You have profound control over your A1c, or HbA1c, that reflects blood sugar fluctuations over the previous 60-90 days. Unfortunately, your doctor will likely know NOTHING about how to achieve this, opting instead for awful prescription drugs to manage blood sugar that come with substantial side-effects and cost and do not achieve as much benefit as natural methods. Once again, the natural way is dramatically SUPERIOR to the effects achieved by prescription drugs. Diets such as those advocated by the American Diabetes Association or low-fat “heart healthy” diets likewise do not reduce A1c and typically worsen this value, thereby causing deterioration in health.
Understand these basic issues and you can be enormously empowered to seize control over health, A1c, blood sugars, and aging despite the blundering of doctors and the healthcare system. It boils down to two general strategies:
- Eliminate foods that raise blood sugar—meaning grains and sugar
- Adopt strategies that normalize your body’s response to insulin
The A1c values we achieve on this lifestyle fall into the ideal range of 5.0% or less, levels associated with optimal health.
