What do you mean by diabetes reversal?

Diabetes reversal occurs when a patients average blood glucose levels (HbA1c) are less than 48 mmmol/mol (6.5%) and sustained for more than 3 months in the absence of diabetes medication.

How can you reverse Type 2 Diabetes?

The idea of drug-free diabetes reversal (T2D) gives hope to many and can only be achieved with a patient centred individualised approach to their management. My approach at The Whitehall Clinic involves a combination of medication and supported lifestyle interventions of which dietary manipulation plays a large role. With sugary and starchy substances worsening blood glucose control, a low-carbohydrate diet is the logical first step. Then, once control is achieved, the medication I prescribe throughout the course of your treatment can be stopped or reduced.

What are your results for Type 2 Diabetes reversal?

Over 95% of my patients have achieved improved diabetic control, sustaining it for an average of 3 years. Of those, the patients who started with ‘younger’ diabetes and lower blood glucose levels were far more likely to beat their diabetes (T2D) into remission. Additionally, 75% of those who adopted our structured low carbohydrate approach in the first year of their treatment showed increased levels of diabetes reversal. Even those that are in non-remission do still achieve important advancements in their diabetic control, whilst also improving their lipid profile, blood pressure and both renal and liver functions, benefiting their quality of life significantly.

What happens at my diabetes appointment?

I spend the time learning about your diabetes, as well as your current lifestyle and risk factors. I also want to know about your current or past treatments, so if you have any blood results or have been on any medication, please feel free to bring them to the appointment to avoid duplication.
