Pawan Kumar Pandey : An ex-serviceman's success story
Medicine and insulin stopped!
- Name- Mr. Pawan Kumar Pandey
- Age- 62 Years Young
- Profession- Ex-Serviceman
- Place - Navi Mumbai
I'm Pawan Kumar Pandey, from Navi Mumbai. I was in the Indian Navy for 18 yrs and then on in the Merchant Navy for 23.
Why did I join FFD?
I always resisted taking medicines and somewhere deep down wished to be free from them.
How was my diabetes diagnosed?
I was absolutely okay till I was in the Indian Navy.
Sometime in 2002 soon after joining the Merchant Navy, I started having fluctuating sugar levels and was started on a small dose of medicine.
For around 20 years, while in active service I was looked after well by my Diabetologist. Post-retirement, as the activities reduced, sugars rose. It came as a shock when I was told to start insulin.
It was my daughter through whom I came to know about Dr. Pramod Tripathi and the FFD program.

"The whole concept of daily monitoring the sugar level journey was amazing for me." As I started following the protocols, my medicines were steadily reduced. By the end of April, all 5 tablets were stopped.
Weight loss has been incredible. From 86-87 kg, I reduced to 67 kg and now I am at 61-62 kg. A total of 16 odd kgs.
"The reduction in waist size has been unbelievable, at 10 inches."
"It is a great feeling to become free of diabetic medicines." I found the FFD team to be very caring.
- Medicine freedom
- 16 kg weight loss with 10 inches around the waist!
