A Gynecologist's diabetes reversal success story
Free from medicine, 13 kg weight loss - truly happy
- Name- Dr. Gayetri Chandrashekhar Radhakrishna
- Age- 61 years
- Profession- Gynecologist
- Place - Mysore, India
One of my friends who was an FFD participant insisted I join FFD. And I feel it was the best thing that happened.
I'm Dr. Gayetri Chandrashekhar Radhakrishna, a gynecologist by profession, from Mysore. Medical history-wise, I have a family history; my mother was diabetic. So, I was quite aware that I might get it someday.
How did I come to know about my diabetes?
I diagnosed my condition myself. While doing BSL, I found out I had Diabetes, almost 11 years ago.
Health issues I faced
I had a frozen shoulder even before being diagnosed with diabetes. No major complications. Managed my diabetes with Metformin. Was never very regular in monitoring sugar levels.
I would do post-prandial blood sugars whenever I ate lots of sweets. Sugar levels never went high but my HbA1c would be in the 6.7 range. One more issue I faced was bad gastritis which I attribute to my stressful profession.
How did I get to know about FFD?
One of my friends whom I met after a long time had lost significant weight. On inquiry, she told me about FFD and how her husband was off insulin. She insisted I join and so I joined FFD.

Freedom from Diabetes journey
I learned Freedom from Diabetes conducts an online introductory session named Discover Reversal Session which I attended first.
After getting an overall idea about how diabetes reversal happens I immediately joined the FFD diabetes reversal program HTP batch 79. The HTP program is based on 4 protocols - diet, exercise, inner transformation, and medical assistance.
The initial few weeks were difficult but later I adjusted. I lost weight and was off Metformin in just 7 days. Interestingly, I didn't have to do any fasting. When I joined FFD, I was 73 kg, and now I am 60 kg.
I feel good. I followed up to 90 percent of the FFD diet but could not follow it while traveling. I am fairly regular with the recommended diet and will join the gym soon. Many people ask me how I lost weight.
I explain to them what diet I have. I, myself am very much satisfied with my progress with FFD. I have also recommended some of my PCOS patients join FFD. I am sure they will benefit.
