Prescription medications and supplements included: levothyroxine sodium (thyroid), 0.50 mg daily; At 18 weeks, the patient had lost a total of ~21 lb. At the ezetimibe/simvastatin (cholesterol) 10/20 mg daily; 23-week visit, she noted more energy. Her fasting triamterene (hypertension), 50 mg daily; lisinopril glucose had been high at 107 to 127 mg/dL, with 2-hour (hypertension), 5 mg daily; calcium/magnesium/ postprandial at 105 to 110 mg/dL. She was instructed to zinc; fish oil; multivitamin/mineral; glucosamine/ replace UltraGlycemX with UltraGlycemX PLUS 360° Medical Food, 2 scoops twice daily, and continue the other prescribed nutraceuticals. At 25 weeks, her fasting glucose had improved with a maximum of 110 mg/dL. After 30 weeks, these values had sustained. Conclusion
Begin UltraGlycemX Medical Food, 2 scoops twice This case study suggests that targeted nutritional support that combines UltraGlycemX medical foods with LGLD Begin a Mediterranean-style, low-glycemic-load diet and aerobic exercise may help show improvement in clinical symptoms associated with type 2 diabetes. 9% Decrease in
Body Weight
After 30 weeks, the patient had a total loss of approximately 20 lb. A body composition analysis at 14 weeks confirmed an increase in lean muscle mass and decrease in fat mass. Excess body fat is associated with an increase in risk to insulin-related disorders 9% Decrease in
The patient’s body mass index (BMI)† was decreased from 36.2 (severely obese) to 33.1 (obese) in 30 weeks on the program. This result suggests a reduction in risk to lifestyle-related conditions. 13% Decrease in
Fasting Glucose
Fasting glucose levels for the patient decreased 17% in 14 weeks to within a normal reference range (65 to 120 mg/dL) and remained comparable at the 30-week follow-up visit. These results suggest improved glucose metabolism. * Selective kinase response modulators—or SKRMs—are nutritional substances Financial support for this study was provided by Metagenics, Inc.
