Diet Over Surgery!

Dr. Davis and Patient

Vera came to see me for surgery due to diabetes and weight. She was very concerned about surgery. We discussed diet in detail. She has adopted a vegan lifestyle and is eating large amounts of fruits and veggies.

She has lost weight and feels incredible, but the crazy thing is her A1C has gone from 9.5 to 6.0. That is an astounding response for her diabetes labs. Her doc has had to decrease her meds dramatically.

If I invented a pill that could do that I would be rich and a Nobel prize winner. Unfortunately diet is too “extreme”. Yet, no surgery for Vera!
