- Name- Mrs. Sonia Fernandes
- Age- 47 Years Young
- Profession- Software Engineer
- Place - Madgaon, Goa
I'm Sonia Fernandes from Madgaon, Goa. I worked as a soft engineer earlier but now preparing for the launch of my own Fashion Designing Boutique.
My diabetes story
I have a strong history of diabetes on my paternal side with almost everybody suffering from it. So I was aware that I might have it someday. I was eating right, and working out in the gym but my job as a software engineer was a high-stress job that involved a lot of traveling and eating outside. This did take a toll on me.
I was suffering from severe asthma for six years. In the year 2018, I went for a full body checkup which disclosed me having fatty liver grade 1 with high sugars confirming diabetes. Also, my legs and ankles used to swell up. There was severe knee pain intermittently. I had difficulty walking.
How did FFD happen?
I first heard Dr. Pramod Tripathi's speech on diabetes and lifestyle disorders in an online program held in Goa. He was the guest speaker. I then followed him on Facebook and YouTube.
Why did I choose FFD?
FFD was already on my mind. But the turning point came when I saw my father suffering from a diabetic foot. I enrolled in FFD’s one-year diabetes reversal program - HTP immediately thinking I should act on time and not take diabetes too lightly.
Mrs. Sonia Fernandes
It was at FFD that I came to know that it was not asthma that I was suffering from, but it was acid reflux. I was misdiagnosed and treated wrongly for all these years. With proper FFD guidance and treatment, the so-called acid reflux problem got resolved. It took 1.5-2 months.
My weight loss has been 5 kg from 85 kg down to 80 kg. There is a lot more work to be done on this front.
I am still on diabetes medicines but on low doses. My HbA1c level has improved from 9 to 6.11 which is a great achievement for me.
My BP medicines have stopped, and steroids have stopped. There is no cough anymore and migraines have reduced. One more very interesting thing has happened, I can digest raw food which was not possible earlier.
"I am very happy that FFD has happened at right time"
