I have spent years trying all kinds of diet combinations, exercise and supplements to control my diabetes. I was using 46 units of Lantis insulin every night. When I changed to a plant-based and organic diet, however, my blood sugars started to drop. My doctor never prescribed this or even mentioned that I could control my diabetes this well with nutrition; he just told me to exercise and watch what I ate.
The diet changes got me off of my cholesterol medicine and down to 8 units of insulin, but it was frustrating to come so far and still have to take that shot every night, plus the pill for my blood pressure. My mother-in-law asked if I wanted a NutriBullet for Christmas; I guess she saw the infomercial on TV and I thought it sounded a lot better than some of the gifts she’s bought me over the years, so I said it would be great.
Well, I have to say, adding the smoothies to my routine at Christmas was just the boost I needed to drop the last eight units of insulin and the pill for my blood pressure. It’s been 41 days since I stopped taking Lantis insulin and I’ve never had such good blood sugar readings or felt so energetic.
