  • Place - Madgaon, Goa

Hi all,

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.

Reversal journey

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.

My father passed away recently which has been a big setback for me.  But I noticed there was not a single episode of high BP that I faced in this situation.  FFD's journal writing has helped me tremendously in dealing with stress.

Key quotes
