Regular readers of this Journal know that, a few years ago, I suffered a stroke that made the whole left side of my body go to sleep.
Caused by the fact that I had undiagnosed diabetes, high cholesterol and hypertension.
Caused by the fact that I was overweight.
Regular readers of this Journal also know that, right after those diagnoses, it looked like I was going to have to check my blood glucose and give myself an insulin shot five times every day for the rest of my life.
But I quickly learned everything I could about diabetes and nutrition, and I immediately began eating very sensibly and carefully.
As a result, several weeks later, I was able to replace my five daily insulin shots with one daily insulin pill.
Several months later, I had lost over 100 pounds and had completely taken control of my cholesterol, hypertension and diabetes.
My doctor repeatedly urged me to write a book about how I had done it.
Instead, I shared my story on this Web site.
Now it’s been a little more than 3 1/2 years since my stroke.
I’m still taking several specific vitamins and nutritional supplements, but it’s been a couple of years since I last took any hypertension or cholesterol medicines at all.
And a couple of years since I last took more than one-half of a diabetes pill each day.
In fact, it’s been well over a year since I last took any diabetes medication at all.
Yet my A1c blood glucose level is still a very low-and-healthy 5.4.
So yesterday, my doctor surprised me by doing something that I hadn’t known was even possible.
He told me that he’s going to completely remove the word “diabetes” from my patient file.
Because I’m no longer a diabetic.
That’s right — I don’t have diabetes any more.
My weight loss completely cured it.
