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.

    Hey Bob! Congratulations!! I come from a family of diabetics, none of whom were able to control their diet, so I doubly appreciate your victory. Keep at it.
