    Hi Dr
    I have just been diagnosed T2D. My 3 month ave was 104. Cholesterol was 0. I was prescribed metformin 500mg and told how to introduce it to my body.
    HOWEVER, I;m not happy with the eventuality of becoming a slave to meds. I'm 64 and want to reverse it with a low/no carb diet and have researched it. Am I safe to ignore the metformin and undertake, with mmol blood checker, this low/no carb diet being mindful that I may encounter glycomic symptoms and need an occasional boost to my sugar levels.

    It is about time more Drs spoke up to challenge the faulty carbohydrate premise, anyone interested in lowing blood sugar levels and controlling diabetes should also look at USA Dr Ken Berry who is trying his hardest to educate people,both inside and outside of the medical profession. Well done to this enlightened British dr also.

  21. Dan Ford

    You never bothered to mention what the normal glucose level is, the number. Your lack of this number made your video useless, I wasted my time. Thanks for nothing!

  22. Alan Boo

    Diabetes is a silent killer & you can make it your best friend or your worst nightmare. It's one of those diseases, if ignored will creep up on you. To show how serious diabetes is more than 450 million people are diabetic world wide & in the USA every, for mins a person is added to the kidney transplant list. Having said that the sooner you take action the more likely you are in increasing your life expectancy in combating obisity, high blood pressure, brain annurysim, kidney disease, blindness & gangerine. Just look up the side effects & symptoms & speak to your doctor, specialist & dietitian, because prevention is certainly better than a cure. Having said that diabetes is reversible. For example I reversed my kidney functioning from 11% to 70%, after dialysis & taking drastic action. The reason IAM saying this is because I had a stroke, which I don't want anyone to go through. I used to be able to easily wash the car , do house work & drive & do 35 consecutive push-ups. But after my stroke I can't even do 1 pushup, drive or jog & I have to 1 hour physio twice a week. Having said that you can still enjoy your junk food, once a week in 5 day intervals. If you only know what's its like, how to feel how something that takes you 4% effort, after a stroke it will take you 70% effort. By the way stroke is the second killer behind hear disease globally. You certainly can't place a price on your health. If it was up to me I will implement a health plan system for people in different stages of their health. Exercise is very important. Don't take your health for granted, because it's not worh it. Eventually your new healthy diet & 3 times a week exercise will become a habit & you'll live a very satisfied long life up to 80+ if you take action now before it's to late. For example I eat every 5 day intervals. Saturdays MacDonald's breakfast & Thursday KFC lunch. Then I skip a week, then Saturday & Thursday etc. Also never cure depression with binge eating, because your better off going to the gym, washing the car, & doing the lawn & house work, because after a stroke you won't be able to do any of these things. Avoid the pit of 🔥 at all costs. Oh also when my kidney functioning was 11%, I had Edema, which is a swelling caused by excess fluid trapped in your body's tissues. But now I have mild Edema & don't wear compression socks.

    I'm sorry but I didn't hear you say what a normal blood glucose level was. Just add glucose to water. 1 is same as what is on mine. 2 is diabetes. Click bate if you ask me.

  25. Maureen o'brien

    But what is a normal level…I am still clueless after this video…is it 70/80/90???

  26. Alford Lau

    Thank you for your concise explanation. It helps me to understand the topic.

  27. Paul Salvaterra

  28. lorin wegand

    I thought I would be shown numbers on the meter and the correct, healthy numbers corresponding with different age groups. Borrrrring!

  29. Amulya Kudchadkar

    you have not answered your own question what is normal glucose in mg% in blood

  30. LJ Marzula

    I'm sorry but you sound like Dr. Hannibal Lecter when you say "diabetes".😁

  31. Alex Katsimeros

    so what is a normal level 5.0 or 10.5 you haven't told us you just showed how fine the the tipping point between high and low glucose is . misleading title.

  32. Hammer USN

    I was on metformin for about 10 years. The doctor said keep carbs to 40 or less per meal…. my glucose levels were NEVER good. I went on a KETO diet, and 2 meals a day. Now my glucose level averages roughly 95…. ! I have lost alot of pounds and stomach fat . I average about 15 carbs….PER DAY, with NO MORE metformin.

  33. better soc

    do not buy 'Relion' Walmart, nonreturnable, each meter is inaccurate, no switch to turn power off, sound volume is not adjustable / employee said in CVS, returnable / Rite Aid, returnable if box is not open, confirm in document [not verbally OK returnable]
