Incredible stories of remission from 

Defeat Diabetes members

The Defeat Diabetes Low Carb Program has helped more than 9,500 members living with pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes to achieve their goals. 

As a nurse, Tina thought she knew how to manage her type 2 diabetes. For six years, she followed the advice of her diabetes educator and GP, but nothing worked. After trying every ‘diet’ out there, Tina decided to give Defeat Diabetes a go.

In just five months, she lost 13kg and  her HbA1c has gone from 8.4 to 5.7.

Shane Dobson

After a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes 15 years ago, living with high blood sugar became the norm for Shane, a retiree from Gippsland. Since joining the Defeat Diabetes Low Carb Program Shane has lost 26kg and now prioritises his diet and daily exercise. His HbA1c has dropped and he’s reduced his medications - but the benefits don’t stop there.

Living in rural Australia, Toni became a "full-on carb addict" as she struggled to maintain healthy eating habits. Then, she was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes after a routine check-up. It was a rude awakening. But since joining the Defeat Diabetes Low Carb Program two months ago, Toni has lost 10kg, her waistline is down 15cms, and she is close to achieving remission.

What benefits can you expect?

Improved blood glucose levels

Carbohydrate restricted eating tends to improve blood glucose levels almost immediately. This is because carbohydrates are converted to glucose (sugar) in the bloodstream causing blood glucose to rise. 

Better sleep

Reduced weight loss can help ease symptoms of sleep apnoea, meaning you shouldn't be waking so easily in the night (good for you, and anyone you might be keeping awake!).

Weight loss

The Defeat Diabetes way of eating follows modern scientific principles for weight loss, leading to better appetite control, reduced appetite and increased energy expenditure, even at rest.

Reduced risk of arthritis

When you reduce your carbohydrate intake, you reduce inflammation in the body. Reduced inflammation can lead to improvements in joint pain.

Reduced diabetes medications

By lowering blood glucose levels you may also be able to reduce or stop the need for glucose lowering medications under medical supervision.

Reduced reflux and heartburn

Research shows that low carbohydrate diets can reduce the amount of acid in the oesophagus and relieve symptoms of reflux.
