A couple of months ago I posted information on a 65 Year Old Diabetic gentleman who had adatped Paleo and I shared the results after one month of his new diet. Well, good news, he was back today two months later, and here are his updated results!
Over A Three Month Period:
Weight: He has lost 30 Pounds
BMI: 34.58 (Start), 33.23 (1 month), 30.52 (3 months)
Hemoglobin A1C: Dropped from 7.36(0) to 6.57 (1) to 6.02 (3)
Liver Function Tests: AST/ALT 80/68 (0), 51/39 (1), 40/34 (3)
Cholesterol/Trigs/HDL/LDL: 186/211/45/98, 141/240/33/60 (1), 137/151/38/68 (3)
Now all of this is very impressive, but here is what I found most fascinating. This was his medication regimen for his diabetes at time 0:
Levemir Insulin 100 Units at night (Long-acting insulin)
Apidra Insulin 20 Units Three Time a Day with Meals (Short-acting insulin)
Glucophage 1000mg Twice a Day
As he has lost weight, he has had to cut is Levemir in HALF to 50 Units nightly, and completely STOP his Apidra with meals.
If only you could all see the smile on his face 🙂
