Most diabetic people focus their attention on fasting
blood-glucose levels in order to control diabetes, rather than
on lowering after-meal glucose levels. Hemoglobin A1c is a
parameter that directly reveals the degree of “diabetes control”
during the preceding 90 days. Red blood cells live in the
bloodstream 60 to 90 days. Every 90 days new red blood cells are
born. Hemoglobin is a protein molecule that carries oxygen from
the lungs to the body’s cells wherever it is needed. While the
blood circulates, depending on how high the blood glucose level
is, a certain amount of glucose is attached to the hemoglobin to
form A1c. So, by measuring the hemoglobin A1c levels, it is
possible to know the average blood sugar level and the degree
to which it has been controlled over the preceding 90 days.
Blood glucose reaches its highest level immediately after the
consumption of a major meal. The elevated glucose levels
dominate in and largely contribute to establishing the average
glucose level over 90 days. After-meal glucose levels therefore
must be lowered and brought to normal within 1 or 2 hours of the
consumption of every major meal in order to control and bring
hemoglobin A1c close to its normal value.
At the same time, the insulin dose must be optimized.
Too much insulin causes hypoglycemia and constricts arteries,
leading to heart attack and coronary heart disease. Too much
insulin also stimulates the brain to feel hungry
and eat more and causes the liver to manufacture fat in the
belly. Too little insulin on the other hand would not be enough
to cover the entire meal, suggesting the fact that there must be
an optimal insulin dose. Insulin is
synthesized in such a way that it acts more quickly and much
more effectively with exercise. After-meal exercise,
either treadmill or walking, should be introduced into the
diabetes control plan in order to burn fat, lose calories and
optimize both the insulin dose and insulin action. After-meal
exercise minimizes the insulin dose and maximizes insulin action
and prevents after-meal glucose levels from rising too high,
thus keeping diabetes under tight control.
The Good News:
Consistent, serious and rigorous efforts towards lowering
after-meal glucose levels over a period of 3 to 6 months
gradually lowers the hemoglobin A1c level of a diabetic person
to its normal value, even if the diabetes was poorly controlled
in the past. Thereafter, continued efforts with a
reasonable attention to insulin, food and exercise after
are necessary to tightly control diabetes.
The author of this book, having been diabetic for over 20 years,
began to conduct diligent experiments to study the combined
influence of insulin dose and after-meal exercise on after-meal
blood glucose levels, and successfully lowered after-meal
glucose levels continuously and on a daily basis. For a selected
major meal (evening meal/supper), the Humalog insulin dose was cut by 50 to
60% through extensive research and optimization. From A1c
hemoglobin A1c levels dropped from a very high-risk 12% to a
stunning 6.2%, and since then has remained
normal for more than a year, indicating that the diabetes has
been permanently controlled. Shown below is the
flow sheet of trial and error procedure for diabetes control.
Reversed Critical Heart Disease
the participant suffered from severe angina, and could not walk
even a block as his heart arteries were clogged. It was clear
that he was suffering from critical heart disease. An
Angiogram indicated that his left artery was clogged 75%, and
his cardiologist recommended and insisted an immediate bypass
surgery. But the participant said "NO" to surgery, and started
controlling his diabetes diligently. By conducting daily
experiments of diabetes control diligently, the
participant was able to successfully lowered hemoglobin
a1c levels to normal, and maintained the normal
hemoglobin A1c levels. As a result, he was able to reverse his coronary
heart diseases without surgery. He has no more angina as his
arteries were cleared.
After the completion of his research phase, as he was rewarded
by his own monitoring and researching experience, the same
participant skillfully monitors his diabetes blood glucose
level only a few times a day (2 or 3 times), and eats any kind
of food he likes the most including in restaurants, still his
diabetes is tightly controlled. He is confident that his
diabetes will surely remain tightly controlled forever.
Fasting Glucose and A1c Test Results of
7% of HbA1c means diabetes is fairly controlled
Below 6.2% of HbA1c means diabetes is perfectly controlled
are the official blood test results of Dr. RK, performed with physician’s
BC Biomedical Laboratories (Life Labs), Vancouver, British
This table shows the evidence of how Dr. RK accomplished
Permanent Diabetes Control.
Normal A1c for
healthy non-diabetic people: 4.8% - 6.2%
Dr. RK, by being very seriously diabetic and highly
achieved an A1c of 5.0%
with his own diligence and expert knowledge on diabetes.
Very few diabetic people in the world have perfectly normal A1c.
He now monitors his glucose levels only 2 or 3 times a day.
