Then, I picked up Dr. Mark Hyman’s book Blood Sugar Solution. In it, he explains how common allergens like gluten, dairy, alcohol, and caffeine affect our bodies, even if we’re not technically allergic. Certain foods are more likely to cause inflammation, which is a stress response that the body produces when we are fighting off something. A little inflammation helps you heal and then goes away, a ton of it hurts you and becomes constant. Inflammation and insulin resistance go hand in hand, and one of the ways to combat diabetes is to remove the triggering foods.
To Mr. Dewayne McCulley, I just wanted to say thank you for this wonderful book called: “Death to Diabetes”. … This book is based on the medical research and experiences of Mr. Dewayne McCulley (an ex-diabetic engineer), who reversed and defeated his diabetes within 3.5 months. I call it “the book from the heavens” as it restores health at all levels if followed properly. … Mr. McCulley brought to all of us the “Awakening”. It is time for us … get this book and work on it.

Deciding to do a longer detox or adopting a prolonged low-sugar or no-sugar diet (after speaking with your healthcare provider first) could help you improve your health beyond simply targeting sugar. You may realize that you finally need to correct other lifestyle choices that cause fatigue, like poor sleep hygiene, or even take a look at your hormone levels in a screening with your doctor.
Finding a meal plan that fits your lifestyle can be difficult, depending on your overall goals.

However, you can make the process much easier by participating in the program outlined by the 6-Week Diabetes Detox Guidebook.
I had also reduced my insulin dosage from 4 shots, 60 units of insulin (Humalog and Lantus) a day down to 1 shot, 10 units (only Lantus). By my next doctor’s appointment, I was down to zero shots and a zero insulin dosage. But, my endocrinologist was not happy and told me to return to my original insulin dosage. He said that since I was going through the “honeymoon period”, my blood sugar would eventually return to the high levels and I would have to go back on insulin.
