"Finally Making Some Progress!"
Paul (72) had been struggling to get his diabetes under control for years. Despite staying thin, rowing twice a week and trying a range of different diabetic drugs, nothing had really worked for him.
But after adding SmarterNaturally Soup to his diet for a few months, Paul’s blood sugars have fallen and his diabetes is now finally considered ‘well controlled’!
A Diabetic Diagnosis
“I was diagnosed as diabetic aged 53 through a routine health checkup. My father had diabetes, so I always expected I would become diabetic at some point myself too.
The usual advice about changing your lifestyle didn’t do it for me. I wasn’t overweight, and I was already getting lots of exercise (rowing twice a week on the Thames, and walking the dog twice a day) – though I wasn’t following any special diet and I have always had a bit of a sweet tooth!”
Giving Soup a Go
“So my doctor told me I needed to go onto medication to control my blood sugar levels. I tried various different options over the years, but I struggled to find one that worked for me: some gave me awful side effects, such as stomach aches and other reactions; others caused me to lose a huge amount of weight and left me as just skin and bone; and some just didn’t do a great job of helping me control my blood sugar levels!
Then I heard about SmarterNaturally soup through a friend. I was still struggling with managing my diabetes, so I thought I’d give it a go. When I suggested trying it my diabetic nurse laughed – but said why not, as it couldn’t do me any harm so I might as well try it!”
“At my next test (3 months later) we were both expecting my blood sugar level to have gone up – but actually it had dropped quite significantly! She was as surprised as I was, and asked whether I’d made any changes to my lifestyle – the only change I’d made was adding a weekly bowl of SmarterNaturally Soup into my diet.
Thanks to a combination of the medication I’m on and this soup, my HbA1c is now down at 51 mmol/mol – a 3-point drop from where it was a few months ago. That means my diabetes is now considered ‘well-controlled’, which is a huge achievement after struggling with it for so many years.”
Saved by a Soup
“I’ve never found anything else that has reduced my blood sugar other than drugs, so it’s nice to find a natural solution that’s made a real difference and works in conjunction with everything else I’m doing.
If I can maintain my blood sugars at this level through a combination of medications and this soup, that would be tremendous!”
Sticking with SmarterNaturally
“Given the benefits I’ve seen to my diabetic health, I’ll definitely keep going with my weekly bowls of this soup. It’s become a nice part of my routine: I have it for lunch on Saturday mornings when I get in from rowing, which is perfect as it’s nice and filling, and tastes good with a good dose of salt and black pepper added in!
For those out there that are looking to get their blood sugar level under control, I’d definitely recommend giving it a go and seeing if it works for you too!”
