  1. I am 81 years old. In 1957 I had an autoimmune event. I have reactive hypoglycemia (see, no ads, no promotion). In 1964 I took a glucose tolerance test. The dumb specialist said I was prediabetic. Boy was he wrong. I took the test because I had all the symptoms of episodes of very low blood sugar. My test showed me that I was getting them 3 1/2 hours after eating too much sugar/starch/alchol. i modified my diet but not enough. About 16 years ago I put myself on a sever low carb diet. With this diet most of my symptoms slowly cleared but I gained weight. I was not eating a ketogenic diet. With that my weight would have ballooned. I cut the fat in the diet and lost weight. About 3 years ago I figured out what must be happening. Among the things it explained why women with my genetics get gestational diabetes. Why we do not lose weight on a low carb diet (unless we starve). What actually causes type 2 diabetes. See

  2. How about whole food plant based?? Much better, and a lot more research behind it, and isn't super unsafe and unhealthy, like keto is. Keto is not good for you; it creates intramyocellular lipids increasing which just increases insulin resistance… gosh. Y'all have some of the best plant-based docs there (Esselstyn) with years of research as evidence for those ways of eating, yet you guys keep pushing fad stuff… but keto will keep those cardiologists in business 😉

  3. Hello I'm cambell by name, I'm giving a testimony about Dr.Abumere the great Herbalist, he has the cure to all manner of diseases, he cured my herpes disease, though I went through different website I saw different testimonies about different spell casters and herbalist, I was like: 'Many people have the herpes cure why are people still suffering from it?' I though of it, then I contact Dr. Abumere via email, I didn't believe him that much, I just wanted to give him a try, he replied my mail and Needed some Information about me, then I sent them to him, he prepared it (CURE) and sent it to Airfreight Online Courier Service for delivery, he gave my details to the Courier Office, they told me that 3-5 days I will receive the package and i took the medicine as prescribed by him and I went for check-up 2 weeks after finishing the medicine, I was tested herpes negative, if you are herpes positive do me a favor for you to contact him and I will try my possible best to make sure you get cured, when you contact him, make sure you tell him that I referenced you.. contact him via: [email protected] or WhatsApp +2349021975055

  4. Stop drinking alcohol and even caffeine!! These are the only drugs you are taking, and doctors will never tell you this useful information. Look up how dangerous these drugs are, and you will see the cause to most health issues/illness.
