Question: I have Type 2 diabetes and my A1C reading has crept up to 7.3 (normal is 5.8). I am 65 and exercise moderately, but obviously I’m not watching my diet closely enough. I take oral diabetic medications glyburide and metformin. Do you believe that in the near future I will have to take insulin injections?

Dr. Brownstein’s Answer:

You answered your own question! A poor diet is the No. 1 cause of Type 2 diabetes. Luckily for you, a hemoglobin AIC of 7.3 is not that bad — a little effort on your part can reverse this condition.

It is important to eliminate refined sugar, flour, salt, and oil from your diet. Also, reduce or eliminate all refined carbohydrates such as bread, pasta, and cereal. Instead, eat a diet consisting of organic products, including fruits, vegetables, and meats.

Detoxifying your liver and taking the right supplements can further help. I have developed a supplement — GLUC-Control — which has been very helpful at improving insulin resistance and alleviating Type 2 diabetes. (GLUC-Control can be found at www.centerforholisticmedicine.com.)
