Diabetes

76 year old male

I went to Dr. Honigman after 2 major surgeries, a spinal fusion and shoulder. I had been sedentary for 6 months, was overweight and had a diagnosis of diabetes. My A1C was 7.3 and my blood sugar was 144. My cholesterol was 134. My regular doctor had me on the diabetes drug, Metformin.

Dr. Honigman recommended a low carbohydrate, low sugar diet and some supplements. I did not count calories, I just ate only what he recommended and tood the supplements. In 3 weeks I had lost 22 pounds. I went back to my regular doctor around this time and my A1C was down to 6.3. He said that if it gets under 6 he would take me off the diabetes drug.

I am now down 40 pounds. My A1C is 5.7 and blood sugar count is 99. My cholesterol is 114. My regular doctor took me off the diabetes drug. I have less pain and more energy. I'm back to working around the house and regularly do yard work at home and at my church. Recently I sealed a driveway.

I owe this to Dr. Honigman. He knew exactly how to straighten me out. God bless him!
