Treating Type 2 Diabetes: A Tale of Two Brothers

Day in and day out, I hear stories of how conventional medicine has failed my patients and their families and friends. The following is a story of two brothers with type 2 diabetes. One came to the Whitaker Wellness Institute. The other, well, he chose a different path.

Type 2 Diabetes: Similar Symptoms, Different Decisions

When I first saw T.K., he was 70 pounds overweight, taking several prescriptions for treating his type 2 diabetes and related complications, and dealing with a severely infected foot. Conventional wound care had been unsuccessful and he was facing amputation, so in a last-ditch effort to save his foot, he came to Whitaker Wellness.

I covered T.K.’s open, festering sore with sugar and bandaged it up. We stopped his numerous medications, prescribed an intensive regimen of vitamins and minerals and put him on a diet to manage his blood sugar and stimulate weight loss. That was 21 years ago. T.K. still comes to the clinic a couple of times a year—on his own two feet. His weight and blood sugar are under control, he has sidestepped the complications that afflict most people with a long history of diabetes, and he has led an extraordinarily active, productive and accomplished life over the past two decades.

T.K. had a brother who also had type 2 diabetes. His brother, however, opted to stick with the treatments for type 2 diabetes recommended by his conventional physicians, who dismissed the idea of controlling infection with sugar and blood glucose with supplements. He was plagued with diabetic neuropathy and kidney problems, had several amputations, and died in his early 60s of diabetes-related complications.

Two brothers with similar health challenges, markedly divergent treatment paths—and dramatically different outcomes.
