ZERO tolerance for hypoglycemia
As more and more type 2 diabetics discover the Wheat Belly and other low-carb lifestyles, they are also discovering how rapidly and easily blood sugars drop. As diabetics become less diabetic–a process that can occur VERY quickly, often within 24 hours of removing all wheat/grains from their diet–but they are taking insulin or certain diabetes drugs, there is potential for hypoglycemia or low blood sugar. Low blood sugar from diabetes drugs can be dangerous and should be avoided at all costs. (Imagine if a non-diabetic started administering insulin or blood sugar-reducing drugs–it would result in life-threate...

Live the Wheat Belly lifestyle, get off prescription medications
Take a look at the list of medications people have been able to stop by following the Wheat Belly lifestyle. These represent medications prescribed by doctors to, in effect, “treat” the consequences of consuming wheat and grains. They prescribe drugs to treat inflammation, swelling, skin rashes, gastrointestinal irritation, high blood sugars, airway allergy, joint pain, high blood pressure, leg edema and other abnormal effects caused by wheat and grains. The list includes anti-inflammatory and pain medication, acid reflux drugs, injectable and oral drugs for diabetes, numerous anti-hypertensive agents, asthma i...

Join the Undoctored Revolution
Let’s take back control over personal health. Share this to expose healthcare for the corrupt enterprise it is. Imagine that you receive a letter in the mail stating “In order to retain your right to freedom of speech, you will be billed $10,000 per year every year for the rest of your life.” You would be—-understandably-—outraged. Freedom of speech in America is precious, something Americans have waged wars to defend, something we now view as a basic right, no financial price required to maintain it. It should be free and available to everyone regardless of religion, color, political leanings, or income. ...

MKSAP: 64-year-old man with diabetes
Test your medicine knowledge with the MKSAP challenge, in partnership with the American College of Physicians. A 64-year-old man is evaluated for his quarterly diabetes care follow-up visit. Point-of-care HbA1c level is not at goal for this patient, who has high function, long life expectancy, few comorbidities, good support, health literacy, and access to care. Medical history is significant for hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and obesity. His family history is notable for type 2 diabetes mellitus in his mother and hypertension and chronic kidney disease in his father. Medications are metformin, glipizide, hydrochlorothia...

Health should be FREE
Imagine that you receive a notice in the mail stating “In order to maintain your freedom of speech, you will be billed $10,000 per year.” You would be—understandably—outraged. Freedom of speech in America is precious, something Americans have fought wars to defend. We view free speech as a basic right, no big check to write in order to maintain it. It should be free and available to everyone regardless of religion, color, political leanings, or income. I believe that same principle should apply to health. Being healthy means living free of common chronic health conditions such as high cholesterol, high blood sugars...

Diabetes, Inc.
For Big Pharma and others who profit from human disease, type 2 diabetes is the gift that keeps on giving. Approaching one trillion dollars in worldwide costs, type 2 diabetes is largely a man-made condition. For the majority of people, type 2 diabetes (and, to a substantial degree, type 1 diabetes also) is created by: Cutting dietary fat and cholesterol–as advised the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the USDA, the American Diabetes Association, the American Heart Association, and the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Increased consumption of grains–that raise blood sugar higher than table sugar,...

ZERO TOLERANCE for hypoglycemia
Wheat elimination starts you powerfully on the path to reversing diabetes. We’ve seen it many times and it continues to develop in people who kiss their bagels, pretzels, and processed foods booby-trapped with wheat and grains goodbye. But, as diabetics become less diabetic–a process that can occur VERY quickly, often within days of removing all wheat and grain products from their diet–but they are taking insulin or certain diabetes drugs, there is potential for hypoglycemia or low blood sugar. Low blood sugar from diabetes drugs can be dangerous and should be avoided at all costs. (Imagine if a non-diabetic started ...
