Incredible stories of remission from 

Defeat Diabetes members

The Defeat Diabetes online program has helped more than 8000 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.

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 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 Program two months ago, Toni has lost 10kg, her waistline is down 15cms, and she is close to achieving remission.

Better sleep

Weight loss can help ease symptoms of sleep apnoea, meaning you shouldn't be waking so easily in the night.

Weight loss

The Defeat Diabetes way of eating follows modern nutritional principles for better appetite control and effortless weight loss. 

Reduced risk of arthritis

When you reduce your carbohydrate intake, you reduce inflammation in the body leading to improvement in joint pain.

Reduced diabetes medications

Under the the guidance of your doctor you may be able to reduce diabetic medications when following a carb-restricted lifestyle. 

Type 2 diabetes remission

Research shows that carbohydrate restriction can help achieve type 2 diabetes, with blood glucose below thresholds and medication-free.
