I am 53 y. o. I have been suffering from myocarditis, hypertension,
type I diabetes and hepatitis for the last 14 years. Every year I
was in hospital. I also had pericarditis for three months in 1996.
My ESR was elevated - 50/70 after one hour. I always had inflamation
and temperature. Heart operation was imminent. I am on optimal diet
for three months and the results are very good. Insulin which I had
been taking 36 units daily I discontinued from the first day on the
diet. At present, there is no sugar in urine and blood sugar is in
the norm. I do not have inflamation and temperature. My ESR dropped
to 5. Unfortunately, I still have hypertension, chaotic heart, pain
in hip joints when I walk and the worst -still something wrong with
my kidneys and I have proteins in urine. Please advise. Am I doing
something wrong? Attached please find my hospital card and analysis.
R. F. from Jaworzno
to the hospital record from 1996 you had diabetes, diabetic kidney
impairment, chronic kidney insufficiency, infection of urinary system,
acute myocarditis, complex heart defect, auricular fibrillation,
hypertension, the presence of antigen hemoglobin S and mycosis.
You had very high diastolic blood pressure coming up to 210/190
( at present 205/105), creatinine was 150 mM - now 105 mM, ESR was
85 - now 5. Urea is not elevated. It was 8.7 and now 6.85. You had
anaemia, your Hb was 7.6% and now 15.6, erythrocytes were 2 780
000 and now you have 4 810 000, hematocrit reading was 26 and now
Diabetes type I according to the contemporary medicine is an incurable
disease. You stopped taking insulin (36 units) on the first day
of the diet and your body overcame diabetes on which you were sick
for 14 years. Your general health conditions had improved considerably
and laboratory analyses are more positive. You have succeeded, in
general, at the beginning of the diet only children taking up to
10 units of insulin and adults up to 20 units can stop taking insulin
in the first day. When the doses of insulin are higher, the intake
of insulin should be reduced to half (in your case to 18 units),
blood sugar and ketones in urine should be checked and gradually
decrease doses of insulin then discontinue the insulin injections.
Such high diastolic blood pressure has been caused by the excessive
production of compounds contracting arteries in the sick kidneys
which are trying to secure its better supply. Drop of the diastolic
blood pressure to 105it is a prove that kidney's efficiency has
improved. This is also confirmed by laboratory analysis. You will
feel better with every month, but you must not eat carbohydrates
more than 0.8 g/kg of your due weight. Hypertension should be gradually
reduced. When the body metabolism adjusts to the carbohydrates doses
recommended by optimal nutrition, every increase of carbohydrates
above 30 grams or reduction below 25 grams can cause a noxious symptom.
The doses of carbohydrates above 120 -150 g can cause the poison
symptom and high blood level of glucose which last for longer time.
Such behavior is unreasonable but sometimes happen.
