Abstract

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

status.
