    Don't let your doctor tell you that a HbA1c above 5.6 is "ok" or "close enough". At those levels you are doing permanent damage to every small artery in your body, from the arteries in your eyes to the ones in you kidneys. You must fix your diet to fix your diabetes!

    Im a 16 year old male, and I was today years old when I found Im at a HUGE RISK for diabetes, I weigh 228 lbs and suffer from many of the symptoms. Fuck this my doctor told me That I was "okay" I'm literally killing myself and the worst part is nobody is telling me. Thanks a lot doc we need more ethical people like you

    Brilliant video, Doc! I LOVE your forthrightness in telling it 'like it is' – no holds barred, emphasising the SERIOUSNESS of the condition and the responsibility of the PATIENT to cure themselves! I have come to the conclusion that with the exception of emergency medicine (at which they are brilliant) and reconstructive surgery (at which they are brilliant), most MDs are practising QUACK MEDICINE – trying to treat chronic illness as a DEFICIENCY OF MAGIC PATENT PHARMA PILLS. In fairness to MDs, they are in a difficult position – many are still BRAINWASHED by Drug Industry hype, fraud and pseudoscience, and those MDs that have realised the irrationality of this approach are often unable to change direction because their livelihood depends on them continuing to practise "Magic Pharma Pill" medicine. However, I remain optimistic. MDs ARE waking up, and this awakening is gathering momentum. Your final point – that MDs should WELCOME patients who research the internet and are interested in healing themselves – is very well made.

    Been keto for 6 months now. Have not done any blood work in years ( ya ya, I know….lol). I'm going to wait a few more months on keto before getting all metrics checked out, IF I can find a keto friendly doctor.

    I'd like to know if your average daily glucose measurement as say, per the keto mojo meter over a 120 days time would in any way be reflective of an A1c test? I believe the A1c is a percent of sugar in the hemoglobin over the past 3 months? Is that correct?
    So, would not my daily glucose readings averaged out over a 120 day time period effectively be the same thing, or close to it?

    My fasting blood glucose was 4.3 this morning. Average now over the past 2 weeks is 5.3 (mmol…. got the meter set to mmol to make the GKI calculation quickly) Am now 'experimenting' to see how the numbers change, lol.

    I really don't care what the numbers were before. Today is all that counts and I just want to know I'm on the right path. Age 65, modified keto for bodybuilding. Much more protein. Still, have lost way too much weight, lol. From 194 in January to now 145 lbs in July! (5'9" tall)
    Most of that weight was lost the 1st 4 weeks…..
    Keto was done for inflammation/joint pain & psoriasis control (the weight loss has taken me by surprise, lol), and it's been great for that in all areas. Not cured, but wow… major differences that I have not seen on my skin in many long years.
    Keto rocks doc, and you are one of the best! Thanks for all of the great information.

    Here's my story. Back in March of this year, I was going to have some dental work done, but the dentist took my blood pressure and it was 190/130 (no dental work done). I was told to go to the emergency room immediately. When I got there, it had risen over 200/130. I was immediately given blood thinners and blood pressure medicines, then admitted. During my short stay, not only did I find out that had 2 heart attacks, one in the emergency room and the second during a stress test, I had one some time in the past and all three times, I never knew I had them. I also found out that I was Type 2 Diabetic. At that time I weighed 320 lbs. After I was released, I was determined to get my diabetes to go into remission and get my cholesterol under control. After some research for low carb recipes, I discovered the Keto diet and I'm happy to say that I am now considered 'at risk' for type 2 diabetes, my cholesterol level is under 100, the heart is doing great and I have lost over 40 lbs.

    My A-1C is high and l.m going to see a doctor to find out what foods l should be eating and Not be eating in about 2 weeks.
    I was told by my doctor to eat whole wheat 100% or whole grain bread l do drink water everyday and plenty of it and l also drink apple cider vinegar 2 tablespoon in green tea with lemon a wedge and cinnamon and fresh ginger 3 slices an a little honey once to 2 times
    a day.
    Is this good to drink this 2 or 3 times a day.?
    l was drinking this tea 3 times a day or mixing the ACV in my 100% pink grape fruit juice with cinnamon and pinch pepper everyday is this good to drink everyday this many times.?
    It helped me lose weights as well so very helpful to me or should l do less .?
    Thank you for any feed back.

    You do NOT want your HBA1C to go extremely low. There are limits. HBA1C below 4% is associated with an increase in all-cause mortality after following 14,099 patients after a decade. This fact is supported by the study entitled "Low Hemoglobin A1c and Risk of All-Cause Mortality Among US Adults Without Diabetes"

    the study concludes with the following:
    In this nationally representative cohort, low HbA1c (<4%) was associated with increased all-cause mortality among US adults without diabetes. Additional research is needed to confirm these results and identify potential mechanisms that may be underlying this association.

    My husband was admitted into the hospital his sugar reading was off the chart, the first reading was 700. He was sent home and now I'm trying to see what food would adjust his sugar level. It's still reading above 200. He was given pills to take every morning. Could you tell me what foods I need to be having him eat to get this sugar level where it need to be. The nutrition just tells me to give him an balance meal which I'm trying to mix to see what spikes his sugar. Should he just be on green vegetables and protein

  9. Lynell Powell

    Can you please answer my question. My husband is a type 2 diabetic. We have been doing low carb for months. He is not fat, weight is about 215. He hasn’t lost any weight, and I’ve lost about 70. I’m larger than him. I lose very slow no matter what I do. This summer while out of school I’ve walked 4 -5 miles a day and the scale hasn’t moved. His A1C was up to 10, we’ve gotten it with med and eating to 8.1. We recently started the method on your video, no artificial sugar, natural and I’ve done the fasting as well. His sugar this morning was 203, during the day it comes down to normal or closer, but spikes over night. How can we fix this and why does my scales not move regardless.

  10. the III

    Dr Berry, I have been type 2 diabetic for over 20 years now and only was getting worse never better. I'm 57 year old male and 4 months ago my weight was 246.
    I started intermittent fasting and low carb, very little to no sugar diet and lost 41lbs. Sugar levels came down but still not to normal.
    Here is my problem. I was able to come off lantus(25 units a day) but when I stop my glimepiride(2mg once a day) my daily glucose readings are staying in the 160s and higher with spikes when I eat and even in the last 3 to 4 hours of my 16 hr fast.
    I'm really disappointed and confused as to why I'm not having the same results as others. Working out, doing HIIT workouts 3 times a week and still dealing with high glucose numbers.
    Having family issues that are causing high stress, could this be why? Is there anyone else having this same problem? Please advise.

  11. the III

    Dr Berry, let add that my ignorance and my doctor's incompetence when it comes to type 2 diabetes comes at a great cost.
    I was diagnosed at age 36. First heart attack at 46, second at 48 in the widow maker. Stints were used in both. Quadruple bypass, pacemaker and defibrillator done at age 55.
    Thanks for all your advise, I'm felling better than I have in 30 years. Your videos are a God send to all of us who are waking up to the fact that we have to take our health into our on hands and use Dr's as consultants not health managers.

    i have mentall illness the government gives me very little money to live on forcing me to eat pasta every day for years i get teh pasta for one dollar a box and i put very little sauce on it i beleive i now have type 2 diabetes

    Does drinking milk affect sugar alot? Should i be worried about drinking it? My dad is diabetic, can he drink milk? Sry if thats alot of question

  14. Meya Enyo

    Wait I was told it can't be reversed once you get it. I honestly thought diet soda would be fine but just learned it damages me, so I've stopped dr4inking it now.

  15. Lena

    I dont care what anyone says, YOU CANNOT REVERSE DIABETES. All your doing is changing your eating lifestyle, but you will always be a diabetic. If on a whim you decide to indulge in a day of sweets, your blood sugar will still rise bc your pancreas does not work properly…and yes I am a diabetic myself since the age of 12.

  16. Pheanixs

    Thank God I found your video! I am a Holistic Nutritionist and I've been trying to get it across to all these people with type 2 diabetes that they have to change their diet! No sugar no carbs.I live in Vancouver BC and if you go to the Diabetes Association website and check out the diets that they recommend it's absolutely atrocious! Full of carbs!I will be sending lots of clients to listen to your videos. Thanks so much for caring and being honest!

  17. Shirrell Johnson

    Thank you Dr Berry, I was told that my glucose levels are now 6.5 so I have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and its not something I wanted to hear, I have been a bit depressed and withdrawn from people since I lost a well paying job and have not been able to find something that pays any livable wage so food became my friend. I didn't care what I ate, it made me feel better, but now I have eaten myself into a disease,that I'm not claiming, I'm going to do everything in my power to rid myself of this title. And with the information you just shared with me I'm on my way. One other thing, I have been experiencing some numbness on my (R) foot in a few of my toes, can you tell me what that means? I'm concerned about this.

  18. Rick T.

    Dr. Berry… You’re saving more lives than you’ll ever know. Sadly, there are hundreds of thousands more who remain ill-informed and will continue to die. I share your videos to as many people I know who struggle with Diabetes and obesity. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for what you do.

  19. Annmarie Yorke

    Hi Dr. Berry I love your videos they are very informative you are talking truth some of the doctors only give you a bandage to cover the wound and the wound is getting worse and there is cure for the wound but they just keep giving you the bondage I am a type 2 diebetic and I started to do my dietary changes thank you for your knowledge I am trying to get my A1C down to 5.3 through dietary changes.

  20. Cheryl Allison

    Dr Berry I am a type 2 diabetic and 80 lbs overweight. I want to start doing water fasts. I would like to start with a 3 day fast. Can you respond and do a video on this topic. Please include what supplements that I should include. My intention is autophagy and curing my diabetes. Thank you!

  21. Randy Cross

    Following Dr Berry's advice for 2 years now…Yesterday my A1C came back at 5.5 down from 6.0 two years ago…My triglycerides have dropped in half. My HDL is up substantially. Lost over 40 pounds of fat. KETO and intermittent fasting works. Thank You Dr Berry. Love your book too.

    Doc, my last A1C was 8 months ago and was 5.2% I’ve been on and off keto. Yesterday I ate a lot of bread and took my blood glucose today fasted. It was 123. This seems high. Is this something I should be concerned of?

  25. Clayton Sackett

    I was diagnosed with T2D on 5/19/2019 with an A1c of 9.6%, weighing 260lbs.

    My 2 month follow up: A1c of 5.9%, weighing 216lbs.

  27. Joe Wellingtonappraisal

    Thank you Doctor Berry, MD for possibly saving my life, or at the very least saving me from future years of illness brought on by the effects of diabetes.  The information in your video provided me both the encouragement and insightfulness into reversing diabetes.  Information and encouragement that neither my doctor nor my dietitian were able to provide.  You see, 3 months ago I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes (A1C level of 11.0).  I immediately turned to the internet to get more information on my diagnosis and treatment.  With the grace of god, I stumbled upon your video, which equipped me with the knowledge to reversing by diabetes. I'm extremely proud to say, all thanks to you, I have gone from an A1C level of 11.0 to 4.9 in 3 months.  My weight as declined from 215.6 lbs to 189.4 lbs, and I'm off my blood pressure pills.  My life style will never go back to what it was.  You mostly, and a few other youtubers, and William Davis, MD (his preface in Wheat Belly Cookbook – the facts about Wheat), were my sources of encouragement and guidance, when my wife and many others were so skeptical.  I will always be indebted to you.

  29. Rebecca Morgan

    Listen to this man!! my A1c was 12.7 two years ago, i quit eating carbs and have lost 80 pounds and im no longer diabetic, my last A1c was 5.3

  30. wanda spencer

    hello dr Berry i have a qusetion i have type2 and is a low carb or a keto best to control high sugar levels i had a vgs in 2010 and gained about 30 pounds over this time amd it wont budge also i used to take metiformin 500 myself for a long time but was unawheare of that b12

  31. Mad Bull

    Dr. Berry, I have been watching a lot of your videos and been eating low carb. I lost some weights for sure. Sugar readings have got better too. My question is once my type 2 diabetes is reversed and my A1C becomes in the normal range, can I eat some stuff like I used to like rice and noodles and spaghetti and some desserts. It's been hard. Don't know how others went through but it's sure difficult for me. When my diabetes is reversed, I hope it's permanent. Or do I have to keep staying low carb or keto for the rest of my life? Thanks.

  32. Travelog

    Is taking aspirin with statin okay in a long term? What are the side effects? How could I avoid taking blood thinner and not at risk of stroke.

  33. BriAnime’s World

    I've read articles stating there is correlation between women having full hysterectomy, low thyroid and type 2 diabetes. What are you thoughts on this? My mother has all 3. I have her on iodine and selenium and her A1C and blood sugar have lowered.

  34. Matt Jones

    Nearly 4 months ago a random blood test showed my A1C to be 106mmol/mol (sorry, we do things different in the UK) which is way up near the top of the chart, I had heard that people manage to reverse their Diabetes, so found yours (and others) videos on here, coming from a fitness industy background, and remembering reading Lyle McDonalds book, I decided to try Keto, and after watching your videos, I backed this up with some Intermittent fasting (which was easy on Keto, I was never hungry!) – Anyway, to cut a long story short, in just over 3 months I achieved 75lbs weight loss, My hba1c has gone from 106mmol/mol to 39!! The Doctor (who was very dismissive of lifestyle change) couldn't believe it. Also other markers she was concerned about (lipids, Liver…pretty much everything) have all gone from "urgent action required" to normal, So glad I refused to take that Statin! Thank you for your advice, sincerely.

    Had a lab drawn 1 week ago and my total creatine kinase was 469 ,this has me concerned as the range is 0-235 u/l. I had eaten a lot of Mexican food 3 hrs before.

  36. Donna Mason

    Awesome job. Thanks so much for sharing and caring. Does a sea salt flush help? How bout juicing celery, carrots and any other juicing

  37. Jon Treffert

    At age 60 I reversed my type 2 diabetes – my story is here on YouTube. Although my diet and lifestyle was the cause – I do wish that urgency you suggest from the medical community at the first sign of elevated sugars would have been conveyed – I could have made my change before damage was done.

  38. Lea Martin

    Dr. Berry, I just had a test done from my endocrinologist and my glucose is 102 and my insulin B chain is 29.8. What does the insulin B chain level mean?

  39. Lynda Pope

    Love your directness, and so true. its funny my text book i have to study says to increase whole grains which is funny because they come in the form of starches and sugars so the opposite to what we need.

  40. Jim Moody

    When diagnosed 6 years ago my Dr who has been a Atkins proponent for years handed me a pamphlet and told me to lose weight and all my health problems will be solved. HBP, Cholesterol, A1C. 6 mos moderate carbs low calorie diet and exercise I lost 55 pounds and kept it off. A1C went from 6.8 to 5.8 without meds. I went Keto last year and 5.1 no meds. Our diet is truly killing us. I have not used Keto to lose weight just glucose control. It works for that. The main benefit is hunger control. I just don't need to eat often or large portions. I don't count calories and still exercise.

  41. Luvin Itall

    I realise that this video is nearly 2 years old and maybe now you have better understanding but …

    Please STOP claiming to be able to cure Type 2 Diabetes. It's quite simply false.
    Type 2 Diabetes is in essence a condition whereby the body becomes Insulin Resistant. No amount of diet or exercise will remove that Insulin Resistance.
    Diet can reduce your carb / sugar intake but it does not change the way your body uses Insulin to process glucose. Similarly exercise can help your body to process carbs and glucose stores faster but again it is NOT stopping your body from being Insulin Resistant.

    To claim that diet and exercise are a cure for Type 2 Diabetes is like saying that you've cured a rapist by locking them away from potential victims: they're not cured – sure, you've prevented the undesirable result but the underlying condition still remains.

    And not all diabetes is weight-related: mine's genetic. So again, diet is not a cure.

  42. Luvin Itall

    I realise that this video is now 2 years old and maybe you now have a better understanding of Type 2 Diabetes but please …

    This is false and unethical.
    Type 2 Diabetes is a condition whereby the body becomes Insulin Resistant and so cannot process carbs / glucose normally. Type 2 Diabetes is not stroke, loss of eye-sight or fingers or toes, etc., … Type 2 Diabetes is Insulin Resistance.

    While I'm in total agreement with you that diet and exercise are healthy and key to MANAGING Type 2 Diabetes …
    Diet merely serves to reduce the carb / sugar intake while exercise increases the rate of burning carb stores for energy. Both diet and exercise help to reduce the glucose that the body needs to process – therefore avoiding the issue with Insulin Resistance and avoiding the glucose being dumped into the blood stream.

    Claiming to be able to cure Type 2 Diabetes via diet and / or exercise is like claiming to be able to cure a paedophile by locking them in a room alone. All you've done is avoid the end-result.
    Paedophile + child = rape
    Insulin Resistance + carbs / sugar = Type 2 Diabetes issues

    Removing carbs / sugar and children simply removes B from the equation. It does not address the underlying condition of A.

    Like so many conditions (bipolar, clinical depression, alcoholism, drug addiction, etc., …): it cannot be cured – simply managed and hopefully avoided.

    And not all Type 2 Diabetics have weight issues. Mine is genetic and, as my Dr told me, I'm not overweight so I can't fix this by losing weight.

    There are a large number of female doctors a more inclusive use of pronouns would be wonderful. For example “they” when describing male and female doctors.

  44. Tatiana Neyra

    Doctor Berry, my husband is over weight and diabetic. He is having his blood work fasting next week. Any important tests we need to ask the doctor?

  45. Heidi Samuel

    Yes! It is reversible! I've done it! You are the best doctor! Thanks for your honesty and for getting this truthful information out there!

  46. AsILoveMyself ILoveYou

    Hello (Doctor?) Berry. I have T2D and I agree with everything you and an exponentially growing number of physicians are now concluding, which is that T2D IS REVERSIBLE and that insulin actually make T2D (Insulin Resistance) WORSE. Just a little 'heads-up' though: You can have much more credence (& more people take you completely seriously), if you STOP wearing your stethoscope around your neck ! No 'real' doctors do that anymore. It's like saying "Look at me, I'm a doctor. I know what I'm doing & pretty clever". We know that doctors just have ability to remember symptoms, diagnose patients & BLINDLY prescribe med(s) as per their COMPLETELY OUTDATED training. We are hopefully going to change that and STOP T2D pandemic which current treatment is failing to do.

  47. queenfan69

    Dr Berry what are your thoughts on family history of heart disease and diabetes? I've always been told I can't get away from the family history of both of these diseases. I am a borderline diabetic and am on 2 high blood pressure meds. I started the keto lifestyle 2 weeks ago and stopped taking my metformin. I have lost 12# and my blood sugar is consistently below 100 at all times of the day. I feel fantastic!

  48. Валентина Онуфриенковская

    I figured out “Vαnοjο Fivu” (Google it) from my good friend and read it to shed weight as well as treat my diabetes. I had been following firm exercise as well as diet plan. I had been able to reduce Thirty five points from my blood sugar levels right after a day on the diet system. Right after Four days, I lost 60 points from my blood glucose levels. It`s been efficient for me personally. I`m very pleased that I managed to stabilize my blood sugar levels..

  49. Jay Litton

    I had been clinically determined to have diabetes almost a year ago. I`m presently Sixty-four years old. Getting diabetes is a distress for me personally, and also the fact that I will be suffering the effects of diabetes like my father. The good news is, I have found this excellent guide “Vαnοjο Fivu” (Google it). The main test outcomes show that my glucose was at 183 and my A1C was 7.3. I read the program carefully for a week and now my A1C dropped to 5.9…

  50. Anna Hall

    I'm on keto now for 3 weeks. My fasting glucose is around 150. Is this normal in the beginning? Even though I have absolutely no carbs in my diet, except for the ones from veggies. I keep my daily carbs under 20 grams. And yes, I'm type 2 diabetic.

  51. George Wilson

    and yet another Dr seeking to scare diabetics, they already know the complications that can happen, there is know need to keep repeating the scare stories. Mr Negative.

  52. patti kurtz

    I am very glad I found your channel I was told a few weeks ago I am a type 2 I have never been before . My doctor who said she was watching was doing just that watching it go from a good level to a 7.1 level . I am doing research like crazy to find out what I need to do to get this gone for good . so any help I will take and any advice I would love I have gone from a 12 pack of soda down to one a day if that some times I am not even doing that . I have subscribed to your channel because I want to do whatever I have to to get this gone .

  54. Mr. Cool Breeze

    What he failed to tell you is that you should stop drinking Alcohol, and Sodas. In order to improve your Liver and Kidneys. Don't eat Cane Sugar, use Splenda Sugar instead and stop Smoking. Those are some of the things that can make things worse for you with Type 2 Diabetes. Eat more Vegetables and to lay off of White Bread which is high in Carbohydrates and Fat. Don't drink Fruit Punches, but you can drink your own Lemonade, Tea, and Coffee with Splenda Sugar not the Powder kind but the Sugar blend. Since I have been to the Doctor for my Check ups after I was Hopitalized. My Blood Sugar was around 1,400 when I had went to the ER from drinking Fruit Juices and Eating Snickers bars, I have had a good report. The Doctor told my that everything has improved a lot. I went to the Eye Doctor because I needed some new Glasses and Cotact Lenses, the Eye Examiner told me that I did not have Diabetes. So it's really about putting good food in you body and staying away from bad foods that can make you sick. Drinking more Water will help your Liver and Kidneys.

Im praying for him to God and I want to belive and have no doubt in God but Im human and I just keep having doubts. Please do pray for my dad if you can please. It would be appreciated if done.
