make a sandwich, use low carb bread. Use meat, sliced tomatoes, lettuce, and bell peppers for the filling, and pile them on. The protein will keep you full for hours.

Here’s another tip for your diabetic meal plan – try to always eat a little protein with carbs, especially with simple carbs. If you want a slice of toast for breakfast, have an egg white or a slice of cheese with the toasted bread. The protein will slow down the absorption of the meal because protein is harder for your body to break down. Also, try to eat several small meals a day instead of consuming just one or two big meals.

Diabetic Food – Substitutions

I love to eat, and with my diabetic meal plan, I still enjoy many of my favorite foods. I’ve also become pretty adept at finding diabetic food substitutions for my favorite foods that are taboo on diabetic diets. I hope you’ll find these helpful!

Milk – Milk is pretty high in carbs because of its lactose. I use Hood Low Carb Milk, instead. It’s high in calcium and protein, but its low in carbs, fat, and calories.

Chocolate milk – I love Hood Low Carb Chocolate Milk! It’s chocolatey and rich, yet it has only 4 net grams of carbs per cup.

Potatoes – When I’m craving something creamy like mashed potatoes, I have creamed cauliflower, instead. I sometimes use steamed cauliflower in “potato salad,” too.

Rice – If you have a ricer, you can turn steamed cauliflower into a passable “rice.” Another option is to use rice-shaped Shirataki noodles, which have no carbs and no calories.

Pasta – As a diabetic food, whole wheat pasta is better than regular pasta, but Shirataki noodles are even better. Spaghetti squash is another healthy option.

Pudding – Use sugar-free pudding mix and Hood Low Carb milk.

Bread – Bread was my biggest challenge when it came to diabetic foods. I love bread. I came up with a low carb bread recipe that I eat often. It’s made of flax meal, and I’ve used the same basic recipe for numerous low carb bread recipes. I’ve made it as cheese bread, spice muffins, pancakes, and flat bread. For sandwiches, I often use Nature’s Own double-fiber wheat.

Tortillas – I use a lot of low carb tortillas – usually from La Tortilla Factory or Xtreme Wellness. A La Tortilla Factory low carb tortilla has only 3 net carbs. I use them for wraps, burritos, and tacos. Sometimes I fry or bake them to make crispy chips, quesadillas, or chimichangas. I’ve also used them as crusts for pies and pizza.

Sugar – I use granulated Splenda instead of sugar.

Flour – If I want something that requires being dredged in flour before frying, I use soy flour. I haven’t been able to tell the difference in my fried shrimp, fried fish, onion rings, fried squash, fried chicken, or country fried steak. You do, however, need to slice your meat or veggies thinner so that they’ll cook faster. Soy flour browns more quickly than white flour does.

Ice cream – When I just have to have ice cream, I sometimes buy low carb ice cream. I think Breyer’s is the best. At other times when I want something sweet, cold, and creamy, I make myself a slush with zero-calorie fruit syrup, ice, and low carb yogurt.

Potato chips – When I want something salty, I reach for pork rinds or nuts. Sometimes I snack on Special K Cracker Chips. 27 chips contain just 110 calories, 19 net carbs, and 3 grams of fat.

Crackers – The best low carb crackers I’ve found are All-Bran Multigrain crackers. 18 crackers contain 120 calories, 15 net carbs, and 6 grams of fat. Sometimes I make my own low carb crackers. For that recipe, click the link.

Candy – I’m not a huge fan of candy, but if I want a candy bar, I eat a Fiber One bar instead. They’re really good! One bar has 90 calories, 12 net carbs, and 2.5 fat grams.

Salad dressings – I use Walden Farms salad dressings. They have zero carbs, zero fat, and zero calories. Sometimes I add other seasonings, like spices or herbs, to the bottled dressings.

Ketchup – There are some foods that I drown in ketchup, and ketchup is not a diabetic food. Regular ketchup has 5 carb grams in a single tablespoon! Walden Farms ketchup has zero carb grams, but I don’t like it as well as Heinz Reduced Sugar ketchup, which has 1 gram of carbs per serving.

Cheesecake – This is a no-brainer. Just make a low carb cheesecake with Splenda, and use ground nuts for the crust. If you like, drizzle it with zero-calorie strawberry or cherry syrup.

Jams and jellies – Smuckers makes good sugar-free versions, and Walden Farms makes calorie-free versions. I often use the low carb or no carb jams and jellies to make dipping sauces and glazes for meats.

Dips – Use Walden Farms dips. Raw low-carb veggies and zero-calorie dips make great snacks.

Peanut butter – Use Walden Farms peanut spread.

      Hi My name is Donna Riley, I am an RN, I really applaud you for doing your own diet to cure diabetes. That is what you call taking charge of your own health, no body knows your body like you do. Metformin itself have it side effect, and after a while most meds do not work, so the doctor have to increase the dose, or give insulin. You are a testimony to all of us that have this problem. I know better and sometimes I do go overboard and eat what I am not supposed to eat. Scientist are trying very hard to get rid of these chronic condition such as diabetes, with gene therapy. I wrote a hub about gene therapy and diabetes. I really enjoyed reading your hub, and I intent to follow you. Thanks for such an inspiration hub.

      Congratulations Habee, and well done...not only on the diet and results but on the writing of this well-written, highly informative and beneficial blog--or hub, as I guess it's called here. I too have Type-2 diabetes and I too believe it to be curable witrh diet and treatment. I have done that but for me it comes and goes in spurts; I go through periods where because of whatever reason--lack of time, willpower, increased stress, or whatnot, I normally buy and eat all low sugar and low carb, low fat foods, but give in to temptation at times. Like the time I spent 10 minutes alone trying to decide on the best low carb/low fat/low sugar frozen pizza to buy at the market, only to buy it and then grab a greasy pie from the pizzeria next door anyway. So I applaud you for your determination and consistency and resistance to temptation!

      BTW, I am sharing this on my Facebook. This deserves/needs to be read by many.

      Thank you for sharing your experience with diabetes. I just found out I have it as well as high cholestrol and high blood pressure. I have spent days on the internet reading everyones views and yours seems to be the most simplistic and doable. It seems overwelming to deal with all this at once. The meds are making me sick and achy. Seems kind of silly to just except this so I will be incorprating your ideas. My goal is to be off meds in six months.

      Great hub. I have a close family member who has never even attempted to control their type 2 diabetes with diet. It's scary because the pills weren't enough after a while, so she had to add insulin shots. Her blood sugar still spikes because her diet is so poor. I'll pass this article along, but she has been very reluctant to try anything but the prescriptions.

      I applaud your assertiveness with your own health issues. More people should do as you and your friend have done and get involved, by researching and taking matters seriously, into your own hands.

      You are to be commended on the successful results. As "living proof" your credibility shines.
