Case Study: Reversing 11 Years Of Pain And Frustration With Type 2 Diabetes In Less Than 6 Months

I’d like to take a moment to recognize the incredible 6-month transformation of Cynthia Bronte, one of my clients working diligently at reversing insulin resistance. This is another story that reflects the amazing mental, physical and emotional transformation that can occur with a strategic approach to plant-focused high-carbohydrate nutrition. Diagnosis with Type 2 Diabetes Cynthia was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2003, in the midst of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), an acute life-threatening condition that typically marks the onset of type 1 diabetes. Cynthia’s symptoms of DKA were unmistakable, and included urinating more than 14 times per day, insatiable thirst and low energy. Cynthia was unaware that her fasting blood sugar was 5 times higher than normal, at 550 mg/dL (normal blood sugars range from 70 – 130 mg/dL). Treatment Protocol When Cynthia was first diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, she was instructed to consume a low carbohydrate diet in order to minimize blood sugar. She was instructed to eat foods that were high in protein and fat, while limiting her intake of fruits, artificial sweeteners, grains, pastas, rice, bread and cereal.

    Infectious diseases, circulatory problems, and neurological disorders may affect the leg. However, most pain in the legs is due to overuse, injury, and age-related wear to the muscles, bones, joints, tendons and ligaments of the leg, including the hip, knee and ankle. Usually these diseases are not serious, and you can largely prevent and treat overuse injuries and problems with self-care measures and lifestyle changes. For example, adequate rest between periods of exertion and abstaining from extreme sports without proper conditioning are two practical methods to avoid leg trauma.
    Leg pain can result from diseases that can be addressed through self-care measures or by following your health care provider's treatment plan.

    Edit: There are many reasons for knee pain, many of which are also degenerative or due to trauma from working out. Runner's knee, patellofemoral arthralgia, and meniscal degeneration are less likely culprits from your short history, but are possible. If you have any additional concerns, consider going to a qualified physiatrist, a MD who specializes in physical medicine, or another qualified specialist.
    Varicose veins by themselves cannot cause joint pain in the way you describe. Since varicose veins are caused by disruption of the one way valve system in your veins, and does not coincide with the anatomy within the joint itself, it is not the cause of your pain. However, differential diagnosis considerations...
    1) age- are you overweight or over forty? Osteo-degeneration, (osteoarthritis) is one of the leading causes of knee pain without a specific cause. The articular cartilage wears away naturally with age or due to excess weight and causes morning stiffness that eases throughout the day. Consult with a rheumatologist or chiropractor who specializes in Evidence Based rehabilitation to give you relief.
    2) Varicosities can cause aching and discomfort- but is not joint pain. If those varicose veins were lower, you could perceive that as lower leg pain, for example.
    To help differentiate...
    Is the pain better in the morning, but stiff? Does the stiffness goes away in under an hour? Consider osteoarthritis.
    Is the pain constant, and gets worse with standing? Consider blood pooling in the veins and think of varicose veins causing secondary pain.
