Glucose Tolerance Effect

Dear Dr Rosedale


I've been a follower of yours since reading "Diabetes is not a disease of
blood sugar" three years ago. I've achieved major success in cutting out
carbs like rice; bread; pastas; potatoes etc. I've come out the medication.
I must admit though that this success simply cannot be achieved without
taking regular readings. When asking my doctor to write a motivation for my
medical insurance to provide test strips he questioned the fact of my being
diabetic. He suggested a glucose tolerance test which I did. He is a new
doctor whom I'm using these days therefore does not know my history.


Since the test my body is responding very badly to the diet I have been
following in the past. For example the high fiber cereal use to produce a
reading of 5.2 after two hours of eating breakfast. Today I got a reading
of 9.2 (after two hours). This can be said for a lot of the other things I
eat like apples which did not affect my sugar levels before.


My body seems unable to lower the sugar levels as it did before the glucose
test. By the way, the test yielded results that indicated that I was not
diabetic, not even pre-diabetic. I am sure that if administered again my
body would yield different results. I am of the view that in following your
diet I have reversed the diabetes effect.until the glucose test.


My Question:

. Is it possible that I might have upset the insulin function within
my body by the glucose spike during the test administered by the doctor?

. If yes, how can I get my body back its original state.

. Lastly, is the glucose tolerance test advisable given the upset
I've experienced.


Dr Rosedale, I would appreciate your personal assistance in this matter.

    Dear Galvin,
    Thank you for your message. You were doing so great, reading, researching for yourself and finding the correct answers, but more importantly you were implementing the diet and seeing the miraculous results! Congratulations. We are so sorry that you followed the directions to take glucose test, you most probably have glucose toxicity. Just follow the diet, there should never be a reason for you to have taken that test, as you know sugar is just not good for the body and this will set you back a little, but you will get to where you were again.

    I would love your permission if we could make this conversation public on our support site so that others can learn as well? Your personal email etc will not be visible.

    Health and Happiness

    You may use my experience for public benefit however I would like meaningful feedback regarding the probable toxicity you've mentioned and more importantly an explanation of how I can normalise the situation again.

    Kind Regards

    Dear Galvin,

    The main way is to stick with the diet which will get you back to normalcy and never allow them to do a glucose tolerance test again ;-). Keep a record of what happened so that if it does come up again you can share that with them to support your adamant rejection of doing this test. Taking some of the supplements mentioned in the book will also help as well. You are, and you were on the right track, you will get back to where you were.

    Thanks Fiona

    At the moment I am using Flax seed oil and Vitamen D. Please provide me with the names of the essential supplements I should use.

    I've just done some reading up on Glucose toxicity and Glucose desensitization - the latter seems reversable.

    Kind Regards

    They also say that diabetes is not reversible ;-) yet, Dr Ron for 2 decades has very quickly being able to have patients kiss goodbye to their type II diabetes.

    You should of gotten the other message regarding supplements. Flax oil is good too, just would need to take a little more than what we recommended in the fish oil.

    All the best.

    Dear Fiona

    For some reason I was not able to log onto the website discussion. In response to the discussion on milk see my question below:

    I appreciate the discussion about milk because I enjoy the little milk I have with my high fibre cereal in the morning...

    I've recently heard that plain full-cream yohgurt is a super food - is this so, or does it fall into the milk category as explained by Fiona?

    Lastly is soya milk allowed if not are there any other milk alternatives.

    Kind Regards

    The link should work at the bottom of my message to you. We just answered a similar question regarding milk. Always keep in mind, what are the macro nutrients. many many products have amazing 'micro' nutrients, but then the overwhelming sugar for outweighs the goodness of those micro nutrients.
