Once thought of as a disease affecting mainly older adults, type 2 diabetes has been on the rise among younger people in Manitoba. In the last decade, the number of children in the province diagnosed with type 2 diabetes has risen by more than 50 percent, and the rate of diagnosis is even higher in First Nations communities, according to a new study from the Manitoba Center for Health Policy (MCHP) in partnership with the First Nations Health and Social Secretariat of Manitoba (FNHSSM).
Anupam Ghose, a physician by training, was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) in 2017. After the diagnosis of T2DM, he followed a low carbohydrate high fat diet and reversed his T2DM within a year. Now he has one main goal in life and that is to make people understand that the conventional method of treating T2DM is not beneficial. Type 2 diabetes is reversible and the best way to reverse T2DM is through diet and lifestyle modifications. He now decided to help people with type 2 diabetes by offering online coaching to reverse their diabetes.
