PHILADELPHIA -- Diabetic and prediabetic contestants on the TV show
"The Biggest Loser" were off their medications within a few weeks of
starting an intense exercise regimen, researchers reported.
For example, one man with a hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) of 9.1, a body
mass index (BMI) of 51, and who needed six insulin injections a day
as well as other multiple prescriptions was off all medication by
week 3, said Robert Huizenga, MD, the medical advisor for the TV
show. Within 1 week, biomarkers for those with prediabetes and diabetes
had already improved (all P<0.0005):
Fasting glucose went from 91.1 to 75.1 mg/dL
Fasting insulin from 14.1 to 5.5 µIU/mL
Adiponectin from 8.6 to 10.5 µg/mL
HbA1c -0.53% at 6 months (P=0.0003)
A positive change in blood pressure was almost immediately
noticeable, Huizenga said. By week 5, it had declined from 138/90 to
123/76 mm Hg (P<0.0001) and everyone was off their blood pressure
medication. Interestingly, by week 5, "all diagnostic criteria for prediabetes,
diabetes, and hypertension were absent in each participant, despite
discontinuation of all diabetes and hypertension medications,"
according to the study. Comment anyone ?
Here are a few to get you started :
= What a dangerous and irresponsible experiment.
= This is not boilerplate.
= They could have died from a hypo.
= We don't know if healthy people exercise or if exercise makes you
healthy. = They are not cured
= Exercise makes me vomit
= I only exercise a thin slice on my birthday
= HbA1c is not a good marker for blood glucose
Can a person with chronic pancreatitis get off (diabetic) meds too...?
yes, also a person with a broken leg or pneumonia
Chronic pancreatitis patients are mostly slim. As I am.
I do NOT believe that I can ever get off insulin. Ive asked about this disease, I am in a quiet phase, dont have to use insulin at night right now. When in another phase, everything might change but it will not be for the better.
