I will begin with just a little history. I am a 68 year old female who, through routine lab results, 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! I was very familiar with diabetic care as we had a son that was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at age 7, so though the treatment for Type 1 is very different than for Type 2, I knew the importance of diabetic care and diet. I found myself now planning for my own self with diet and medicine.
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. I immediately enrolled in the hospital’s dietician program and learned the ADA food plan for Type 2 diabetes. This had me on 45 carbs per meal and two 15 carb snacks a day for total of 165 carbs a day along with 30 minutes of exercise daily. Initially, I did lose some weight but as the years went by, I found my A1C beginning to go up from 7.0% . As my A1C moved up, I was given more metformin and once weekly a shot, Bydureon, which cost me close to $300 a month as my insurance did not cover but only a small portion of this cost. After another year on this, my A1C’s continued to go up and I began having muscle stiffness and terrible pain. After consulting with my doctor, he felt my reactions were due to possibility a combination of Lisinopril, Simvastatin and metformin and the years I had been on it. I immediately stopped all medication. Even though treatment of diabetes was his primary part of his practice, I asked my doctor to refer me to an Endocrinologist as decided I needed an Endocrinologist who specialized in the treatment of Diabetes. Dr Bhakti Paul’s name was given to me as she had helped a lady in a similar condition. Dr Paul was in great demand and I had a month to wait for an appointment. At this point, I am in terrible pain and in desperate need of help.
On my first visit with Dr Paul, she listened and reviewed my symptoms with me and did blood work. To begin with, she started me on a Jardiance tablet daily if my blood sugar was 150 or higher and low carbs with intermitting fasting. This approach immediately began to improve my condition. After reviewing my stats, she agreed that I did not need the Lisinopril nor Simvastatin. To begin with, I started the intermittent fasting and low carb diet. I was amazed with the change within 2 weeks of doing this! My A1C had gone up to 9.4 on 1/11/19. I followed exactly what Dr Paul suggested I do and within a few months as of 5/2/19, my A1C dropped to 6.7! I achieved this with taking only a few Jardiance tablets; losing 25 pounds and 5” in my waist, all since January 2019 and this is May 4, 2019! 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 fingerticks 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 fingersticks and gives an overall reading that I remotely upload and send to Dr Paul for her review daily. 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 exercise and weekly, I lose close to one pound per week and my blood sugar is very controlled and will continue to improve to the point of no medication and improved health , if I continue to follow this approach. This is not only hope and encouragement to a diabetic, it is freedom and health without medications!
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…. and how?? Begin your journey to be set free and healthy with Dr Paul!
I am forever thankful to you, Dr Paul!

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.

"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. A week later, 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"
