Natural Food Interaction (NFI) Diet and DM2

We spoke about the results, which will be published and constitute an unprecedented 97.2 percent type 2 diabetes remission rate. Meaning that based on current data, anyone suffering from type 2 diabetes has a near 100 percent probability of entering full clinical remission within 20 weeks if they follow the NFI diet.

Diabetes runs in my family.  My father had diabetes and my youngest brother also has the disease.  I do a lot of reading and research to better understand what I personally need to do to never develop diabetes.  The NFI diet sounds amazing.  This is just another powerful piece of evidence that supports adopting a mostly plant based diet.

If you’re as excited about this news as I am please share these articles and links.  Your diabetic family and friends will thank you.

And if you’re wondering my last fasting blood sugar was <100mg/dl and my A1C last measured in 2015 was 5.8%.

A1c test MISSES Many Cases of Diabetes

Must read if you’re an underwriter.  Here.

The new study included 9,000 adults without a diabetes diagnosis. The participants got both an A1c test and an oral tolerance glucose test, and the researchers compared the results. The researchers found the A1c test didn’t catch 73 percent of diabetes cases that were detected by the oral glucose test. “The A1c test said these people had normal glucose levels when they didn’t,” Chang Villacreses said.
