well-thee now, My 7 step de-prescribing plan
Glucose Sensitivity Test
The first question to answer is at your current metabolic health, can you skip any or all of your diabetic medications if you also skip the carbohydrates for 1 week? And can it be done safely? The answer is Absolutely. This is where I will instruct you on using a continuous glucose monitor along with a detailed diet plan and will remotely monitor your numbers to assure your safety.
When and how to re-introduce carbohydrates?
The continuous glucose monitor will give us valuable insight on when you are most sensitive and resistant to carbs. I will review my 4 cardinal rules on reintroducing carbs without compromising your diabetes or resuming medications. If you do need medication temporarily, I will review the right medication for you at a cost you can afford and will start with the lowest dose.
Introduce Time Restricted Eating
One of the key benefits of eating low carb is significant decrease in body hunger creating the perfect opportunity to implement time restricted eating to further improve hyperinsulinemia and insulin resistance. I will identify the right intermittent fasting plan based on your body type and glucose pattern and will guide you on how to successfully achieve it.
Is it Yummy Hunger or Tummy Hunger?
We will explore various triggers, events and places that make you want to eat. Excessive, mindless eating has a direct impact on our physical and emotional health. I will help you understand how you can use hunger and fullness cues to promote mindful eating and help you design and strategize a non-food action plan during those vulnerable times when you are drawn to food outside of true hunger.
Using physical activity as a powerful glucose lowering tool
An active skeletal muscle is like a pick up for glucose and lowers glucose and best of all it does it in an insulin independent manner. I will instruct you on how you can successfully lower your glucose with the right physical activity.

I will begin with just a little history. I am a 68 year old female who was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes in November 2009. This honestly came as a shock to me as I really had not experienced any of the normal symptoms but found my A1C was 10.4! From 2009 to 2018, I was treated the traditional method of metformin, lisinopril and simvastatin. Even though I didn’t have a cholesterol or blood pressure problem; I was told that I needed this medication as a preventative care measure since I had Type 2 diabetes. As the years went by, I found my A1C rising and I was given more metformin and once weekly shot, Bydureon, which cost me close to $300 a month. After another year on this, my A1C’s continued to go up and he refered me to to an endocrinologist. On my first visit with Dr Paul, she listened and reviewed my symptoms with me and did blood work. I started Dr. Paul's plan and stopped most of my diabetic medications right away under her supervision. I was amazed with the change within a week of doing this! My A1C of 9.4 dropped to 6.7! and lost 25 pounds and 5” in my waist in 5 months! I am on no medications. This was amazing to me and has given me such hope and encouragement as I continue with her method of approach. I have followed her treatment as she has suggested and she has very closely monitored me and I have had great results! Dr Paul prescribed the Freestyle 14 day Libre Blood monitoring sensor system instead of the fingerstick that I was doing. I love this system as it continually records my blood sugar readings with a quick scan of my blood sensor! It is much easier than fingerstick and gives an overall reading that DrPaul can review remotely and give me feedback. Dr Paul’s approach to treating and eventually eliminating the need for medication to control diabetes is certainly “outside the box” when comparing to traditional treatment methods and medication, but, the difference in her approach is that it the most successful approach I have ever seen and experienced! I am continuing to do low carbs with balanced eating; doing intermittent fasting and exercising weekly. Thank you, Dr Paul for your close supervision and guidance in my health and I recommend her treatment and approach to anyone who has Diabetes and wants to be free from the traditional diabetic treatment of more and more amounts of medication. I am forever thankful to you, Dr Paul!

"I went to the ER because of intense fatigue and was shocked to find out that my glucose was 1072! I was diagnosed with diabetes and was also found to be in Diabetic ketoacidosis. I was sent home on long acting insulin 40 units a day and short acting insulin 12units with each meal. I saw Dr. Paul 3 weeks later. She reviewed a low carb diet with me and prescribed the continuous glucose monitor to monitor my progress. She stopped all my insulin. My A1C was 11.3 at the ER. A week into Dr. Paul’s plan, my average glucose was 116 and 100% of my readings were in my target range. 2 months later, my A1C had dropped to 5.8! This is on no medications. I have reversed my diabetes and look forward to coming off other medications as well with her dietary plan"

I was on over 160 units of insulin a day and still struggling with my diabetes. At our initial visit, Dr. Paul customized a diet and fasting plan based on my preferences and stopped all my insulin. She also kept an eye on my sugars remotely since I was wearing the sensor which reassured me tremendously. She provided encouragement and support through out that first week. My daily average readings dropped from upper 200s to low 100s within 24 hours and have stayed that way. I have never looked back. I am very grateful to finally find a doctor who truly cares about my wellbeing. She certainly went way beyond my prescriptions. The 10 pound weight loss and loosing 1 inch around my waist in one week was an icing on the cake.

A few months ago, I had been told by my doctor that I had 4 weeks to show definite effort in bringing down my cholesterol and triglycerides. That meant rigorous exercise and diet or else I would be prescribed medication as I had bad levels for many years now. Being averse to both the solutions, I was not looking forward to the next few weeks. Dr B. Paul was a blessing at the right time! Her explanation was very simple and with her encouragement and hand-holding, the diet was easy to follow. In 3 weeks, my cholesterol and triglycerides were normal! It was amazing as I had never seen such levels in over 10 years! I’m sticking to the diet as I feel better all the time. I can’t be grateful enough for her solution and stay off medication.
