Extent of Diabetic Nephropathy Reversal in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Patients by following the Freedom from Diabetes Protocol
Keywords:Plant-based diet, Exercise, Microalbuminuria, Serum Creatinine, Diabetic nephropathy.
Introduction - The purpose of the study is to test the efficacy of Freedom From Diabetes (FFD) protocol on
diabetic nephropathy patients.
Methods – Out of 776 participants enrolled, 302 had diabetic nephropathy. Selected participants were given
a specially modified plant based diet along with lymphatic movement, anti-gravity exercises and relevant
supplements to reverse the effects of nephropathy. Baseline characteristics, anthropometric measurements
and biochemical parameters were measured on visit 1 and visit 2.
Results - After 6 months, there was a significant reduction in urinary microalbumin and serum creatinine
levels which was accompanied by improvement in glycemic control. Anthropometric measurements like
body weight and BMI also showed a significant improvement.
Conclusion - This study states that FFD protocol (specifically adapted plant-based diet along with lymphatic
movement and anti-gravity exercises) with relevant supplements helps in improving diabetic nephropathy
