Type 2 Diabetes: You CAN Reverse It! Updated on June 21, 2019 By William Clement 49 Comments By William Clement 49 Comments KenDBerryMD June 21, 2019 Don't let your doctor tell you that a HbA1c above 5.6 is "ok" or "close enough". At those levels you are doing permanent damage to every small artery in your body, from the arteries in your eyes to the ones in you kidneys. You must fix your diet to fix your diabetes! Reply VINCENT SMITH June 21, 2019 thank you for this video DR. Reply Jose Ochoa June 21, 2019 Thank you for giving me hope Reply Gary Spencer June 21, 2019 Thank you Dr for a great video.Its real encouraging.I'm type 2.with high a1c of9.6.I weight about 440.Would you recommend the keto diet or the palo diet to start my weight loss?Thanks. Reply Jamar Caldwell June 21, 2019 Thank you for your videos Dr.B..im learning so much. Reply Craig Alcott June 21, 2019 You and I are on the same page, Dr. Berry, I'm not here to talk about the cure (which, I have it on good authority, cures both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, but have not yet personally verified it yet, is a grain called "Syrian Rue") but let's call it a hack. I have found that Type 2 diabetes is easily addressed nutritionally by adding 2 trace element nutrients, those being Chromium & Selenium. Cheap fix. 5 bucks a bottle or less each at anyplace that sells supplements. One tablet a day of each for 6 weeks, so supports pancreatic function as to step off your Type 2 diabetes indefinitely. But there are other things A whole food plant based diet is enough without anything else. Exercise is good to get your juices flowing, BUT go until you begin to sweat and then STOP. Preserving your body's minerals are crucial. Want to know how nutritional replacement for FREE? EAT wood fire ashes as the Amish do. Sprinkle some on your food. If you want to go a little spendy use Himalayan Pink Salt. Most of what I'm saying here comes from Joel Wallach, Michael Gregor, T. Colin Campbell, Caldwell Esselstyn. You clearly took the Oath of Hippocrates seriously. I'm just a dot connector but the stuff I'm telling you is verified. "To Do No Harm." Reply W for Wilhelmina June 21, 2019 Thank you Dr Berry for this video. My dad has just been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and this is the best information he needs to hear. Reply Sabrina Zakrowski June 21, 2019 It makes sense. What do we tell an alcoholic that wants to clean up their act and their health? Quit drinking! If our bodies don't process carbohydrates well because of insulin resistance, then eating a lot of them is a bad idea for our health. Reply Adam June 21, 2019 I've been T2D for only 5 years. Every doctor, specialist and Diabetes educator has told me it's not reversible. My pancreas does NOT produce ANY of its normal insulin. So how does something that doesn't work or is broken, automatically heals it's self and starts to work ? How can a broken part be all of a sudden 'fixed' ?? Reply erin Carubbi June 21, 2019 You are so right! I'm a dialysis technician and 99.9% of our patients are diabetic. Diabetes causes kidney failure, heart disease, blindness, loss of limbs. It is a slow killer. Also kidney failure has a whole host of other health issues to go along with the diabetes. Reply Phillip Grimm June 21, 2019 what do you think about the whole 30 diet? Reply Diététiste Pèdi Pwa June 21, 2019 I can't be the only one that likes my conment Reply artchic528 June 21, 2019 Type 2 Diabetes is genetic in the case of my family. My maternal grandfather was a thin man, very slight in build and stature actually, and yet by his 60's had Type 2. His wife, my Grandma, was a nurse, so she had him on a strict diet after his diagnosis. He still went downhill. My mother, also of slight build, has been diagnosed as prediabetic as her A1C is slightly elevated beyond normal range. She has been on a very healthy diet (a vegetarian diet actually) for years. She consumed very little, if any sugar. Yet she still has elevated A1C. She's been on a stricter diet ever since. My older brother also had a wonky A1C, and isnt overweight in the slightest either, for a while but thanks to diet changes, got it under control. Type 2 diabetes is genetic in my family. It's never been diet related as far as we are concerned. Reply Mr Imran June 21, 2019 Hi.Doc Ive been recently diagnosed. And on 2000 mg of metformin i started keto from a week. My concern is do i still need to take metformin? Reply Kathryn B June 21, 2019 13:18 book recommendations Reply Kimberly Walker June 21, 2019 My husband is on carnivore diet day 6. His A1C was 6.5 on last lab 3 weeks ago. Doc said to double Metformin & lose weight. How will he know if he’s taking to much medication while on carnivore diet? Reply marilu hernandez June 21, 2019 Thank you ! Reply Vishakha Majithia June 21, 2019 What if I have the proper recommended weight and yet have a long history of Type 2 diabetes? What logic should I reason myself with? Can someone with a history of a heart attack follow the ketogenic diet coupled with intermittent fasting? Are there any specific points I should keep in mind when doing this? THANK YOU !!! Reply Dogma Logy June 21, 2019 Dr, Berry, I'm treated by VA. Which I have a Dr. who listens to me and enjoys my printed out copies pf possible cures. I was 50 when I moved from Austin to Houston. My sugar went to 550 and I was peeing blood and had passed out at Walmart and taken to hospital. I didn't have insurance so I had to go to VA. The Dr there was from Africa and she didn't care about patients and started me at 100 units of fast acting n long acting. I ended up getting real sick. 3 months later I had a enlarged heart,etc.. MY nurse transferred me to a clinic and new Drs. With help of the new Dr. I dropped my ac1 from 9 to 7. Im do 50 unit of fast and long acting insulin. Yes I'm insulin resistant. I talked to them about CBD;s as a cure for Diabetes. The more I studied cures I found that the only way to cure myself is dong what you have explained in video. Thanks so much for info. Going to find your books and read them. Thanks again. Reply Penguin Master June 21, 2019 I have type two diabetes so do I have to take all the medications that are prescribed for me can I still save myself two-stroke too hard to stance Reply ellen stasko June 21, 2019 My new doctor just prescribed Jardiance for A1c 0f 6.9. I reacted to metformin. I'm seeing the horrible side effects and afraid to take med. What's your opinion? I'm trying a low carb diet but wonder how successful I'll be. Thanks Reply Vincent Tacraebnam June 21, 2019 Never has a Doctor spoken to me like this – they are too busy….thank you – I can only pay you by subscribing and I did – lifesaver Reply Pakar Diet Penurunan Berat Badan June 21, 2019 hi im early so like this comment Reply Obey God June 21, 2019 I'm 40 years old my A1c was a 6.9 and I lost a lots of weight just by watching this video and learning how to control my diet now my A1c is 4.3 I cut out the carbs and sugar I use to weigh 197 I drop down to 148 pounds right now to this day my doctor took me off my Diabetes medication. people, please!!!!! listen to what Dr.Ken D Berry is saying it worked for me.

I cannot find any information on keto and nueropathy. Can you help me find information? Reply Negobrun52 M! June 21, 2019 Diabetes can be easily cured by staying away from eating animals and their products. Stop smoking; stop drinking coffee, alcohol; stop drinking sodas. Stop consuming white sugar and brown sugar; And now start eating natural foods: legumes, greens, grains, nuts, fruits etc… Reply Benjamin Drew June 21, 2019 Does organic vegetable juicing count as a bad thing drinking calories? I do carrots, apples, greens, beets and so on. Reply Ruslan Rus June 21, 2019 Some doctors are shit with no experiences Reply Benchmark Pharmacy June 21, 2019 Low carb advocate! Reverse t2d with whole foods plant based diet. No portion control eat to satiation and enjoy your life. No fear of side effects of keto and related diet fads. Reply Evelyn Maye June 21, 2019 I got type2 diabetes after taking steroids for an ear infection is it permanent??? Reply White Rock June 21, 2019 Is there a diabetic medication that should be taken while doing a keto or fasting intermittent fasting diet? Is Metformin ok to keep blood sugar down while doing Keto or does it Delay the healing process? Reply White Rock June 21, 2019 Does the high blood sugar it's self causes damage? Or is it the high insulin levels that are causing the damage? Reply Kashif Abbasi June 21, 2019 Thanks Doc Reply Robin Greenhow June 21, 2019 Help….That's all I'm saying…😥 Reply HAVOK June 21, 2019 Rock on! Reply Edward Kodai June 21, 2019 I'm happy that you're pro self responsible. I'm sick of doctors being arrogant about what I find out. Just because they went to medical school. I'm a citizen scientist. When they said to me that I should be eating 60 grams of carbs per meal with 20 grams per snack both at 3x per day. That's 240 grams per day. If a person is carb sensitive because of insulin resistance then why would you tell someone to eat any carbs. Not logical. I've restricted my diet to almost no carbs. May upwards of 15 carbs per day. I'm off insulin. I'm off metformin and I'll get rid of glipozide soon. I feel so much better. And I did this from my studies. Not a single bit of help from my doctor. The standard of care will lead to having a very bad time on Earth. 100% of the time. Reply BAD COMPANY June 21, 2019 7.8 mmol/L is Type 2 Diabetic? Reply Wayne Rogers June 21, 2019 Keto is easy. “Piece of cake.”, so to speak. Here’s the deal. The bad news and the good news. The bad news: My HgA1C is 12.4. Triglycerides are >800Fasting Glucose is 354. I’ve made myself into a Type 2 Diabetic. What that means is I’m going to die. Probably not soon, but maybe. Before I die, I’ll wish I was dead many times over. Parts of my body will shut down. I will likely go blind, or nearly so. As it progresses I may surgically lose some appendages. I won’t be having sex but that’s ok because I won’t want to anyway……. The good news:My liver and renal function tests are all in normal range. If I eliminate sugar (all of it in any form), grains (all of them), limit carbs to <20 gr/day, eliminate ‘vegetable’ oils, my blood sugar will come down to normal levels, triglycerides will come down, I’ll think more clearly, lose belly fat I’ve never been able to lose, my fatty liver will go away, my energy level will increase and I’ll feel better overall while I become more healthy as this process reverses. Bearing this in mind, I’ve had NO insurmountable cravings for sweets, milk, breads (even the fancy French ones, whole grain ones and homemade healthy ones), fruit juices (that I thought were good and healthy and ‘natural’). Avocados, asparagus, salmon, bacon, beef, bone broth, and eggs look, taste and feel really good. After 3 weeks my non-fasting blood sugar was down to 119 last night (with the temporary help of 1,000 mg/day metformin). Today was 127 but that may be normal fluctuation. I’ll know more as I build more test history. I’ve had no sugar, no bread, no food from any grains, no packaged food of any kind, drank only water, coffee or tea since I got the news. Haven’t really wanted any of the other stuff either. Yep, I bought a glucose meter and test before and after meals to see what affects my blood sugar and how much and I’ve watched most of Dr. Berry’s and a couple other’s videos. I looked back over some prior blood work I had on file. Nowhere was my A1C ever tested. Fasting blood glucose was running between 96-104 every year through last year. I was told I had a “mild fatty liver”, “most people have that. Nothing really to do about it. Never known anyone to get rid of it and nothing to really worry about because there aren’t any other related issues or complications.” Triglycerides were running 250-325 and the recommendation was to “increase whole grains and cut back on (not eliminate) rice and potatoes”. I started having numbness in the toes of both feet a couple years ago, my feet felt cold as ice all the time, I developed a progressive polyaxonal neuropathy in my right leg, have a lot of dark “age spots” on my feet and an MRI of my brain show’s white spots indicative of multiple sclerosis. No one knows how I could have developed that at 58 years old since it normally appears in much younger people. This is during and after examinations by several GP’s, 3 neurologists, 4 orthopedic specialists and a rheumatologist. The recent rheumatologist ran an A1C after I suddenly lost 48 pounds without really trying to. (I told him I was happy to lose the weight and wanted to see how my blood work now compared to a test run a year ago, wondering how much better it might look. He added an A1C to the routine but I have nothing earlier to compare it to. We didn’t check insulin levels or C-peptide but I will shortly anyway based on comment by Dr. Berry. I haven’t written any of this down before and it turned out to be really long. Not sorry. It feels really good to get this off my mind. Anyway, thanks Dr. Berry. I look forward to being on a right track now with diet and hope to make real progress rapidly. I’ll be following your channel while I search for a doctor in my area that I can work with and monitor my case. I hope you all to be well, be happy, and smile too much. Reply canuck fan17 June 21, 2019 What about milk? 1%/2%? Reply Denvco1 June 21, 2019 Thank you, I'm 52 and my a1c is 6.5. Dr gave me metformin and gabapentin for neuropathy. I have changed my diet. The neuropathy is horrible, hate it. Thank you for the video. Reply Tim Carter June 21, 2019 How do you know you are cured if your blood sugar reading isn't the means to know? Reply Alene Bolling June 21, 2019 Thank you so much for making this video. It has made me feel so much better. I use found out that I am prediabetic and I want to change that. This gives me hope that I can. Looking forward to starting Leto, then paleo.. Reply Jo Hannes June 21, 2019 “Reversing” does not mean “Cured!” Reply Eating to live June 21, 2019 Dr. Berry. Thank you for your channel. I want to get off insulin. I'm type 2Thor Reply Nick Peacock June 21, 2019 I am overweight by twenty five pounds. I have lost ten pounds in the last two months by not eating sugar, some exercising and staying away from wheat. But I do like eating a huge plate of Quaker oats in the morning. I would like to stop that but don't know what to replace it with, I am also on a budget. I am going to be tested for diabetes next week and for Celiac decease. I have slight foot pain (eat lots of bananas to see if it helps but not really) and have problems with constant gas when in public specially when seated (I am specially concerned about this one). Can you help? Thank you very much for your time. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
